Perceval's sister

In the Vulgate Queste del Saint Graal, Perceval’s Sister leads Galahad to Solomon’s ship. From her own hair and from gold and silk, she makes a belt for the sword that Solomon left for Galahad. After agreeing to give her blood to cure a leprous woman even though she knows she will die as a result, Perceval’s sister asks to be buried in the city of Sarras because that is where Galahad will be buried. Malory gives a similar account. In Tennyson’s Holy Grail idyll, Percivale’s sister has the "vision"—probably a delusion—that begins the quest for the Holy Grail.

 

"This girdle, lords," said she, "is made for the most part of mine own hair, which, while I was yet in the world, I loved most well"
