Peter von Danzig was a 15th century German fencing master. Apart from the fact that he was apparently born in Danzig (Gdańsk), a coastal city in modern-day Poland, and lived in the city of Ingolstadt in Bavaria, all that can be determined about Danzig's life is that his renown as a master was sufficient for Paulus Kal to include him in the roll of members of the Fellowship of Liechtenauer in ca. 1470. Danzig is often erroneously credited as the author of the 1452 manuscript Cod.44.A.8, a compilation of several treatises by different masters of the Liechtenauer tradition. In actuality, Danzig only authored the final section of that book, a gloss of Johannes Liechtenauer's Recital on dueling with the short sword.
