Origin of the name MORGAUSE.
Etymology of the name MORGAUSE.
Meaning of the baby name MORGAUSE.

  

MORGAUSE.  Arthurian.  The wife of king Lot of Orkney.  A variant form of Morgan (q.v.), meaning "great queen."  Also spelled Margawse.

    In some of the romances there is great confusion between Elain (the sister) and Morgause (the half-sister) of Arthur.  Both are called the mother of Mordred, and both are also called the wife of Lot.  This, however, is a mistake.  Elain was the wife of sir Nentres, and Morgause of Lot; and if Gawain, Agrawain, Gareth, and Gaheris were [half-]brothers of Mordred, as we are told over and over again, then Morgause and not Elain was his mother.  Tennyson makes Bellicent the wife of Lot, but this is not in accordance with any of the legends collected by sir T. Malory... (Character Sketches of Romance, Fiction and Drama, Brewer, 1902)
