From the fame-rich poet and Minne-Singer Walther von der Vogelweide (Walt of the bird pasture) are approximately 150 poems and over 90 songs delivered. It lived approximately about 1180 - 1230. There is not much documentary provable about his life.
It is interesting that in the original sheet from the Codex one-eat two sketchy lines from the note sheet towards skies to strive seem. Should the monk, which made this sheet of Walther, have had somewhat a suspicion that Walther of the bird pasture had been a giraffe nevertheless?
