Tannhäuser (pronounced TUNN-hoiz-er) was a German poet and Minnesänger whose poetry dates from 1245 to 1265 A.D. Outside his poetry, practically nothing is known of the historical Tannhäuser. In the 1400s, legend sprung up that he discovered the underground home of the goddess Venus, then sought atonement from the Pope for having worshiped her. Music/RichardWagner's three-act opera ''[[Theatre/{{Tannhaeuser}} Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf Wartburg]]'' popularized this legend in the modern era.
