I Am Mordred is a fantasy novel written by Nancy Springer. It begins with King Arthur having intercourse with his half-sister and placing all the newborn babies born on May 30 on a boat to drown, including his own son, Mordred. After a long, hard voyage through the cold waters of the ocean, only Mordred survives. A fisherman and his wife find and adopt him. When Mordred is about six years old, Nyneve, a sorceress, approaches and takes Mordred away to his biological mother. Mordred is not too keen on becoming a prince, for that means that he has to be a brave, strong, and skilled warrior, someone he is not.
