Title: The Fisher King

The Fisher King
  • by
  • Vernique Sibert
  • Dalton Turman
  • and
  • Haley Smith

The Fisher King first appears in Chrétien de
Troyes' Perceval. In this story neither his
father or his wound are described. Also, the
item is never called the holy grail in this
story, because the story was in no way associated
with Christ until Robert de Boron suggested
it. The grail is the only way the kings wound
can be healed.
