“Stich u. Hieb und ein Lieb muß ein Landsknecht haben.”

Landsknechte were feudal serfs used for military purposes by their masters. These “soldiers” were often traded between landowners and were, in a sense, the equivalent of modern mercenaries, with the important difference that they were not free to choose their employer.
