Christoff Rösener was a 16th century German Marxbrüder and certified Master of the Long Sword. In 1579, he authored a treatise on fencing entitled Ehren Tittel und Lobspruch der Ritterlichen Freyen Kunst der fechter ("Honors and Praise to the Free and Chivalric Art of Fencing"), which offered a history of the art of fencing and the Marxbrüder guild, as well as advice to students of the art.
