King Etzel

This is a depiction of King Etzel from a beautiful sculpture (Nibelungen-Brunnen, “Nibelungen Fountain”) in Tulln, Austria by Michail Nogin of his meeting with Kriemhild. Etzel is my German family name and I claim him as my ancestor. That’s how I got the Sir Colby nickname. According to the Nibelungenlied (the Song of the Nibelungs), it was in Tulln that Etzel saw Kriemhild and proposed to her. The fountain was dedicated to this event in 2005.
