Heinrich von dem Türlin's Diu Kröne (The Crown)

   In another grail romance, Heinrich von dem Türlin's Diu Kröne 'The Crown', a "gotinne" (goddess, fairy) is the bearer of the grail. In this romance, the grail mystery is the story of a curse. The salvation, which is due to Gawein's question: 'what is the meaning of all this' (a question that is never answered), is that the dead man and his society of male zombies can die and the female society of the grail bearing goddess and her maidens can take over rule. (By the way, the goddess is the sister of King Arthur's stepfather, a mighty magician).
