Herr Gotfrid von Schwaben

(13th C. Swabian [German])
[pronounced GOT-freed fon SHWA-ben]
(Registered as Gotfridus von Schwaben, the Latinized form Gotfridus would have been written down in the baptismal/birth records, but the individual would have been known commonly as Gotfrid.)


  • Gotfrid was born in the SW district within the city of Stutgarten from the Duchy of Swabia (today known as Stuttgart, Germany), and is an aspiring Minnesänger who makes a living as a herald for hire during his journeys. He enjoys brewing, woodworking, archery, and dabbles at illumination. (Stick figures are his forte.)
