Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia


An evil warrior in Heinrich von dem Türlin’s Diu Crône.

His companion, Lohenis of Rahaz, stole Gawain’s horse. Ansgü, knowing that Gawain had replaced his warhorse with a nag, challenged him to a joust.

Gawain was victorious despite the disadvantage. Ansgü’s counterpart in Wolfram von Eschenbach’s Parzival is Florant of Itolac.
