Hi so I’m clueless about what to put here so thought I’d start with an explanation of why I chose the Mórrígan for my icon, then a comment post I’ve just done and I’ll find the link to the author of the relevant page also.
So the Mórrígan. I read a book ‘The Ravens of Avalon’ by Diana L Paxson following on from having read the ‘Mists of Avalon’ by Marion-Zimmer Bradly. In the story that unfolds, the Mórrígan possesses Queen Boudica and is the reason for her military genius up to the final battle with the Romans – the Battle of Watling Street – where the Celtic Army were annihilated by the Romans. I thought this was really awesome actually – the posession, not the slaughter of men, women, and children by the Romans – but that is history and the course of history would have been very different if the Romans had not won that battle.
