rovereHere is a reenactment of folks in my family tree. Here is the real Game of Thrones.

My kindred, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor is in the Peerage as are those closely related to her. Burke’s Peerage, for the time being, does not pursue the genealogy of Elizabeth Mary Rosemond, Liz’s grandmother, to all the Rosamonds, including my mother Rosemary Rosamond, and my sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, whose marriage to Garth Benton put us in the Preston family tree that has ties to the Stewarts, and thus Kate and William Windsor who gave birth to a baby boy yesterday. This royal child is yet to have been given a name.

What I hear, is that Kate wants her son to be named Arthur, and William wants George. There was an argument between the parents of John the Bpatist as to how their son will be named. Nazarite priests are present. I believe they asked the eight old infant what name he preferred.

I am kin to Baby Cambridge via the Bronkhorst, Montfoort, and Roesmonts, who were Swan Brethren. William Windsor is kin to the House of Kleve and the Swan Legends. Arnold de Rode (red) is kin to us all. I have associated him with the Red Knight, who brings a challenge to the Round Table. Let us summon the Rouge and Swan Knights who will ask the child how he will be called, for the Swan Knight is the guardian of secret names, and a mysterious lineage.

Above is the oldest surviving Dutch painting depicting my Roover kindred as Knights of the Swan. Four generations are ushered in by Saint George to behold Our Sweet Lady and her new born baby. May this child know the protection of the Swan Knight and his Swan Brethren.

The Rosemonts were the Lords of Wolfswinkle house and our cote of arms was a dancing wolf.

“Kinderen/Children ;1: Hilla Henricx {Roesmont van Rode} Roesmont
(*/+)M : Rudolph Godsclack Roesmont”

Today, August 7, 2007, I found the castle of the Rosemont/Rode
family. Through the mists of time, the Red Knight has come home.

Arnold graaf van had three sons, Ghijsbert van Rode, and Roelof
(Rover) van Rode, and Hendrick van Rode. There is a Horst castle that
was once called ‘castellum Rode’. This is the Rosemont family. Rode
means “red” Ghijsbert was a ridder, a knight. Here is a real Red
Knight that appear in Arthurian legends. This family has intermarried
for several generations, they passing down the same names.

Ghisburtus van Roesmont was a Dutch nobleman of some importance. His
mother was jonkvrouw Adriana Theodorici ROVER. the daughter of Dirk
Edmondszn ROOVER. The Roover family appears to descend from one of
the Radbot rulers of Holland who was given the name Roover, or Rover
due to conquest of the Netherlands. The Roover family would build
Montfoort castle one of the most prestigious castles in Holland.
These two families were keen on forming a marriage alliance as Arnold
Rover married Heilwigis Arnoldi Danielis ROESMONT. For this reason I
suspect the Roesmont Wolf names came from Roelof the Roover R +
Odilia van Montfoort. Perhaps the Roovers owned Wolfhouse where the
Roesmonts came to live in 1450. Ghisburtus was the master of Saint
Janskerk, and a member of Lieve-Vrouwe-broederschap that met in
Janskerk church. Hieronymus Bosch was a member of the Zwanenbroeders
(swan brothers) and was commissioned by the master of Janskerk to do
a stained-glass window for the church.

I am going to visit my daughter and grandson my family who appear out
of nowhere. I have taken on powerful people, and I have prevailed.

On the plain outside Camelot, Percival found the Red Knight waiting.
Percival asked, “Are you the Knight who would dare insult the Queen?”

“I am,” answered the other. “Are you prepared to undertake the
Challenge of the Red Knight?”
“I am,” said Percival, and he lowered the visor of his helm. Then the
two knights rode at one another as fast as they could, and they met
together with such violence that the Percival’s lance broke against
the Red Knight’s shield, and they were both knocked from their
horses.
Sir Percival rose to find that the Red Knight’s armor had been
pierced in the side, so that blood flowed from the wound. As Percival
struggled to regain his senses, he saw the Red Knight mount his
horse, snatch up his lance, and ride off into the forest. Percival
climbed onto his own horse to pursue the Red Knight.

“What of the Red Knight? Why did he take the Chalice and insult the
Queen?”
“The Red Knight was sent to Camelot,” said his aunt, “for the same
reason that the Chalice was sent, and that was to discover a Knight
of Arthur’s Round Table who was worthy to take the place of the
Guardian of the Red Chapel, who has grown too old to perform all his
duties.”

