Abstract

The article focuses on the historical significance of the accounts of Peter Suchenwirt in his narrative poem "Herzog Albrechst Ritterschraft". It notes that medievalist scholars have categorized Suchenwirt's account as a nearly unconventional mixed origins of epic, history, and heraldry. It adds that his shifts between chivalric and rhetoric mark important transitional points in the narrative structure of his account from a romance, rather than historical perspective.
