I always daydream about having a Freaky Friday episode with one of my favorite characters. 'The Librarian' will be the top choice if you ask me and I found all the adventures and myths of each artifact very fascinating. My blog will introduce the artifacts (A-Z)could mentioned in the TV series/movies with which you get to collect information on both TV facts and Fun facts. 



INTRODUCTION



The enthralling realm of artifact knowledge is explored in "The Librarians"—an entertaining television series and film franchise. The show centers on the Library, an old institution that has been there for a long time, and it follows a group of gifted people responsible for keeping magical and powerful artifacts safe. The audience is swept away on a thrilling trip brimming with magic, adventure, and intelligence as the team faces various legendary and historical obstacles. The artifacts showcased in the show have special abilities and a fascinating past, which makes each episode more intriguing. A mesmerizing medley of fantastical elements, comedic moments, and suspense, "The Librarians" transports viewers on an exciting journey into the supernatural while stressing the significance of safeguarding the knowledge contained within these remarkable relics.



MOVIES


Starring Noah Wyle, The Librarian is a series of original fantasy-adventure MTV films produced by Turner Network Television (TNT) about a man whose job it is to safeguard a hidden collection of artifacts.


The Librarian: Quest for the Spear (2004)

Flynn Carsen, played by Noah Wyle, is introduced in Quest for the Spear as the new librarian employed by the Metropolitan Public Library. Flynn has no idea that the library has been around for ages and that it conceals several priceless artifacts, some of which have magical powers, such as Excalibur, Pandora's Box, and the Ark of the Covenant. To restore the stolen portion of the Spear of Destiny from the library, Flynn enlists Nicole Noone's assistance.


The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines (2006)

In the opening scene of Return to King Solomon's Mines, Flynn is shown at a gathering hosted by his mother. There, he reunites with "Uncle" Jerry, a beloved acquaintance of Flynn's late father. Along his journey to find King Solomon's Mines, Flynn befriends archaeologist Emily Davenport, who provides him with translation assistance in the Akon (aklo algolis) language. All is not as it appears as they meet up with Jerry in Kenya.


The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice (2008)

As Flynn follows a bizarre dream in Curse of the Judas Chalice, he ends up in New Orleans and is entangled in a Russian plot involving the infamous vampire Prince Vlad Dracul. Flynn must confront his anxieties once more and safeguard the Judas Chalice, a highly potent and perilous artifact, from the clutches of those who would do him harm.


Main Characters

1. Flynn Carsen is unparalleled in his brilliance, despite being a nerdy bookworm. By 31, he had 12 Bachelor's, 6 Master's, and 4 doctorates (22 degrees). 4 Egyptology degrees, a Comparative Religions Ph.D., and a Cyberlogy degree. In The Quest for the Spear, his Egyptology professor approves his 23rd degree.  His intelligence, resourcefulness, and polymath status make Flynn unparalleled. When he yells, his lightning-fast thinking causes incoherence and frustration. He works like Sherlock Holmes in observation and deduction thanks to his talent and training. The work didn't fit his typical talents of Dewey numbering, the Library of Congress, research paper orthodoxy, web searching, and RSS feed setup. No Librarian had ever deciphered the untranslated Language of the Birds in seven hours before his first assignment. The only previous doer was the bookstore. Flynn becomes a brave, supernatural-oblivious hero.


2.  Charlene is the stern, no-nonsense head librarian who interviews Flynn for the position of "The Librarian". Flynn's acute observational abilities allowed him to characterize Charlene's mononucleosis, recent divorce, three cats, and childhood nose injury minutes after meeting her. When asked by an invisible Judson, "What's more important than knowledge?" He remembered his mother's wise words: "The things that make life worth living can not be thought here (pointing to his head), they must be felt here (hand over heart)." Flynn got hired after answering one question.

 Charlene, the administrator, is bureaucratic; she threatens to reduce Flynn's pay if he breaks anything and requires him to keep his receipts for excursion reimbursements. Her face stays straight while Flynn quips. She denied "doing funny."


