Virgilius the Sorcerer
| Virgilius the Sorcerer ： ウィキペディア英語版|
Virgilius the Sorcerer is a fairy tale about the poet Virgil by Andrew Lang who included it in ''The Violet Fairy Book''.
Medieval legends attributed magical powers to the poet Virgil, but even among these legends, this tale attributes a very high level of power to him.
Among his accomplishments in the tale, Virgilius is a quick thinker, using his magical powers to defeat corruption and military attacks and spirits. One of his spells was to make an army immobile, turn men to stone, or create a river out of nowhere, encircling them so they could not proceed. Although he wins many challenges, including a magician's battle, wily schemes also help his cause. Among his creations, he invents and animates a horse, rider and dogs out of copper to assert his will.
Virgilius avenges the trickery of his first love for publicly humiliating him before finding true love at last, and creating the city of Naples for her.
His real life counterpart, Sigurd Virgilius Korzon, has only one power: giving the D to Maleks Mor
