Obie


The oldest daughter of Duke Lyppaut of Bearosche in Wolfram’s Parzival.

She was loved by King Meliant of Liz, Lyppaut’s sovereign lord, but rejected his affections. Meliant, enraged, declared war on Lyppaut and summoned many lords to assist him. Gawain arrived to fight for Lyppaut. He captured Meliant in battle and gave him to Obie’s younger sister, Obilot. Obilot, in turn, transferred Meliant to Obie’s command, giving Obie and Meliant a chance to reconcile. The war was ended and Obie and Meliant were engaged.

Obie’s counterpart in Heinrich von dem Türlin’s Diu Crône is named Flursensephin.
