Hans Multscher
 
 
 
(b Reichenhofen, Bavaria, c. 1400; d Ulm, before 13 March 1467). German sculptor.

Multscher mentions his birthplace on the inscribed band, originally a predella, of the Karg altarpiece in Ulm Cathedral (1433) and on two wings of the so-called ‘Wurzach Altar’ (1437) at Reichenhofen in the Allgäu. The town archives of Leutkirch, written between 1405 and 1437, record that Multscher belonged to the ‘Freien Leute auf Leutkircher Heide’, a commune of free peasants who had been able to preserve their independence because they were the direct descendants of Konigsfreie, who had always been free. Under a charter of Emperor Ludwig in 1337, these men were direct subjects of the Empire and had the right of free movement ‘to Imperial cities or other towns’.
