1435 Hans Talhoffer and Jörg Frauenberger the torturer

1435 July 9 – Another piece of the Villenbach/Villach puzzle: Jörg Frawenberger of Haag at Hohenburg was NO nice guy. He imprisoned and tortured the Nurembeger citizen Jacob Auer until this man confessed the killing of Wilhelm of Villenbach. Emperor Sigismund is not amused hearing this.
