Origin of the name ORGUELLEUSE.
Etymology of the name ORGUELLEUSE.
Meaning of the baby name ORGUELLEUSE.

  

ORGUELLEUSE.  Arthurian.  An arrogant woman called L'Orguelleuse de Logres," which probably means "the mocking one of Logres."

Parzival, page 6, line 90"Orgelusé."  This name, like Orilus, is a misunderstanding of a French original.  Chrétien calls the lady "L'Orguelleuse de Logres," and it evidently stood so in Wolfram's source.  This incident of a knight proffering his services to, and riding with, a lady who repays him with mockery, and finds food for mirth in his misfortunes, seems to have been a favourite theme with mediaeval writers... (Parzival, Wolfram-Weston, 1912)
