There are at least two precedents for this: the first is in the Nibelungenlied, in which Etzel's east European vassals--Russians, Greeks, Poles, Wallachians, and Petchenegs--all disport themselves at the military games of the Hungarian court according to their native styles: "whatever different customs they had, they demonstrated them thoroughly." (21) Kriemhild, who has just arrived in Hungary, is greeted by a spectacle of exotic cultural otherness: "there she became acquainted with many strange customs, the likes of which she had never seen." (22) Since the Nibelungenlied merely posits cultural pluralities, but does not go into their precise nature, they all rend to blend together into a unified, vague eastern European alterity.
