Transcript The Story of Nuremberg Maximilian, "the last of the knights," had taken a considerable part in the government before he succeeded his father in 1493. The Nurcmbergers, who always had an eye for a strong man, had already shown their loyalty to him. He had stayed amongst them at the house of Christopher Scheurl (father of the famous l)r Scheurl), and whilst there would seem to have amused himself light-heartedly enough. When about to depart, we are told, he invited twenty great ladies to dinner; after dinner, when they were all in a good humour, the Margraf Frederick asked Maximilian in the name ot the ladies to stay a little longer and to dance with them. , it is said, had taken away his boots and spurs, so he had no choice. Then the whole company adjourned to the Council House, several other young ladies were invited, and Maximilian stayed dancing all through the afternoon and night and arrived a day late at Neumarkt where the Count of the Palatinate had been expecting him all the preceding day. As Emperor, Maximilian stayed at th 1\ lis I burg. A brilliant assembly attended his first Reichstag. Masques, dances, tourneys and so forth are recorded with gusto by the chroniclers. The Kmperor, they say, entertained all the ladies of the town at dinner and provided them with two hundred and forty sorts of dishes. No wonder he was popular ! Nuremberg was not allowed to be content with supplying Maximilian with partners in the ball-room. In 1 499 she had to support him in his disastroi; with Switzerland. The Nuremberg contingent a/ai under Willibald Pirkheimer and Wolf P«"«mer. Beautifully dressed in red and white uniforms these soldiers earned the reputation of cowardice and treachery. Such imputations were, let it be confessed, not unfrequcntly cast upon Nuremberg courage ; but on this occasion the Emperor took their part and refuted the charge. 60