3. Judson was "The Librarian" and advises future successors, according to the first film's introduction. His Marine Corps tattoo helps him fight. He enjoys kite flying and eBay shopping in his free time. Mirrors, TV screens, and astral projection allow him to communicate with the Librarian at any time. He dies after the third film 15 years before the TV program premieres. Flynn keeps a crape-draped self-portrait at his desk. Judson appears in the full-length mirror next to his painting, reaffirming his promise to Eve that he is still with her. Eve is shocked to learn this simple reality. According to Curse of the Judas Chalice, Judson may have founded the Library, although he considers the idea "insulting." Still, the film suggests this. In season four, he is revealed to be the original Librarian, Charlene his Guardian, and they perform the Tethering ritual, a key storyline. Judson and Charlene perform a ceremony to send the Library into the abyss when the Serpent Brotherhood invades the Library. After Charlene dies in Season 3, she accompanies him to the afterlife.

The Librarians (2014 TV series)



TV SERIES


Created and hosted by John Rogers for TNT, The Librarians is a fantasy adventure series set in the United States. Starting on December 7, 2014, it continued in the same canon as the Librarian films and was a direct spin-off of the franchise.

ARTIFACTS


A





1. Aesop's lyre 

  • TV Fact

It is a musical instrument (and the symbol of Apollo) that can make animals talk. Jenkins mentioned it as one of the artifacts that can bring fairy tales to life.

  • Fun Fact

Greek storyteller Aesop (pronounced /ˈiːsɒp/ or /ˈeɪsɒp/) was born between 620 and 564 BCE. He wrote various fables, currently collected as Aesop's Fables. numerous stories attributed to him have been passed down and translated into several languages, continuing a storytelling tradition without an author or date. Most stories about him depict humanoid animals.

Aristotle, Herodotus, and Plutarch give partial histories of Aesop. The Aesop Romance, a probable fictional book, has bits of his life. Traditionally, he is shown as a vile slave who becomes free and advises monarchs and city-states through his wits. Esop(e) and Isope were his previous names. Over the last 2,500 years, Aesop has appeared in many works of art including books, films, plays, and TV shows. The reference to "Aesop's lyre," is not well known. A stringed musical instrument, the lyre was popular in classical Greece and associated with Orpheus. Aesop is best known for his moral lectures and fables, not music.





2.  Angrboda Crystal

  • TV Fact

One unusual Norse relic discovered in The Library is the Angrboda Crystal. Hidden in Finland, it remained charmed within an ice block until its owners once again needed its powers.

Life Extension:  Regular users of the Crystal's energies can live forever.

Immense Energy:  Before requiring a recharge, the Crystal may nourish tens of Frost Giants with its enchantment.

Glowing:  To indicate its presence, the Angrboda Crystal will light up blue, if its name is said.

Symbiosis:  It can enter the chest of creatures that tap into its power. This will mean no harm or benefit to humans, as the Crystal will be expelled from their bodies a few days after the fusion.

  • Fun Fact

Angrboða, meaning 'the one who gives grief','she-who-offers-sorrow,' or 'harm-bidder' in Old Norse, has been rendered with several meanings. In Norse mythology, Loki marries the Frost Giant Angrboða or Angrboda to have sons named Fenrir, Hel, and Jörmungandr. These sons will go on to kill prominent gods in the final great battle, Ragnarök. Thus, she is the progenitor of an infinite supply of horrible, awful evil.





3.  Apep's sarcophagus

  • TV Fact

Long ago, in the year 2000, Judson confined Apep in his sarcophagus. After its discovery, the sarcophagus was placed on display in a museum. It was opened by a former navy officer, who happened to be Apep's lover. Next, Dosa placed the sarcophagus in storage until Cynthia Rockwell opened it and Apep took possession of her.

  • Fun Fact

Death does not concern Apep (or Apophis) because he is not mortal according to Egyptian mythology. Often depicted as a massive serpent, Apep is the symbol of anarchy. In the stories of Apep, the solar deity Ra and this wild creature get into a conflict. An important character in Egyptian mythology was Apep, whose name was Apophis. In his typical form as a gigantic serpent, Apep stands for anarchy. The Egyptian solar god Ra faces off against the destructive deity Apep. Apep stands for evil in Egyptian mythology.

The mythical Apep resides in Hades and, each night, attempts to suck the sun out of existence, leading to eclipses. To ensure the continuation of life, the solar deity Ra battled Apep nightly and announced triumph at dawn. Apep depicts the unending fight between order and chaos in Egyptian mythology. While praying and doing rituals to appease Apep, the worship of Apep was viewed as bad.





