Bellifortis — an early 15th-century latin book with illuminations on military technology by retired soldier Konrad Kyeser (26 August 1366 – after 1405) from Eichstätt (Bavaria), working at the imperial court. There are at least 45 surviving illuminated manuscripts, mostly from the German Lands, which copy, excerpt or amplify the work. One of these is the Thott Fechtbuch of Hans Talhoffer (1459).
