Includes the first translation from Middle High German.
“Reinfried von Braunschweig” is both a verse novel, courtly love, and an adventure story. It was written shortly after the fall of Akon 1291 by an anonymous author in Middle High German. As no title was handed down, it is commonly named after its protagonist. “Reinfried von Braunschweig” consists of two essentially separate parts, the first telling the story of courtship, the second recounting the travels and return of its hero. Only one script of the text exists today, which is a fragment, breaking off in the middle of a sentence.
Vol. I (Verses 1-6.834)
In search of glory and honour, Reinfried von Braunschweig rides to the Danish town of Linion. Celebrated champion in the fights with lance and sword, he receives a kiss by Yrkane, most beautiful daughter of the king – a kiss which leads to a momentously romance.