4.  Apple of Discord

  • TV Fact

Goddess Eris concocted the Apple of Discord as a magical fruit to sow discord. Legend has it that the goddess of strife, Eris, created the Apple of Discord so that the three most beautiful goddesses in Greek mythology—Aphrodite, Athena, and Hera—would be at odds with one another. Once upon a time, there was an Eastern Dragon (or Fei Lung) whose Mystic Pearl contained the Apple. Even if the Pearl contained an Apple, the dragons didn't know it.

Abilities

Influence: Its power to shape its possessor is undeniable. The Apple does not alter the bearer's inherent character but rather makes them worse off until they let go of the Apple, reflecting Eris's desire to prevent magical repercussions. Apple seems to be able to tap into a person's suppressed aspects, which could explain why Ezekiel remains unaffected.

Its power to shape its possessor is undeniable. The Apple does not alter the bearer's inherent character but rather makes them worse off until they let go of the Apple, reflecting Eris's desire to prevent magical repercussions. 

  • Fun Fact

Hellenic mythology's "Apple of Discord" is imaginary. Things before the Trojan War were closely related. All the gods save Eris, the goddess of discord, attended a wedding feast, according to most accounts. Infuriated that she was not invited to the meal, Eris flung a golden apple into the goddesses to cause chaos. The apple said, "For the fairest". Aphrodite, Athena, and Hera felt she was the most beautiful and took the fruit. Zeus abstained from the discussion and appointed Paris, a mortal prince of Troy, to decide. Every deity bribed or otherwise tried to influence Paris. Aphrodite promised Paris Helen, the most beautiful mortal woman, as his. Paris kidnaps Helen, causing the Trojan War when the Greeks fight to get her back. Despite its seeming insignificance, the "Apple of Discord" sparks conflict.





5.  Asmodeus Grimoire

  • TV Fact

Merlin crafted the Asmodeus Grimoire, a book that housed the malevolent and excessively strong soul of Asmodeus, one of the seven Princes of Hell. If the book had remained in the hands of Jeff Peppers, he could have used it to become Jenkins and work with The Librarians, his lifelong ambition.

  • Fun Fact 

A figure from many mythology and religious writings, Asmodeus is most commonly associated with the Judeo-Christian and Islamic canons.

Early Christianity and Judaism:

Asmodeus, who is typically linked with desire and wealth, is viewed as a demon in certain demonological traditions. The Jewish mythology describes Asmodeus as king of demons. The legendary tale of Tobit tells of Asmodeus, who fell head over heels for Sarah, daughter of Raguel, and murdered each of her seven husbands on the night of their weddings. After Tobias defeated Asmodeus and married Sarah, he followed the advice of the angel Raphael. During the building of the First Temple in Jerusalem, Solomon enslaved the demon and had him work as a slave, according to the Talmud. A more benevolent Asmodeus is portrayed in other Haggadic tales.

Some Islamic demonology accounts link Asmodeus to a character called Azazil, who is comparable to Iblis, the Islamic Satan. Things aren't always black and white, though, and people's understandings could differ.





6.  Atlantean Thaumatite

  • TV Fact

The Atlantean Thaumatite was a crucial magical material that, when misused, caused the city of Atlantis to collapse. They attempted to use a fragment of Atlantean thaumatite that had gotten into DARPA's custody to decipher quantum computing. Unfortunately, they found themselves ensnared in a virtual reality game that Eziekial Jones had initially interpreted as a time loop—a glitch that had occurred when the quantum computer, powered by magic, encountered its flawed code. Returning the Thaumatite to the Library, the Librarians ensured its safekeeping.

  • Fun Fact

Commonly, "Atlantean" conjures visions of Atlantis and its superior society. Plato's "Timaeus" and "Critias," two ancient dialogues, include most of His Atlantis tale.

According to Plato, Atlantis was a technological powerhouse that sank in a horrible accident. Atlantis' details and location are disputed because no archaeological evidence has been uncovered. Numerous literary and cultural works have featured Atlantis, which has long fascinated historians, authors, and fans. These settings can use "Atlantean" to refer to anything related to Atlantis.

"Atlantean" may refer to the magical or high-tech characteristics of a fictional Atlantis in fantasy literature, video games, or movies. Many applications are based on creative Atlantis myths across genres.





