Brittany Fairies

I live in Brittany, where the fairies are Margot and Morgane, where the elves are Korrigan.

Near Le Gouray in Côtes d’Armor, is a magic hill called Mount Croquelien. Covered with bonsai trees and rugged rocks, the ancient sanctuary once belonged to the great Brocéliande or Dark Forest, granite wood that covered all of central Brittany. Inland, everyone will tell you, Mont Croquelien is the birthplace of fairy Margot.

“Queen Marguerite de Valois was nicknamed La Reine Margot, a nickname popularized thanks to the eponymous theater and the eponymous novel by Alexandre Dumas in the 19th century. Then the Margaux form was popularized in a more recently manner, according the first wine of the same name: Chateau Margaux, whose second element Margaux  is itself a variant of Margot. Hemingway, a great lover of Château Margaux, one of the first to have named his daughter Margaux under the orthographic form” Wikipedia says.

But no one says Marguerite de Valois was a fairy.

She was kind of a witch actually, even if the difference between fairy and witch is often only a figure of speech. Women of great power are fairies, and they are witches as well, depending on the imagination of the passer-by.

There are two kinds of fairies. Fairy tales are half-goddesses; they enjoy a supernatural power by right of birth; the fairies of old tales of chivalry have acquired their power to a lesser extent, by the study of magic books.

It was during this second class belong among other Viviane and Morgane, fairy famous in the fabulous history of the Knights of the Round Table.

Morgane is sister of King Arthus or Arthur, ie the Bear, founder of the secular order. It is presented as an evil fairy who harasses too soft Juniper, wife of Arthur. Viviane, protective jealous of the brave Lancelot was treated better by the old novelists.

Brittany is a land of fairies. Their home is under the rocks and into the forest. Pixie Hollow is Concoret, on the northern edge of the forest Brocéliande Paimpont or, on the borders of Morbihan and Ille-et-Vilaine. Concoret is a name of Breton origin, kon-Jored, meaning Pixie Hollow.

Margot Fairyland is located in the countryside away from the coast. One can reach there via Croquelien by a full moon night at the stroke of midnight.

However, the village of rocks on top of Mount Croquelien allow us to satisfy our curiosity and learn more about their habits. In good weather, they like to take a bath in a granite pool. Everyone can’t do! Only obeying their orders, the magical energies of wind and rain have carved the rock in the shape of a pool. Margot fairies are smart enough: their bathtub on Mount Croquelien enjoys magnificent views over the Bay of Saint-Brieuc, 30km away. (source) 

 

Yeah. If you want my opinion, sharp tools have quite helped the magical forces of nature to dig tubs as perfect, and coincidentally just the size of a human body. The Druids knew how much water is precious Jade, provided they are collected as rain storm, and stay for a whole moon in the open air, in a stone basin only.

Contact with the metal, in particular, could destroy the wonderful virtues of water Jade. Ancient civilizations lightning all had a great mastery of hydraulics for that very reason. Here the sea is far away, yet it remains visible at the bottom of the horizon to remind us that the country Margot is not that of Morgan.

By confusing them both, Wikipedia shows once again his ignorance: “Margot margotines or are in the Breton and Welsh traditions, rustic fairy Excellent dancers, they are usually generous and close to nature Their name comes likely from a deformation of Morgane, the famous fairy Arthurian legend, itself derived from Old Irish Muirgen meaning “born of the sea.” They were also named “Morgan” originally in Lower Brittany” (source)

Morgane is a distortion of the Breton Morrigan, which is the feminine form of Korrigan. Morrigans are fairies from the shore, spells related to the sea and the waves, and elsewhere related to Ondines.

They are the female counterpart of hazardous Korrigan named Yann An Aod ie Yann of the Coast, the sinister dark silhouette evoking sulphurous stories of pirates, also formerly called the Brothers of the Coast. Yes, just like Mean Yann.

As for dear and proud Margot, she has nothing to do with sand, waves and kelp. Her place is ferns, mosses and scrub oaks. Margot is absolutely not a distortion of Morrigan. Margot fairies, native to Croquelien, are purely inland fairies, they are the genuine rural and woodland fairies of central Brittany. Now central Brittany was called Argoat, who gave the French argot, ie slang. Argoat, ie inland Brittany woods, opposes Brittany coastline named Armor. Margot or rather Margotte means Ma (m) Argoat, ie Mother Hood. Mothers are Margot fairies, just because they were on this planet long before humans.

But they are not at all motherly: do not expect sweet caress and tender care provided. If you ever see Margot naked in the granite pool, you are likely to feel her claws. Protect your eyes, you fool! Rush away, don’t look back !!
