Sir Percivale

Sir Percivale

Percivale will be played by award-winning actor Jeremy Guerrero

Percivale, raised by his mother in ignorance of arms and courtesy, had a natural prowess that led him to Arthur’s court where he immediately set off in pursuit of a knight who had offended Guinevere.  He is the Grail knight or one of the Grail knights in numerous medieval and modern stories of the Grail quest.

Percivale is presented initially as a fool, but is pure enough to heal the wounded Anfortas and to become himself the keeper of the Grail.  The story of Percivale is recast in a modern setting in the film The Fisher King (1990).