Gijsbert I, 1127-1140
Lord of Bronckhorst and Rekem
Adam the Brunckhorst
The first lord of Bronckhorst occurs around 1127/31 in the sources.
To be name is Adam the Brunchorst. The oorkonde in which he is called
is supposedly false. He is getuige at the donation of earl Gerhard II
of yellow of the vault of Ellekom to the church in Zutphen. If the
witness range in the false oorkonde is also falsified ongewis are. In
commonly can said become that the witness ranges, also at false of
the, however, to be correct. This to make counterfeiting more
credible.The name just again prevents ‘ Adam ‘ in 1218 in the
achterhoek, but then at Mr Van Den Berghor Adam van Bronckhorst,
provided that he has existed, blood links have Bergh with Adam I of
pine remain provisionally an intriguing question.

‘ Van Radekeim ‘

The next lord of Bronckhorst who becomes around this time is called
Gijsbert (I). In 1140 he occurs again, with a brother unknown of name
(Adam?). Gijsbert I have a sister who Ermgard are called and they
founds a convent in Rekem.It is remarkable that he does not prevent
Bronckhorst with its ‘ surname ‘, but with the additive ‘ Radekeim ‘.
Van Schilfgaarde sees it northern of Maastricht Rekem lain (Belgian
limburg). The name ‘ Giselbert ‘ has been here possibly guiding,
because around the Meuse this name is not unknown. All Giselberten
pretend of Giselbert, the first duke of destiny herrings descend.
Another, more gelderse, possibility are Renkum.In the advantage of
Van Schilfgaarde the weapon shield of Rekem speaks; a lion of throat
on a field of gold. The weapon of Bronckhorst is here a slightly
modified implementation of.According to some authors marries Gijsbert
I with Heylwiva, for the of Arnold II of red and Aleydis van Kuyc.
From recent research becomes clear that she has married with Koenraad
of Merum. This excludes an more earlier, or later, marriage with
Gijsbert I of course, but does not put this on more loose
propellers.Gijsbert I and are spouse as yet unknown get in literature
two zonen: Gijsbert (II) and Willem (I). Here too its question signs
because to place, both zonen prevention just in 1190 in the sources.
In any case Gijsbert I become considered as a tribe father of the
slaughtered Bronckhorst, also already the generation seems be after
Gijsbert I ‘ missing ‘. Its alleged zoon Willem I succeed him as a
lord of Bronckhorst.

Occasional bijkomstigheden
The study of birds into the county red has two striking
bijkomstigheden. The first that is notable is that the brother of
Arnold II of red Gijsbert (I) is called. These Gijsbert I of red die
in 1146. birds suspect that Arnold I of red, the father of Arnold II
and Gijsbert have married I, two times. The first time with Heylwiva
of Walbeck and the second time with Heilwig van Kuyc. The two called
brothers tribes from the first marriage. The made connection with
Walbeck, plausible by birds, carries a second bijkomstigheid. He
considers Heylwiva as for the of Siegfried of Walbeck and Guda van
Valkenburg.Changing towards the research of Verdonk appears that Guda
supposedly for the is of Rupert I and Irmintrud. He places Irmintrud
in Rees-Aspel the family because of some donations in rose. jacket
man considers Irmintrud as for the of Liudolf van Zutphen. Its
bezitingen in rose its possibly originating from the Zutphense
inheritance, by means of the same mechanism on which Godschalk (I)
earl in for the becomes. Acting Rupert I (or his gelijknamige zoon?)
as ‘ Routpertus ‘ in 1059 if it has been then motivated getuige for
Godschalk (I) in the matter around the Lochemse tenths by the family
link. Is it now too far strained suspect that Bronckhorst have been
given as a giftgift gift to Irmintrud?At this scenario, however, some
marginal comments are place. The name prevents Giselbert/Gijsbert
more often, for example in grafelijke the families of Duras and Looz.
Also it is the question if the lords of Rekem are the same as the
lords of red. An indication can be that the first lord of Rekem who
becomes in 1108 mentioned Arnold is called. Moreover do not dive in
first half of the 12th century some more closely indicated
Giselberten in the sources, for example Giselbert ‘ with the ugly
head ‘ in 1131. it conduct as yet too far to that claim Gijsbert I of
red the same person are such as are generatiegenoot Gijsbert I of
Bronckhorst. For that the relations are too uncertain.

