    The Morrígan 

    If you have even a passing interest in Irish mythology then you have likely come across The Morrígan being referenced online and in books.

    She is an immensely popular figure, and is associated by many with death, prophesy, fate, war, battle, victory and magic. She has many guises both human and animal. She has appeared in stories as a beautiful young woman, an old weathered crone, a wolf, an eel, a cow, and perhaps most famously as a crow or a raven.

    Sometimes considered to have been a triple goddess, she was thought to have been the daughter of Ernmas and Delbáeth and the sister to Macha and Badb. She was also thought to have been a wife or lover to the Daghda and possible bore him a child named Adair, though her family history is somewhat hazy.

    Different Portrayals

    Over time many different versions of her persona have come and gone. She has been linked to the Banshee of later Irish folklore, and some people have linked her to Morgan Le Fay from Welsh mythology (though this is likely wishful thinking).

    Countless retellings of her stories combined with some efforts by the Church to rewrite her as a monstrous figure have made it difficult to know exactly what she was to the ancient people of Ireland. Though in the texts and stories that we have available to us she has several important appearances.