7Apollo's Tablet

  • TV Fact

The Florence Mortuary is where Nicole Noone hid the stolen artifact Apollo's Tablet, which is believed to have originated in Greece. In her quest to find enchanted objects, Nicole Noone used Apollo's Tablet. She used it to find out that the Ukrainian Polesie Forest was home to Koschei's Needle.

  • Fun Fact

Apollo is a major and multifunctional god in Greek mythology. He is multifaceted, hence Apollo is associated with numerous realms. His symbols include the sun, prophecy, poetry, music, healing, and archery. He was usually shown as the Sun God pulling the sun on a chariot. Apollo patronized art and music. Often depicted playing the lyre, he was the supreme Muse, goddess of learning and art. Many myths feature Apollo. Pythian Games were named after him because he killed the serpent Python.





8. Amelia Earhart's Airplane

  • TV Fact

The Library conceals Amelia Earhart's Aeroplane, perhaps at the Large Collections Annex. Its powers are unknown since the series never featured it.

  • Fun Fact

The legendary aviator Amelia Earhart is most recognized for her failed effort to fly around the world. On her last flight, she flew a Lockheed Model 10 Electra. The plane in question was a Lockheed Electra 10E with the identifier NR16020 on its tail. Tragically, while flying over the Pacific Ocean on July 2, 1937, Earhart and Noonan vanished. Near Howland Island was the last confirmed position. The plane they were on was never located, and nobody ever got to the bottom of why Amelia Earhart went missing. Numerous ideas have been advanced to explain Amelia Earhart's and Fred Noonan's disappearance, but so far, no proof of their whereabouts or the fate of the Lockheed Electra has been found.





9. Ark of the Covenant

  • TV Fact

The Library houses the artifact known as the Ark of the Covenant. Its capabilities are a mystery since it was never employed on the show.

  • Fun Fact

The Old Testament, or Hebrew Bible, infuses the Ark of the Covenant with religious and historical significance. Exodus and other biblical scriptures describe it in detail. According to the Bible, the Tablets of the Law—stone tablets with the Ten Commandments given to Moses on Mount Sinai—were stored in the Ark. The Israelites believed the Ark housed God.

Who knows what happened to the Ark? The Ark was hidden or lost when the Babylonians destroyed the First Temple in 586 BCE, according to the Bible. Since many hypotheses and stories point to multiple sites, its exact location has long been unknown. It is said to be in historic Axum, Ethiopia.





10. Advanced Learning Buddy

  • TV Fact

Morgan Le Fay designed the Advanced Learning Buddy, a hope-granting brain training app. The user is distracted by a brain training game while focusing on a goal. Users do witchcraft rituals unwittingly after leveling up. Good or malignant, the software magnifies subconscious wishes.

Like magic, the app follows the Rule of Three. Anyone who uses the app gets their intents thrice returned, which can cause a magical backlash against harm-wishing users. The Librarians and Amy Meyer used the spell's power to strengthen their Farraday cage to stop users from wishing their competitors worse luck. App user Eve Baird requested an "even playing field" versus Morgan Le Fay. She could physically injure Morgan with the magic, a feat not achieved in millennia. The program later helps the Librarians and Flynn Carsen perform the equations for the magic to open a dimensional gateway to the abyss to find The Library.

11. Appointment book

  • TV Fact

The Library's Appointment Book records past librarians' upcoming engagements. Since the Library works on a time scale much greater than the human lifespan, the appointment book lets Librarians leave messages for future generations to continue their work.

Power:

Miraculous healing can cure all diseases and instantaneously heal any wound, regardless of severity.

Immortality:

Drinking enough Oil is claimed to make you eternal. The dosage is unknown.

Limitations

It cannot cure Excalibur-induced wounds, but it can save the drinker.

  • Fun Fact

There is no historical evidence or reference to "Bathsheba's Oil of Healing" in documented records or texts. Bathsheba is a figure from biblical narratives, known for her role in the story of King David. She was the wife of Uriah the Hittite, whom King David later had killed so he could marry her.




13. Blackbeard's Treasure Chest

  • TV Fact

A relic that Flynn Carsen discovered and brought to the library was Blackbeard's Treasure Chest.

  • Fun Fact

Blackbeard's treasure chest is a legendary aspect of the pirate lore surrounding Edward Teach, commonly known as Blackbeard, who was one of the most notorious pirates of the Caribbean during the early 18th century. Blackbeard's treasure chest symbolizes the vast wealth and treasures he amassed through piracy. However, no concrete historical evidence supports the existence of a single, specific treasure chest belonging to Blackbeard.