Freehold possession
The disappeared castle Bronckhorst is according to the Monté far
Loren a freehold good. He infers this from the fact that a leengoed
prevents Bronkhorst nowhere in the sources and that ‘ wear ‘ is from
(possibly gelders) a leengoed to its own good on the pavement of the
earl of yellow and Zutphen not terrible plausible. The heerlijkheid
exists only from a small area around the castle and the city
Bronkhorst.The surrounding Steenderen form a separate county and on
the other hand Bronckhorst are limited by the IJssel. Appears that
the borders of the heerlijkheid do not reach Bronckhorst far.It is
striking that the earl of yellow in 1349 recognises that the lord of
Bronckhorst administers the high justice in its heerlijkheid. This
concerns possibly an affirmative of a situation already existing.
That would mean that the earl of yellow there none control has and
that in other words Bronckhorst ‘ foreign country ‘ is for him. When
Bronckhorst acquire this ‘ status separate ‘ is unknown.The
conception of the Monté far Loren do not contradict the above
scenario to that Bronckhorst already asked of Zutphen have been split
off.
Given in pine jair our lords, one ende XCIX do screeff MCM dach nasty
saint Martinus that were on at four tenths of dach of the maent van

Gijsbert V leave behind a widow and seven children. Its youngest zoon
Dirk gets Batenburg. As from now this branch will keep Batenburg in
possession and by living go as bronckhorst batenburg. Dirk become the
tribe father of a new line and acquire a lot of property, of which
most known the, however, heerlijkheid Anholt (Germany) is.Gijbert V’s
oldest zoon Willem IV succeed him as a lord of Bronckhorst. Willem IV
will man several high posts, such as Council of the duke

Noble families without a title
Nobles without a title can call themselves Écuyer (French for Shield
bearer) or Jonkheer (Dutch, literally meaning ‘Young Lord’). The
female equivalent of ‘Jonkheer’ is ‘Jonkvrouw’. ‘Ecuyer’ however has
no female equivalent. The titles ‘Jonkheer’ and ‘Jonkvrouw’ are
roughly equivalent in meaning to “Sir” or “Dame”, but not a common
translation. ‘Écuyer’ is equivalent to “esquire” except that the
latter may be used for any Englishman.
There are thousands of untitled nobles in Belgium:

Le Serpent Rouge” and other “prieure documents” maintain that in
fact, France already had a far older N-S meridian known as
the “roseline,” and that all Colbert and Cassini did was move it to
the wrong place. This roseline or “serpent rouge” seems to have run
through several hermetic churches in France, including St. Sulpice in
Paris, the Lady of the Roses cathedral in Rodez, St. Vincent’s in
Carcasonne, and the Church of St. Stephen’s in Bourges. Most
importantly, it also ran through Rennes-les-Bains, whose name itself
comes from Rhedae or Rhodos, meaning “roses”. A more romantic line
used for its time-telling, geomantic, religious significance was
replaced with a much more staid line for travel and commerce.

Arnold I van Rode woonde op zijn burcht in Sint-Oedenrode. Hij was in
de eerste plaats een regionale grootgrondbezitter die door de keizer
van het Heilige Roomse Rijk belast was met de uitoefening van
grafelijke rechten in de streek, die later bekend werd onder de
benaming van het graafschap Rode. Bisschop Burchard verdeelt
09.08.1108 een landgoed tussen Lek en Linge waarover de kapittels van
St. Maarten en St. Bonifacius lange tijd met Arnoud van Rode en
Hendrik van Cuyk in geschil zijn geweest. Arnoud trouwde verm. (2)
voor 1096 met [Heilwich] van Cuyk, ovl. 1129/33. Deze hypothetische
Heilwich van Cuyk moet betrokken zijn geweest bij de stichting van de
abdij Mariënweerd door haar vermoedelijke schoonzuster Alveradis van

chapters of Saint at and Saint Bonifacius for a long time with Arnoud

From that appears that the leuvense families did not escape, also of
Rodes, during the crusades their responsibility. For the nobility the
consequences disastrous, on the chapters, frosts were and abbeys
brought with them wealth (see Verhoeven, p. 301). The affinity
between the family red or of red with horst and Sint-Pieters-Rode
appears as a matter of fact still from next document, are related to
the zoon of Arnold, Goswin called. These confirm, as it happens, that
its father, Arnold has ceded, for the church of red a piece meadow
that he had lain in leen of the duke hendrik, at the blue mill and ‘
Vredebroeck ‘ called. These place are now still this way called on
the land register plans. This meadow was made freehold for the
benefit of the church, to found a season after the death of Arnoldus
and its spouse to dedicate. From this certificate we also know the
second woman of Arnoldus, father of Goswin: it was Machtildis. The 17
centuries document mention that the first park being appropriate ear
of Sint-Pieters-Rode were hendrik red, brother of Goswin. We made
above indication of the second woman of Arnold, Mechtildis. This
infers we from a certificate of 1222 in which appears that the zoon
cannot resist itself, born from its first marriage, against in
onderpand to give of hunger-named after tenths and begevingsrecht of
the church too red. We have not found the name of the first spouse
however. From the two marriages of Arnold of red, at least three

