The Triumph of Maximilian I

The Triumphal Procession or Triumphs of Maximilian is a monumental series of more than 200 proposed woodcut prints created by many of the foremost artists of the day. Hans Burgkmair designed much of the Triumphal Procession, starting in about 1512 and contributed designs for 67 woodblocks. Other contributions were made by Albrecht Altdorfer, Hans Springinklee, Leonhard Beck, Hans Schäufelein, Wolf Huber, and Albrecht Dürer.  Production of the work was stopped after the Emperor's death and thus was never finished, but of the original design 139 blocks are known to exist.  Each block was meant to lead into the other, making the full work measure approximately 177 feet long and one of the largest prints ever produced. It was designed to be pasted to the walls in city halls or the palaces of princes to create a decorative frieze and an expression of the Emperor's power and magnificence.

Der Weisskunig (The White King) - Burgkmair

Der Weisskunig or The White King is a chivalric novel and thinly disguised biography of Maximilian I.  It was written in German by Maximilian and his secretary between 1505 and 1516. Although not explicitly identified as such in the book, Maximilian appears as the "young" White King, with his father Frederick III represented as the "old" White King.  The text recounts their dealings with contemporary characters whose identities are disguised but easily decipherable.  These include the Blue King (the King of France), the Green King (the King of Hungary) and the King of Fish (representing Venice).  Maximilian is depicted as a virtuous ruler favored by God.  The book is now mainly remembered for the 251 woodcut illustrations, made in Augsburg between 1514 and 1516, the principal artists for which were Hans Burgkmair and Leonhard Beck.  Only a few proofs were completed between 1514–16 and the full work remained unpublished.  It was not until the blocks were rediscovered in 1775 that they were first published as a complete book in Vienna.
