Repanse de Schoie

Repanse de Schoye

The Grail bearer in Wolfram’s Parzival.

She was the daughter of Frimutel, the sister of AnfortasTrevrizentSchoysiane, and Herzeloyde (Herselojde), and the aunt of Perceval.

As a maiden, Repanse had charge of the Grail and carried it in the Grail Procession. After Perceval became the Grail King, Repanse fell in love with Feirefiz, Perceval’s pie-bald half brother, at Arthur’s court. Repanse and Feirefiz married and moved to India, where they became the parents of Prester John.
