MORGAN LE FAY.  Arthurian legend name, meaning "Morgan the Fairy."

    Morgan le Fay (i.e. La Fée, the fairy), in Sir Thomas Malory's Morte d'Arthur (1470), sister of King Arthur, wife of King Vrience, and paramour of Sir Accolon of Gaul.  Among other evil deeds she stole her brother's sword, Excalibur, and sent it to Accolon, who thereupon challenged Arthur to single combat.  Accolon dropped the sword in the midst of the fray, it was seized and recognized by Arthur.  He would have slain the knight, but that he prayed for mercy and confessed all the treasonable plot, viz., that Arthur should die, whereupon Accolon would seize the kingdom and marry Morgan, Vrience having previously been made away with by that lady.
