Die Meisterlieder des Hans Folz ("The Mastersongs of Hans Folz"; MS Q.566) is a German manuscript containing a fencing manual, created in 1479[1]. The original currently rests in the Weimar Classics and Art collection of the Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek in Weimar, Germany. This manuscript contains a number of writings by Hans Folz von Worms, including his mastersongs, but it's uncertain whether he was responsible for its fencing teachings.