The settlement thrived and became an important place in the region.
Sint-Oedenrode was granted city status in 1232 by the Duke of Brabant
(at that time Hendrik I of Brabant). This promoted Sint-Oedenrode to
the capital of the Peel (the name of the region in North Brabant).

While generally acting as a lonely knight, Johan has – on occasions –
settled down. For a while, together with Lancelot, he was one of the
Knights of the Round Table serving under King Arthur, until the
king’s death in De laatste droom (one of Vandersteen’s final comics
in this series). Later on, King Arthur would be ‘revived’ by
Biddeloo. Also, Johan stayed at the Castle of Horst for a while,
which served as his ‘birthplace’ and changed the meaning of “Rode”
completely, as Johan turned out to be a member of the family of the
Lords of Rode, which gave his name a dual meaning, the Red Knight and
the Rode Knight, as in the Knight from Rode.

Red Knight

Red Knight is a title borne by several characters in Arthurian

King Arthur and is killed by the protagonist Perceval, who wears his
armor and comes to be known as the Red Knight himself. In Wolfram von
Eschenbach’s Parzival, a retelling of Chrétien, the Red Knight is
identified as Sir Ither, and is a cousin to both Arthur and Parzival.
Two further Red Knights appear in the tale of Gareth in Sir Thomas
Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur. The first is named Sir Perimones, who,
like his three brothers the Black Knight, the Green Knight (distinct
from the character in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight), and Sir
Persant of Inde, is bested by the young Gareth. After these initial
trials Gareth must face the Red Knight of the Red Launds, whose real
name is Sir Ironside. Ironside has the strength of seven men and has
trapped the princess of Lyonesse in a tower from which Gareth must
save her. Though he had demonstrated a cruel and sadistic nature,
Ironside is brought around and even made a Knight of the Round Table.
Furthermore, Gawain is also known as the Red Knight for a brief time
in Perlesvaus, and Galahad is called by this name in the Lancelot-
Grail cycle.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knight_of_the_Swan

The story of the Knight of the Swan, or Swan Knight, is a medieval tale about a mysterious rescuer who comes in a swan-drawn boat to defend a damsel, his only condition being that he must never be asked his name.

At a later time, the swan knight Loherangrin was incorporated by the German poet Wolfram von Eschenbach into his Arthurian epic Parzival. A German text, written by Konrad von Würzburg in 1257, also featured a Swan Knight without a name. Wolfram’s, Konrad’s were used to construct the libretto for Richard Wagner’s opera Lohengrin.[2]

The “Swan-Children” appears to have been originally separate from the Godfrey cycle and the Swan Knight story generally.[3] Paris identifies four groups of variants, which he classifies usually by the name of the mother of the swan children.[4]

In the early 13th century, the German poet Wolfram von Eschenbach adapted the Swan Knight motif for his epic Parzival. Here the story is attached to Loherangrin, the son of the protagonist Parzival and the queen of Pelapeire Condwiramurs. As in other versions Loherangrin is a knight who arrives in a swan-pulled boat to defend a lady, in this case Elsa of Brabant. They marry, but he must leave when she breaks the taboo of asking his name.

The first is likely the Red Knight of the Forest of Quinqeroi in Chrétien de Troyes’ Perceval, the Story of the Grail; he steals a cup from King Arthur and is killed by the protagonist Perceval, who wears his armor and comes to be known as the Red Knight himself. In Wolfram von Eschenbach’s Parzival, a retelling of Chrétien, the Red Knight is identified as Sir Ither, the Red Knight of Kukumerlant, a cousin to both Arthur and Parzival. He is killed by Sir Gawain.
Two other Red Knights appear in the tale of Gareth in Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur. The first is named Sir Perimones and is also known as “The Puce Knight”, who, like his three brothers the Black Knight, the “Green Knight” (distinct from the character in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight), and Sir Persant of Inde “The Blue Knight, is bested by the young Gareth. After these initial trials Gareth must face the Red Knight of the Red Launds, whose real name is Sir Ironside. Ironside has the strength of seven men and has trapped the princess of Lyonesse in a tower from which Gareth must save her. Though he had demonstrated a cruel and sadistic nature, Ironside is brought around and even made a Knight of the Round Table.
Furthermore, Gawain is also known as the Red Knight for a brief time in Perlesvaus, and Galahad is called by this name in the Lancelot-Grail cycle. In Chrétien de Troyes’ story Yvain, the Knight of the Lion, the red knight Esclados guards a mystical fountain, and is defeated by Ywain.

