Götz von Berlichingen, actually Gottfried von Berlichingen (born in 1480 in Württemberg, died in 1562 in Hornberg, Germany) - the German knight was an example of fidelity to the princes and loyalty to the word. He was a man of honor, devoted to his ruler for life.
At the age of 16, Götz von Berlichingen joined the service of Margrave Frederick II - the ruler of Brandenburg-Ansbach. A year later (in 1497) he participated in the expedition of Emperor Maximilian I, fighting in Lorraine, Brabant and Burgundy. In 1499 he hardly saved his life in a lost war with Switzerland.
