The paramour of Morgan le Fay. First appearing in an expansion of De Boron's Merlin, Malory then picks up his tale. Morgan steals Excalibur, gives it to Accolon and leaves a non-magical replica in its stead. Arthur, sensing the deception, recovers his sword and defeats Accolon in battle. Accolon only recognizes Arthur after receiving a mortal blow from him. He asks and receives forgiveness. After his death, his body is sent to Morgan.