The Challenge of the Red Knight

This is the tale of the Challenge of the Red Knight. It is an ancient
tale, and I pray my telling of it be pleasing to all.
Long ago, when Arthur held his Court at Camelot, the Knights of the
Round Table were gathered to celebrate the Autumnal Equinox. As was
the custom at the time, many toasts were made, each Knight and Great
Baron lifting a golden goblet filled with late summer cider. The
Ladies of the Court too made salutes to their Lords, boasting of
their feats in the last year.
Now earlier that day, a fair damsel had appeared in the Court and
presented Queen Guenivere with a beautiful golden goblet, which the
Queen accepted graciously. And just as the Queen rose from her throne
to raise the traditional salutation to the King, the doors of the
great hall were flung open, and in came a Knight clad all in red
armor and carrying a golden-tipped spear.
Sir Kay the Seneschal stood and demanded to know who this Knight was
that made such an entrance into the Pendragon’s Hall unannounced. But
the Red Knight would not reply. Instead with bold strides he stepped
to where Queen Guenivere stood, stole away her golden goblet, and
splashed the cider upon her gown.
Before anyone could make a protest, a loud voice boomed from within
the red helm: “Let any who would avenge this act, accept my
Challenge. Meet me on the field of combat outside this castle, armed
and prepared for battle.”
Without another word, the Red Knight turned and stomped from the
hall. The stunned silence which followed the Red Knight’s departure
was short-lived. Soon all the Knights of the Round Table were
clamoring for the right to pursue the Red Knight, and the Pendragon
granted that the first knight who was armed and prepared would have
his blessing to accept the Challenge.
Now as it happened, there was one knight who was not in the Great
Hall at this time. Sir Percival de Galles had been detained by an
adventure, and he returned to find Camelot in an uproar of activity,
as each knight scrambled with his arms. When Percival learned of the
reason for their haste, he quickly turned his horse again out of the
castle, for he was still armed.
On the plain outside Camelot, Percival found the Red Knight waiting.
Percival asked, “Are you the Knight who would dare insult the Queen?”

“I am,” answered the other. “Are you prepared to undertake the
Challenge of the Red Knight?”
“I am,” said Percival, and he lowered the visor of his helm. Then the
two knights rode at one another as fast as they could, and they met
together with such violence that the Percival’s lance broke against
the Red Knight’s shield, and they were both knocked from their
horses.
Sir Percival rose to find that the Red Knight’s armor had been
pierced in the side, so that blood flowed from the wound. As Percival
struggled to regain his senses, he saw the Red Knight mount his
horse, snatch up his lance, and ride off into the forest. Percival
climbed onto his own horse to pursue the Red Knight.

As he entered the forest, an Autumn storm began, and soon Percival
lost the Red Knight’s trail. All day Percival rode through the wood,
hoping to find some sign of his foe. As evening drew near, the icy
rain grew worse, and Percival began to seek shelter.

He came to a wide clearing, and in a bright flash of lightning, he
saw a small, ruined chapel on the far side. From the look of the
tumbled red stones and sagging roof, Percival thought the chapel must
be abandoned. He spurred his horse forward and into the Red Chapel.

Within, Percival found that a single candle burned near a window on
the back wall, and by its light he could see that on the altar was
laying an ancient, unarmored man, blood flowing freely from his side.
Leaning against the wall behind the altar was a lance, which Percival
recognized at once as that of the Red Knight.

Before Percival could wonder about these things, or even dismount his
horse, he heard a sudden wailing, as though dozens of voices were
calling out mournfully. Then there entered into the Chapel a damsel
of such beauty that Percival was pleased to lay his eyes upon her.
She carried in her hands an object from which shone a light so
dazzling that Percival could not look upon it.
The maiden passed before the altar, then turned to face Percival
expectantly, but he was so in awe of what he had seen that he was
speechless. The maiden appeared downcast as she turned again to the
altar.

