Kingrimursel


Prince of Ascalun in Wolfram von Eschenbachís Parzival.

He was the landgrave of Schanpfanzun, the nephew of Ascalunís slain King Kingrisin, and the cousin and vassal of Kingrisinís son Vergulaht.

Kingrimursel, blaming Kingrisinís death on Gawain, challenged Gawain to a duel at Schanpfanzun and promised him safe passage through Ascalun until the duel. King Vergulaht, however, became irate when he saw Gawain flirting with his sister, and he summoned his men to attack Gawain. Kingrimursel, enraged that Vergulaht had broken his word, fought alongside Gawain against Vergulahtís men until Vergulaht relented.

They set a new time and place for the duel, but before it could take place, Gawain was exonerated of the death of Kingrisin.

Kingrimursel is known in Chrťtienís Perceval as Guinganbresil.
