According to Camerarius, who says he often used to see this boy at the court of the Prince of Bamberg at the end of the sixteenth century, the Bamberg boy said that he grew up among cattle in the mountains of the region. His wild behaviour, which included chasing and fighting dogs on all fours, gradually left him and the Bamberg Boy eventually even married.
