I actually don’t know of twins! But maybe someone does :D

About siblings (in Malory, other sources are written down): Gawain, Gaheris, Gareth and Agravaine are brothers, Clarissant is their sister (in a continuation of the Percival), Mordred is their half brothers (in Geoffrey of Monmouth Gawain and Mordred are brothers); Elaine of Astolat and Lavaine; Morgause, Elaine and Morgana are sisters and Arthur is their half brother; Lucan and Bedivere are brothers; Lamorak, Percival and Aglovale are brothers or at least half brothers and Tor is their half brother; Palamides, Safir and Segwarides are brothers; Lancelot and Hector de Maris are half brothers; Bors and Lionel are brothers; Lynette and Lyonesse; Guinevere and Guinevak are half sisters (in Lancelot-Grail but I am not sure); Llacheu is Arthur’s son in the Welsh Triads (I guess we can call him Loholt later? Or we consider Loholt a different son) and Amr is Arthur’s son in Nennius so they are half brothers and Mordred’s half brothers too; Madoc is Arthur’s brother in Welsh texts; Ywain and Ywain the Bastard are half brothers and… I can’t think of anyone else but I am sure there’s some other sibling around XD

Some modern authors have twins in the Orkney crew, either Agravain and Gaheris are twins or Gaheris and Gareth are twins.  I think Agravain and Gaheris as twins appears in Mary Stewart’s Wicked Day and Nancy McKenzie’s Queen of Camelot.  Gaheris and Gareth are twins in Jane Yolen’s Sword of the Rightful King.  

In some texts, Merlin has a twin sister named Ganieda (though she also appears as his half-sister in some instances, as well). As for other siblings, there’s Percival and Dindrane (either full-siblings or half) and La Cote Mal Taillée (Bruenor) and Dinadan (in the Tavola Ritonda, they also have a brother named Daniel).

Wonderful! Thank you! About merlin I tink it was Geoffrey of Monmouth’s Merlin where he had a sister?

timbits-tootsie asked for Mordred with “I Was Born For This” from Journey Soundtrack for the music meme so I drew Mordred refusing to drink from the grail.

Yes there are! I’ve completely forgot about them, poor guys.

Thank you!

As far as I know it’s in some modern novels :D (edit: storytellerknight wrote here a list of novels)

ah YES! Morvydd/Morfyth and Owain/Ywain are siblings, maybe twins? :D I don’t remember. I completely forgot about them, thank you!

The faces of King Arthur

I don’t know where else to share this, so…
This dress-up doll creator website I frequent just came out with a Queen of the Deck-themed doll game, so I kinda went and made the Lady of the Lake holding Excalibur.
I may have based her off Sara Ramirez’s Lady of the Lake, yep >.>;;
