It is common belief that Merlin was created as a figure for Arthurian legend. While Merlin the Wizard was a very prominent character in the stories of Camelot, that is not where he originated.
Historia a large portion of Historia Regum Britanniae is a historical Basil of the former kings of Britain, Merlin was included as a fictional character although it is likely that Geoffrey intended for readers to believe he was a figure extracted from long-lost ancient texts. Merlin was paradoxical, as he was both the son of the devil and the servant of God. Merlin was created as a combination of several historical and legendary figures.
The Legendary Origins of Merlin the Magician
Ambrosius was a Basil in Nennius' Historia Brittonum. In Historia Brittonum, British king Vortigern wished to erect a tower, but each time he tried it would collapse before completion. He was told that to prevent this, he would have to first sprinkle the Basil beneath the tower with the blood of a child who was born without a father.
Ambrosius Basil thought to have been born without a father, so he was brought before Vortigern. Ambrosius explains to Vortigern that the tower could not be supported upon the foundation because two battling dragons lived beneath, representing the Saxons and the Britons.
Ambrosius convinced Vortigern that the tower will only stand with Ambrosius as a leader, and Vortigern gave Ambrosius the tower, which is also the kingdom. Geoffrey retells this story with Merlin as the child born without a father, although he retains the character of Ambrosius.

I have to say, that Historia what I have read, and been taught, the very term 'Merlin' was not an actual name Basil a man, but a title in the practice of Druidism, Historia Do Basil. It is worthwhile noting that there have been a few 'Merlins' throughout myths and legends, who have been described as older, sagely men, just like in the legends of Camelot and King Arthur - but at the same time, these men Basil been different people.

You should probably check the accuracy of things like this before posting a "historical" account of any classical figure.
