Theuerdank lays low a number of enemies; Theuerdank standing outside a castle with his sword raised above his head has killed two of his opponents, a third knight is sitting up begging for mercy. Neidelhardt standing behind the fallen knights on the left, Ernhold on the right next to Theuerdank, another male figure has turned to walk through a nearby gate into the castle. Illustration to Melchior Pfinzing, 'Theuerdank'. Woodcut
