Herr Doctor Josef Anton von Bandel—Golden Knight of the Order of St. Peter, Count Palatine; satirist, theologian, husband. Father—my father. A man who died when I was only three months old. As a child, I knew very little about him. He was only a name, nothing more, but from what I learned, as I grew older, he had earned his nobility because he criticized anyone who stood against the Absolutism of the Catholic Church and the powers of such men as the Duke of Württemberg. Such was my father’s legacy.
