In that time, a sea-princess named Igraine of Avalon came to marry a man of the sacred clan where she bore him a daughter named Morgan. As was custom, the child was taken at the age of 7 to the House of Virgins in order to undergo her training that was located at the great sun temple of the Crystal City of the volcanic island of Ruta. At 14 years old, the males were made warriors or scribes whilst the women were given in marriage to the sacred clan for magical purposes.

In this moment, a young priest named Myraddin warned of a upcoming and long foretold catastrophe that would affect them all. The ancient priest of the sun entrusted to Myraddin with secret scrolls and his daughter Igraine. The catastrophe was an eruption of the volcanic island where the resultant tidal wave drowned the remaining islands of Atlantis. During this time, Myraddin and Igraine had taken Morgan from the House of Virgins where they escaped on a merchant ship from Tingail. They later arrived on the isle of Britain where Myraddin changed his name to Merlin and established a place of druidic worship at Stonehenge. He also arranged for Igraine to marry Gorlois who was the Duke of the Tin Islands with Morgan being adopted by the man. (Namor the Sub-Mariner v1 #62)
