Frians of Ponterteis

A boorish and treacherous prince of Punterteis (Punturteis) in Der Pleier’s Garel von dem blühenden Tal.

He was apparently once involved in the theft of Gawaine’s horse. He could have freed Duke Eskilabon of Belamunt from an obligation to guard a garden, but did not keep his word.

Der Pleier may have taken his name from Wolfram’s Friam, although the theft of Gringolet to which he alludes is committed in Wolfram by Urjans.