The legend of Blackbeard's treasure has been perpetuated through various tales and accounts of his exploits. According to legend, Blackbeard captured numerous ships and raided coastal towns, accumulating a vast fortune in gold, silver, jewels, and other valuable items. It's said that he buried or hid his treasure in various locations along the Eastern seaboard of North America, particularly in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and the Caribbean islands.

Despite numerous treasure hunters searching for Blackbeard's treasure over the years, no definitive evidence of its existence has ever been found. Many believe that the legend of Blackbeard's treasure chest is more symbolic of the allure and mystique surrounding piracy during the Golden Age of Piracy rather than an actual hoard waiting to be discovered.




14. Bleeding Crown of the Vampire Queen of Northampton

  • TV Fact

A parasitical relic known as the Bleeding Crown of the Vampire Queen of Northampton was used by Ambrose Gethic to drain a whole town of its youth; nevertheless, the crown was destroyed upon Gethic's defeat.

  • Fun Fact

"Bleeding Crown of the Vampire Queen of Northampton" blends mythology and fiction. Northampton, England, has a fascinating history, but no reputable source has described a vampire queen or a "bleeding crown" there.

In many cultures, vampires and their charmed possessions or symbols, such as crowns, are mythical. However, these tales are generally based on literature, folklore, or mythology rather than history.

Modern storytelling—fiction, role-playing, or otherwise—may have inspired the Bleeding Crown of the Vampire Queen of Northampton.




15. Book of Solomon

  • TV Fact

Solomon ruled with the Book of Solomon, a powerful spellbook. The Masons secured the mystery relic in King Solomon's Mine because it constituted a global threat.

History

Flynn and archaeologist Emily Davenport explored Africa for "Return to King Solomon's Mines" in 2006. Flynn then throws the book into a hot lava pit.

Powers

Reality Warping: The book's most powerful spells can change the past and future.

Supernatural Entity Manipulation: This book allows users to summon legions of specters as servants or allies in spells.

Showcase "The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines"

  • Fun Fact

Canonical and non-canonical works regarding King Solomon can be called the "Book of Solomon". Analysis of many "Book of Solomon" works:

Solomon wrote the Song of Songs, Ecclesiastes, and Proverbs, the three canonical Bible books. These Old Testament writings are revered by Islam, Judaism, and Christianity.

The Testament of Solomon, attributed to King Solomon, is not in the Bible. According to it, Solomon used demons to build the Temple in Jerusalem. Numerous Greek, Latin, and Slavonic manuscripts include Solomon's Testament.

The Key of Solomon or Clavicula Salomonis is a supposed medieval grimoire by King Solomon. Magical rituals, talismans, and spirit invocations are addressed. Lesser and Greater Keys comprise the Key of Solomon. Instead of ceremonial magic, the Lesser Key (Lemegeton) describes how to summon demons.

Septuagint, Greek Old Testament, Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christian canons, and Wisdom of Solomon are deuterocanonical. Canonical to neither Protestants nor Jews. Solomon's knowledge discusses knowledge, righteousness, and soul immortality.

These are just a few King Solomon quotations. Every "Book of Solomon" feels unique in content, value, and history.




16. Book of the Dead

  • TV Fact

Housed within The Library lies the enigmatic Book of the Dead.

Powers

The specifics of what it contained remain unknown, despite its appearance on the show. Considering Flynn believed it might hold the key to defeating Apep, it likely includes details on the malevolent Egyptian gods and demons.

Contemporary in Real Life

The ancient Egyptian writings known as the Book of the Dead described in detail the various hazards that existed in the Underworld and how a deceased person could pass safely into the afterlife.

  • Fun Fact

Egyptian funerary literature includes the Book of the Dead (Book of Coming Forth by Day) with incantations, prayers, and orders to guide the dead to heaven. Burial included Papyrus Scroll Book of the Dead. Writings were suggested for underworld survival and Osiris encounters. Book of the Dead magic and prayers helped the dead overcome obstacles, avoid harm, and live eternally. Books of the Dead suited to Egyptian beliefs and circumstances are found in tombs. Complex versions featured spells and images, while simpler versions had only the most crucial texts.

