Born of the chaos of the Dark Ages, the Dream of Eagles produced
a king, a country and an everlasting legend-Camelot
Merlyn Britannicus, Commander of Camulod, must educate his young
charge, Arthur Pendragon, future King of Britain.
Threats against young Arthur's life have forced Merlyn and the
boy to leave Camulod, settling in an abandoned Roman fort, where
they are safe from political intrigue. Enlisting help from a
close-knit group of friends, Merlyn teaches the young King about
warfare, justice, honour and the responsibilities of leadership in
preparation to wield the sword Excalibur.
When the tenuous peace of Camulod is threatened by unrest in
neighbouring regions, Merlyn faces a dilemma. How can he prepare
the young Arthur to be a ruler of men when he continues to train
him in isolation? Merlyn knows that he must risk the dream of his
grandfather Caius Britannicus if he is ever to fulfill it.
