Wilhelm Südekum

m.k.a. Bill Hammond

Wilhelm is a 16th century German Landsknecht meaning “servant of the land.” He and his wife, Jennifer of Forth Castle, have four children: Gwynevere Elizabeth, William Alexander, Anna Victoria, and Wesley Phillip The Stormborn Child. The Landsknecht were colourful mercenary soldiers with a formidable reputation as brutal, sought after mercenaries, making them the most feared soldiers in Europe. Skilled with long spears in pike formation, polearms like the Halberd, great swords like the flammenschwert or flame sword, and short swords called Katzbalger the Landsknecht became a dominant military force. What made the Landsknecht so conspicuous was their elaborate dress. Maximilian I exempted them from the prevalent sumptuary laws (that dictated the color and style of clothing for classes) as an acknowledgement of their “short and brutish” lives. As a result, the Landsknecht chose to dress in the most garish clothing possible to flaunt their social status and intimidate their enemies. Doublets deliberately slashed at the front, back and sleeves with shirts pulled through to form puffs of brightly-colored fabric, multi-colored hose, and broad, flat beret-type hats called Tellerbarrets with tall, colorful feathers, made them bodies of men that could not be mistaken.
