Reineke is the main character in a literary cycle of allegorical French (Renart), Dutch(Reinaert), English(Reynard), and German(Reineke) fables.

Those stories are largely concerned with Reineke, an anthropomorphic red fox and trickster figure.

J.W. Goethe tells the story of Reineke in the form of an Epic Poem divided in twelve chants.
