Li Gweiz Prelljus

In Wolfram’s Parzival, a ford on the river Sabins in the land of King Gramoflanz.

At the behest of Duchess Orgeluse of Logres (Orguelleuse), whom he loved, Gawain went to Li Gweiz Prelljus and took a garland from one of Gramoflanz’s trees, sparking a feud between the two knights.

The name of the ford is a corruption of le Gué Perellous, or the Perilous Ford, found in Chrétien de Troyes’s Perceval.
