Closer Look at the Sword in the Stone

What is it? The Sword in the Stone

The Story: After the king passed away without leaving an heir a sword was placed in a stone and anvil with the inscription, "Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil is rightwise ruler born of England." Guests are invited to step up and attempt to pull the sword from the stone to see if they are the rightful ruler of England.

Up until a few years ago, Merlin the Magician from the 1963 Disney film would come out for a ten minute show where he searched for the "Temporary Ruler of the Realm." He would turn to the audience, and with a little help from some Disney magic, the sword would rise leaving only about a quarter of it still in the stone! So step right up and try your luck!
