The blogger identified only as "Hans Talhoffer" says the following about himself:

I am a dedicated fencer and researcher in the European Martial Arts from the period from the 14th until the 17th century. In jest I created the Facebook persona of Hans Talhoffer, a famous Fencing Master of the 15th century. Hans Talhoffer (Dalhover, Talhouer, Thalhoffer, Talhofer) was a Fencing Master, a Contract Combatant and a Consultant regarding Martial Arts and the Arts of War. He was born between 1410-1415 and lived at least until 1482 (latest mention of his name is 1489 in Munich Bavaria). He produced at least five surviving manuals to the arts of fencing and warfare which were copied several times. Talhoffer was a well educated man, who took interest in astrology, mathematics, onomastics, and the auctoritas and the ratio. He was ranked highly by his customers who paid a fortune to produce the manuals.