After painstaking investigation, scientists unearthed ancient Egyptian thoughts on death, the afterlife, and the soul in the Book of the Dead. Egyptian theology and spirituality make this relic one of the most important and fascinating.




17. Bracer of Agamemnon

  • TV Fact

On display in the Library's Antiquities Room is the Bracer of Agamemnon. When Ezekiel Jones sought to retrieve Zeus' lightning bolt, he utilized it alongside other relics to offer protection.

  • Fun Fact

Greek mythology revolves around Agamemnon and his Bracer, which is linked to the Trojan War. Agamemnon, king of Mycenae, led the Greeks into combat during the Trojan War. Legend has it that Agamemnon wore the Bracer of Agamemnon during the Trojan War and other missions. Metal armguards or wrist guards with intricate designs or symbols are protective. Bracers are often shown as possessing magical or divine capabilities. Some legends say wearing it grants superhuman strength, immunity to damage, or the ability to predict the future. Besides tradition and literature, the Bracer of Agamemnon is primarily a myth. It enhances Agamemnon and the Trojan War heroes' stories and remains captivating in Greek mythology.




18. Back Door

  • TV Fact

Located in the Annex, the Back Door is a teleportation mechanism that Jenkins invented. Although The Librarians intended to use a miniature, limited-edition version to flee the Bermuda Triangle, they ended up using them to rescue passengers from a downed plane. Without anyone else's help, Flynn traversed the Bermuda Triangle and managed to get away.

It may be attached to any door and used to move from the Annex to any area, even interdimensional ones like the Library or the Labyrinth.

Limitations:

The desired location must be close to an entrance.

There can't be any trembling or fast movement at the location.

Instead of locations, the door can now follow people, although: the portals wouldn't be solid and might vanish at any second;

The user must fasten a cherished item on one side of the door;

Nearby, the individual should keep another treasured possession;

Instead of transporting the user to their intended destination, the Door will take them to the item if they forget to bring it with them.

Within the Library, you can find the Cap of Invisibility, a piece of Ancient Greek art.

Powers

The Cap of Invisibility can make someone invisible, but it's not clear if infrared or other related technologies could not see them.

One famous example is Hades' helm, which made its wearer invisible. Cyclopes constructed this hat during the Titan-Olympian battle. Olympians divide war spoils after their win. Hades' share was the helm. This headgear let him walk below and above ground without being observed.

Perseus is a famous Hades and Helm story. To kill Medusa, the gods offered Perseus numerous gifts, including Hades' helm, which he used to approach her without turning stone.

Another Greek legend involving an unseen figure is the Ring of Gyges. When he flipped a magical ring inside out, Shepherd Gyges became invisible. This ring made Gyges invisible whenever he wanted. This let him commit several crimes without consequence.

- Chess Piece Conversation: Regular pieces move quietly. However, the Looking-Glass Kingdom Chess Set pieces always communicate. The pieces sing, dance, counsel, and critique their opponents.

Alice uses a Wonderland chessboard. Her quick brain and curiosity help her overcome the Mirror Lands' chess set's odd difficulties, meet intriguing individuals, and learn about this strange region. Alice learns bravery, invention, and mindpower from the Looking-Glass Kingdom's chessboard. Alice enjoys Wonderland's unpredictability and overcomes obstacles.





21. Clipping Book

  • TV Fact

The magical Clippings book records all the weird magical incidents around the planet. The Annex and Library clippings books are linked. Jenkins gave Cassandra Cillian, Ezekiel Jones, and Jacob Stone, Flynn Carsen's new Librarians, smaller clippings books as graduation gifts at the end of the first season.

Some of the smaller clippings books will record magical events that suit the owner's skills. Interesting information: 

- If too many magic-related occurrences happen quickly, it will catch fire.

24. The Crown of King Arthur

  • TV Fact

The Crown of King Arthur is the former crown of King Arthur. In the time before the Goths took over Camelot, the crown was hidden in Germany in a secret henge in the Black Forest. When Lamia and the Serpent Brotherhood later broke into the library, she took the crown. It showed up again in the episode "The Wrath of Chaos," where Jenkins put it on a pillow on a shelf.

  • Fun Fact

Medieval literature and folklore associate the Crown of King Arthur with King Arthur of Britain. Although there is no historical evidence for such a crown or King Arthur, the idea of him and his crown has enthralled people for centuries.
