This article studies Merlin’s characterization in Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote. In order to do this, the two appearances of the enchanter,in the Montesino’s Cave and in the dukes’ hunt, are analyzed. To understand Merlin’s characterization and the reason of its appearancein Cervantes’ novel, we part from its attributes in Golden Age Castilian Romances of Chivalry and other Chivalric sources. Besides, many attributes of Merlin’s characterization in Cervantes´work are explained with its long tradition, dating to Middle Ages.
