Lohengrin, The Knight of Swan. Once save the Princess Elsa of brabant from Frederick of Telramund who accused Lisa of murdering her brother, Gottfried. Actually Gotifried was poisoned by Telrarmund’s wife, Ortrud, and became a swan. Later, Lohengrin defeated Telrarmund in a fight to prove Elsa sinnocence. With the King’s promise. Lohengrin would marry Elsa on the condition that she never seeked to know who he was. And where he came from. By instilling the poison of doubt into Elsa’s mind. Ortrude made Elsa break her promise and questioned to Lohengrin. So the Swan-boat carried Lohengrin back to the Grail castle.
