Ulrich von Liechtenstein (1200–1275/6)

Ulrich von Lichtenstein (öl’riċh fon liċh’ten-stīn). A Middle High German lyric poet; born about 1200; died about 1275. He belonged to a noble family of Styria, and was long incarcerated as the leader of an unruly faction there. His principal works are: ‘Court to the Ladies,’ describing his amours and adventures from 1222 to 1255; and ‘The Ladies’ Book,’ from 1257: both valuable monuments of the manners and morals of the age.