Before Percival could recover himself, a mysterious hand came through
the window and extinguished the candle, plunging the Chapel into
darkness. This startled Percival’s horse, so that it turned and
leaped from the Chapel, carrying the knight back out to the storm.
It took an hour or more for Percival to calm his horse. By then the
storm had abated, but Percival could not find his way back to the Red
Chapel. Instead he rode through the night, until at sunrise he came
upon a small castle by a wide river. Cold, hungry, and exhausted, he
called to the porter to ask for shelter, but there was no answer. So
in desperation, Percival dismounted his horse and began pounding upon
the door with the hilt of his sword.

Suddenly the door was thrown open and a woman in leather armor burst
out, sword drawn. She swung at him with such speed that he was barely
able to raise his shield. Then the woman struck such a blow that his
helm broke into two and fell to the ground.

After that, Percival yielded and begged mercy, and when the woman saw
his face, she asked to know his name. “I am Percival de Galles,” he
said, “Knight of the Round Table.” “And who is your father?” she
asked.
“That I do not know,” Percival admitted with some shame, “for my
mother raised me alone in the wilderness, far from the realm of
knights.”
“There is something I must tell you,” she said, putting up her
sword. “I knew your father well, for he was my own brother, and
therefore I am your aunt.”

So then his aunt offered to train Percival in the arts of combat and
warfare, which he gladly accepted, for she was obviously a great
warrior. For months he studied with her, and she taught him not only
the methods of fighting, but also about the spiritual history of
Britain.
She told him about the Maidens of the Wells, and how they had
withdrawn to secret places throughout the land. When Percival heard
about secret chapels hidden in the wild places of Britain, he asked
his aunt if the Red Chapel he had visited might be such a place.
“It is indeed,” she said. “The woman you saw there is one of the
Maidens of the Wells, and that is not all. For you see, she is also
your sister, Dindrane.”

“What of the object she carried?” asked Percival. “The object which
glowed with such light that I could not look upon it. What is that
object?”
“That object is a Grail Hallow, one of the Chalices which have been
hidden from the world since the times of King Amanagons.”
“What is it’s purpose? Whom does it serve?”
At this, his aunt smiled. “The Chalice is a sacred object, central to
the Mysteries of the Grail. It is the same Chalice which was sent to
Camelot, and the same Chalice which was taken by the Red Knight.”
“What of the Red Knight? Why did he take the Chalice and insult the
Queen?”
“The Red Knight was sent to Camelot,” said his aunt, “for the same
reason that the Chalice was sent, and that was to discover a Knight
of Arthur’s Round Table who was worthy to take the place of the
Guardian of the Red Chapel, who has grown too old to perform all his
duties.”
His aunt then told Percival that he had already passed the first of
the tests, for he had inquired concerning the Grail Hallow. Now, if
he wished, she would direct him to the Red Chapel, so that he might
begin his training as a Chaplain. This pleased Percival, for he knew
that becoming a Grail Chaplain was a very noble occupation.

So it was that Percival returned to the Red Chapel, where he found
that the Red Knight had recovered from the wound which Percival had
inflicted upon him. Percival’s sister, Dindrane, was there also, and
she was very happy to learn that he had agreed to become the new
Guardian of the Red Chapel and Chaplain of the Holy Grail.

After that, Percival stayed at the Red Chapel and studied the
Mysteries of the Grail. And when the time came, he stood before the
Red Knight and was consecrated as a Knight-Chaplain of the Grail. He
was given the Red Knight’s own armor as a sign of his commitment to
the spiritual guardianship of the Red Chapel. Then he returned to
Camelot and engaged in various quests and adventures. But he also
came often to the Red Chapel to assist the Red knight in his duties.
And when the Red Knight died of very old age, Percival took his place
permanently as Guardian of the Red Chapel.

Here ends the tale of Sir Percival and the Challenge of the Red
Knight. May his Blessed Spirit be pleased with my telling of it, and
may my ancestors smile upon me, now as ever.

