    Re: The Legend of Bladud
    These stories always fascinate me with their motifs of the lost king- a tribal leader who is expected to have great knowledge of the landscape-where the cattle should graze;where the springs of water are good not bad and how to contact the ancestors in I suppose shamanic style rituals. In short they have to be up to the mark and if they are not they are cast out, but only temporarily (the mother has faith and knows he will return. However they can only be recognised because they carry a physical symbol, in other words, they themselves have become so transformed by their learning and abilities, that only the ring identifies them. So he learnt how to cure his tribe of their afflictions(and indeed his own deficieces), by gaining knowledge in the wilderness.Well,that’s my interpretation.
