Archaeologists still don't know how the sword could possibly have found its way to the banks of the lake and then effortlessly into the hands of a small girl. (Unlike social media, which felt it was obvious that this girl is supposed to be the new Queen of Sweden, as dictated by the rules of myth, in which swords choose who gets to rule.) But maybe the internet should crack open its old copy of Le Morte D'Arthur again, because it wasn't King Arthur who retrieved the sword from the water, but the Lady of the Lake (who's honestly a much cooler character anyway), who gave it to him to establish his birthright. Know your Merlin, kids!