Arnoulfus red 1096 eze were as a witness present at acquiring the

From that appears that the leuvense families did not escape, also of
Rodes, during the crusades their responsibility. For the nobility the
consequences disastrous, on the chapters, frosts were and abbeys
brought with them wealth (see Verhoeven, p. 301). The affinity
between the family red or of red with horst and Sint-Pieters-Rode
appears as a matter of fact still from next document, are related to
the zoon of Arnold, Goswin called. These confirm, as it happens, that
its father, Arnold has ceded, for the church of red a piece meadow
that he had lain in leen of the duke hendrik, at the blue mill and ‘
Vredebroeck ‘ called. These place are now still this way called on
the land register plans. This meadow was made freehold for the
benefit of the church, to found a season after the death of Arnoldus
and its spouse to dedicate. From this certificate we also know the
second woman of Arnoldus, father of Goswin: it was Machtildis. The 17
centuries document mention that the first park being appropriate ear
of Sint-Pieters-Rode were hendrik red, brother of Goswin. We made
above indication of the second woman of Arnold, Mechtildis. This
infers we from a certificate of 1222 in which appears that the zoon
cannot resist itself, born from its first marriage, against in

however. From the two marriages of Arnold of red, at least three

save her. Though he had demonstrated a cruel and sadistic nature,
Ironside is brought around and even made a Knight of the Round Table.
Furthermore, Gawain is also known as the Red Knight for a brief time
in Perlesvaus, and Galahad is called by this name in the Lancelot-
Grail cycle.

