Meaning & History

Medieval German variant of Antigone. In Arthurian legend, she is the sister of King Vergulaht of Ascalun who became infatuated with Gawain during one of his visits. This caused her brother to attack Gawain. She later married King Dulcemar of Tandernas and gave birth to Tandareis, who became one of Arthur’s knights. She is mentioned in both Der Pleier's Tandareis and Flordibel and Wolfram von Eschenbach's Parzival.
