By slaying a dragon, the young prince Tristan wins the beautiful Isoldes hand in marriage for his nucle, King Mark. On their journey back to Marks court, however, the pair mistakenly drink a love-potion intended for the king and his young bride, and are instantly possessed with an all-consuming love for each another - a love they are compelled to conceal by a series of subterfuges that culminates in tragedy.

Von Strassburgs work is acknowledged as the greatest rendering of this legend of medieval lovers, and went on to influence generations of writers and artists and inspire Richard Wagners Tristan and Isolde.