The Challenge of the Red Knight

This is the tale of the Challenge of the Red Knight. It is an ancient
tale, and I pray my telling of it be pleasing to all.
Long ago, when Arthur held his Court at Camelot, the Knights of the
Round Table were gathered to celebrate the Autumnal Equinox. As was
the custom at the time, many toasts were made, each Knight and Great
Baron lifting a golden goblet filled with late summer cider. The
Ladies of the Court too made salutes to their Lords, boasting of
their feats in the last year.
Now earlier that day, a fair damsel had appeared in the Court and
presented Queen Guenivere with a beautiful golden goblet, which the
Queen accepted graciously. And just as the Queen rose from her throne
to raise the traditional salutation to the King, the doors of the
great hall were flung open, and in came a Knight clad all in red
armor and carrying a golden-tipped spear.
Sir Kay the Seneschal stood and demanded to know who this Knight was
that made such an entrance into the Pendragon’s Hall unannounced. But
the Red Knight would not reply. Instead with bold strides he stepped
to where Queen Guenivere stood, stole away her golden goblet, and
splashed the cider upon her gown.
Before anyone could make a protest, a loud voice boomed from within
the red helm: “Let any who would avenge this act, accept my
Challenge. Meet me on the field of combat outside this castle, armed
and prepared for battle.”
Without another word, the Red Knight turned and stomped from the
hall. The stunned silence which followed the Red Knight’s departure
was short-lived. Soon all the Knights of the Round Table were
clamoring for the right to pursue the Red Knight, and the Pendragon
granted that the first knight who was armed and prepared would have
his blessing to accept the Challenge.
Now as it happened, there was one knight who was not in the Great
Hall at this time. Sir Percival de Galles had been detained by an
adventure, and he returned to find Camelot in an uproar of activity,
as each knight scrambled with his arms. When Percival learned of the
reason for their haste, he quickly turned his horse again out of the
castle, for he was still armed.
On the plain outside Camelot, Percival found the Red Knight waiting.
Percival asked, “Are you the Knight who would dare insult the Queen?”
“I am,” answered the other. “Are you prepared to undertake the
Challenge of the Red Knight?”
“I am,” said Percival, and he lowered the visor of his helm. Then the
two knights rode at one another as fast as they could, and they met
together with such violence that the Percival’s lance broke against
the Red Knight’s shield, and they were both knocked from their
horses.
Sir Percival rose to find that the Red Knight’s armor had been
pierced in the side, so that blood flowed from the wound. As Percival
struggled to regain his senses, he saw the Red Knight mount his
horse, snatch up his lance, and ride off into the forest. Percival
climbed onto his own horse to pursue the Red Knight.
As he entered the forest, an Autumn storm began, and soon Percival
lost the Red Knight’s trail. All day Percival rode through the wood,
hoping to find some sign of his foe. As evening drew near, the icy
rain grew worse, and Percival began to seek shelter.
He came to a wide clearing, and in a bright flash of lightning, he
saw a small, ruined chapel on the far side. From the look of the
tumbled red stones and sagging roof, Percival thought the chapel must
be abandoned. He spurred his horse forward and into the Red Chapel.
Within, Percival found that a single candle burned near a window on
the back wall, and by its light he could see that on the altar was
laying an ancient, unarmored man, blood flowing freely from his side.
Leaning against the wall behind the altar was a lance, which Percival
recognized at once as that of the Red Knight.
Before Percival could wonder about these things, or even dismount his
horse, he heard a sudden wailing, as though dozens of voices were
calling out mournfully. Then there entered into the Chapel a damsel
of such beauty that Percival was pleased to lay his eyes upon her.
She carried in her hands an object from which shone a light so
dazzling that Percival could not look upon it.
The maiden passed before the altar, then turned to face Percival
expectantly, but he was so in awe of what he had seen that he was
speechless. The maiden appeared downcast as she turned again to the
altar.
Before Percival could recover himself, a mysterious hand came through
the window and extinguished the candle, plunging the Chapel into
darkness. This startled Percival’s horse, so that it turned and
leaped from the Chapel, carrying the knight back out to the storm.
It took an hour or more for Percival to calm his horse. By then the
storm had abated, but Percival could not find his way back to the Red
Chapel. Instead he rode through the night, until at sunrise he came
upon a small castle by a wide river. Cold, hungry, and exhausted, he
called to the porter to ask for shelter, but there was no answer. So
in desperation, Percival dismounted his horse and began pounding upon
the door with the hilt of his sword.
Suddenly the door was thrown open and a woman in leather armor burst
out, sword drawn. She swung at him with such speed that he was barely
able to raise his shield. Then the woman struck such a blow that his
helm broke into two and fell to the ground.
After that, Percival yielded and begged mercy, and when the woman saw
his face, she asked to know his name. “I am Percival de Galles,” he
said, “Knight of the Round Table.” “And who is your father?” she
asked.
“That I do not know,” Percival admitted with some shame, “for my
mother raised me alone in the wilderness, far from the realm of
knights.”
“There is something I must tell you,” she said, putting up her
sword. “I knew your father well, for he was my own brother, and
therefore I am your aunt.”
So then his aunt offered to train Percival in the arts of combat and
warfare, which he gladly accepted, for she was obviously a great
warrior. For months he studied with her, and she taught him not only
the methods of fighting, but also about the spiritual history of
Britain.
She told him about the Maidens of the Wells, and how they had
withdrawn to secret places throughout the land. When Percival heard
about secret chapels hidden in the wild places of Britain, he asked
his aunt if the Red Chapel he had visited might be such a place.
“It is indeed,” she said. “The woman you saw there is one of the
Maidens of the Wells, and that is not all. For you see, she is also
your sister, Dindrane.”
“What of the object she carried?” asked Percival. “The object which
glowed with such light that I could not look upon it. What is that
object?”
“That object is a Grail Hallow, one of the Chalices which have been
hidden from the world since the times of King Amanagons.”
“What is it’s purpose? Whom does it serve?”
At this, his aunt smiled. “The Chalice is a sacred object, central to
the Mysteries of the Grail. It is the same Chalice which was sent to
Camelot, and the same Chalice which was taken by the Red Knight.”
“What of the Red Knight? Why did he take the Chalice and insult the
Queen?”
“The Red Knight was sent to Camelot,” said his aunt, “for the same
reason that the Chalice was sent, and that was to discover a Knight
of Arthur’s Round Table who was worthy to take the place of the
Guardian of the Red Chapel, who has grown too old to perform all his
duties.”
His aunt then told Percival that he had already passed the first of
the tests, for he had inquired concerning the Grail Hallow. Now, if
he wished, she would direct him to the Red Chapel, so that he might
begin his training as a Chaplain. This pleased Percival, for he knew
that becoming a Grail Chaplain was a very noble occupation.
So it was that Percival returned to the Red Chapel, where he found
that the Red Knight had recovered from the wound which Percival had
inflicted upon him. Percival’s sister, Dindrane, was there also, and
she was very happy to learn that he had agreed to become the new
Guardian of the Red Chapel and Chaplain of the Holy Grail.

After that, Percival stayed at the Red Chapel and studied the
Mysteries of the Grail. And when the time came, he stood before the
Red Knight and was consecrated as a Knight-Chaplain of the Grail. He
was given the Red Knight’s own armor as a sign of his commitment to
the spiritual guardianship of the Red Chapel. Then he returned to
Camelot and engaged in various quests and adventures. But he also
came often to the Red Chapel to assist the Red knight in his duties.
And when the Red Knight died of very old age, Percival took his place
permanently as Guardian of the Red Chapel.

Here ends the tale of Sir Percival and the Challenge of the Red
Knight. May his Blessed Spirit be pleased with my telling of it, and
may my ancestors smile upon me, now as ever.
