Lady Igraine is the mother of the famous King Arthur. She was married to the Gorlois, Duke of Tintagel. From that union, she mothered the Ladies Morgawse, Morgan, and Elaine. Notably the most beautiful woman in the kingdom, she was coveted by King Uther Pendragon who led an attack against Tintagel to have her. Merlin enchanted Uther to become the outward guise of the Duke so he could rape Igraine. From the union came Arthur; with a mix of Pendragon and Arimathea blood. In battle against Uther's armies the Duke died and Uther took Igraine as his wife; thus she became Queen Igraine.  After the birth of Arthur and the theft of him by Merlin, Uther died. After that Igraine retired to a nunnery and died in cloister.  Though she lived in cloister at the end of her life, I think she never left the Old Path and converted to the Christianity. Lady Igraine was the female guardian of the myths of Avalon.
