"The detail of Frederick Barbarossa's somnolence in a Thuringian grotto positively links his legend to that of the heroic knight Tannhäuser, which is celebrated in the Wagnerian opera of the same name. A minnesinger -- the German equivalent of a troubadour -- Tannhäuser was seduced by the goddess Venus and spent seven years indulging his carnal appetites at her court in the Horselloch Cavern of Thuringia. Returning at last to the World, he vainly sought absolution for his sins from one priest after another, appealing finally to the Pope, who dismissed him with the words: "You have as much chance of receiving absolution as this dry wooden staff in my hand has of sprouting green leaves!" Miraculously, the Pontiff's staff did sprout fresh shoots three days later, but a despairing Tannhäuser had already returned to the pleasures of Venus' court, where folklore has him remaining 'until the end of Time'."
