I have a question. I don't want to say that this is a bad story, but doesn't making Merlin a good sword fighter make him a bit too overpowered in comparison to Arthur?
I mean, it disrupts the balance a bit. I'll explain: In the canon, Arthur is good with fighting, while Merlin is good with magic. That makes them both powerful. Also, Arthur has the authority, while Merlin has the 'wisdom for ruling' he tries to teach Arthur. While I don't particularly mind Merlin having authority as well (royal!Merlin is fun to read, after all), disrupting the fighting balance as well makes him some kind of superman, in that his flaws are almost non-existent. And with Merlin having only the 'noble' flaws, like self-sacrificing, I think this makes Arthur's good qualities redundant, making him kind of redundant as a whole, except for being surprised at the start.
Not that I don't like your story. It's a pretty nice take on Royal!Merlin. I like the explanation for him fleeing the kingdom being a curse. Also, I like the knights you added too.
