Hermann medieval knight

The first attestation of a knight in the region of Sibiu - servientes regis – dates ever since the beginning of the 13th century, namely about Johannes Latinus de Villa Reutel. It is believed that the legendary hero, Hermann – the founder of the Hermanndorf locality (villa Hermanni) – was a knight who built the first entrenched premises in the area of Piaţa Mică and Piaţa Huet by the end of the 12th century. For 200 years, since the 15th century, the statue of Roland the Knight was placed in Piaţa Mare.
