Enhygeus, Enhyngnes, Enigeus, Ennigeus, Enyseus, Haningnes, Havingues

Sister of Joseph of Arimathea, wife of Brons (Bron) and mother of Alain, Joshua, Nascien, Sador, Naburzadan, and several other sons.

Enygeus and Bron accompanied Joseph on his journey from Judea to western lands, eventually arriving in Britain.

Her descendants were the Grail Kings. In a brief interpolated ending to one manuscript of the First Continuation of Perceval, she is named as the wife – rather than the mother – of Alain, and as the mother of Perceval.
