Origin of the name SIGUNE.
Etymology of the name SIGUNE.
Meaning of the baby name SIGUNE.
A cousin of sir Parcival in the tragic story of Sigune and
Schianatulander in the poem "Titurel," by Wolfram von Eschenbach.
Her name probably means "the conquering one," from sieg;
in the story she is an awakener of conscience. See explanation under
... Parzival followed his
mother's instructions to the letter, however, and came away scatheless.
Then he met his cousin, Sigune, and it may be said here that Sigune
represents in the poem the awakened conscience or intelligence within
ourselves, which takes note of our mistakes and illuminates our
progress... (The Legends of
Parsifal, Ford, 1904)
... Sigune was the daughter of
Duke Kiot of Katalonia and of Joisiane, daughter of Frimutel, the
Grail-king. Joisiane died in giving birth to her, so Tempetiere,
the brother of Kiot, took the baby girl and raised her together with his
own daughter Konduiramur. But when Herzeleide had lost her first
husband Kastis on her wedding-day, she took Sigune to her as a
consolation. When the girl grew up she met at the time of the
tournament of Herzeleide at Kanvoleis, a young page whom the French
queen Amflise had given to Gamuret when he left his country to seek
adventure in the heathen lands. This page was Schianatulander, a
grandson of Gurnemanz, and son of Mahaute and of Gorgegris, who was
slain by Mabonagrin at Joie de la Cour. Sigune and the page fell
deeply in love, and he served her as a true knight until his death... (American
Theosophist, v.12, 1910)
