Andreas was probably a 15th century German fencing master. He is credited with writing a brief comparison between the long sword teachings of Johannes Liechtenauer and the Messer teachings of Johannes Lecküchner, included in a 1491 manuscript compiled by Hans von Speyer (MS M.I.29). Nothing else is currently known about this fencing master, and he could even conceivably be Andres Juden or Andre Liegniczer, both of whom were apparently German fencing masters and were active before Hans von Speyer's time (Andre Paurñfeyndt is another candidate, though his known fencing treatise wouldn't be published for another 25 years).
