Hey, I know this one :-) It was part of a local exhibition here in Augsburg about Emp. Maximilian I. - Marx Walthers book was one of the pieces I did a bit of research on.

This led him to place a 14-year old boy on his lance riding around the ground thus demonstrating his strength!"

Just to be pedantic: The boy was 13 years old, but everyone keeps copying this mistake :P :iamamoron:

Way to be subtle about your pedo tendencies and you size, Marx Walther.
