TriviaEdit

  • The spells used in Merlin are generally in Old English. The spells are written by the scripts' writers in English and then given to be translated into Old English.
  • The Dragonlords' spells are in a form of Ancient Greek called Homeric Greek, while the Sidhe and pixies' spells from "The Gates of Avalon" and "The Changeling" are in Old Irish and written in Ogham. The Dragonlords' spells have been partially translated, but, because the editors aren't experts, it is possible that they are incorrect. The translation (decided by the script's writers and then translated into Old Irish) for the Sidhe and pixies' spells used in the episode "The Changeling" has also been found.
  • Interestingly, "The Hollow Queen" (S5Ep8) and "The Drawing of the Dark" (S5Ep11) are the only episodes in which no verbal spells are chanted.
