In the book The Once and Future King by THWhite the author clearly shows what the important values and knowledge a king or leader must have Heshe must know what it is like to be in other situations with other points of view of life as Arthur was taught by Merlin when he was transformed into other animals Heshe must also know how to survive on their own and take control when they are lost as in when Arthur found his way back to the castle of Sir Ector with Cully He must also have a basic education more then the average follower or subject which Arthur was tutored by Merlin Book one shows the upbringing of Arthur preparing him to be a renowned ruler When Arthur was being taught by Merlin he was transformed into other animals with magic to learn the difference of lifestyles and to appreciate all that surrounds him His first adventure was when he was transfigured into a fish He swam through the moat around Sir Ectors castle and Merlin helped save another fish He was just beginning to see all that surrounded him and began to treasure everything encompassing him more Another landmark of his transformations was when he became a merlin and bonded with the other birds hearing all that they said and how they felt which most likely helped him in the future when he needed them to hunt and such This is similar to the preparation of our leaders although we dont have magic to transform into other animals we learn more about how others feel and react towards what we do Arthur and Kay went out with Cully when the bird was not ready to hunt yet and when they ended up losing the bird Arthur knew to take responsibility and stay with it until it calmed down He ended up getting lost in the forest and had to take care of himself
