Thursday November 16th
Afternoon: Jousting tournament in the Old town. Duke Christoph challenges a Polish prince. Evening: Dancing with Emperor and bride: The Chronicler tells us that the bride danced with each prince and that according to court etiquette the dancer had to walk on the bride's left. Only Count Eberhard of Württemberg made a gaffe, walking on the bride's right - only theEmperor and the bridegroom were supposed to do so - and was admonished by the Margrave. Later the Emperor wished to see a dance of princesses, ladies and maidens only, "and there were many fair ladies and maidens there" - 81 couples according to the chronicler.
Friday November 17th
The Margrave leaves Landshut and stays in Mainburg overnight.
Saturday November 18th
The Emperor leaves Landshut for Vienna, the Count of Württemberg heads for Ansbach where he probably wanted to stay at the Margrave's court. Several other princes stayed in Landshut for a while, as did Margaret of Saxony. The scribe's report ends with this information, as he followed the Margrave on his way back.
