This character is an enigmatic — and also tragic — ruler who is recognized in the stories as the last in a long line of Grail-keepers.

Otto Rahn believed that he had found the location of the Holy Grail Mountain, the Montsalvat of legend, in the Cathar mountain fortress of Montsegur in the French Pyrenees.
