Arthur/Gwen is the het pairing of Arthur Pendragon and Gwen in Merlin fandom. They have a canonical relationship.

Canon

Gwen and Arthur are a canonical couple in the show Merlin, meeting in the first series and marrying at the end of the fourth. Their relationship mirrors the original legends, but the casting of Gwen as a servant instead of a noble adds class conflict.

Fandom

Arthur/Gwen is the fandom's second most popular pairing, after Merlin/Arthur, and the most popular het pairing, though like many canonical het pairings it is often a background pairing in works focused on a non-canonical pairing
