|Occupation:||Crown Prince of the Galactic Empire|
|Died:||761 UC (452 IC / 3561 CE)|
Richard von Goldenbaum (Japanese: リヒャルト・フォン・ゴールデンバウム) was the eldest son of Kaiser Otfried V.
In 761 UC (452 IC / 3561 CE), Kaiser Otfried V's eldest son, Crown Prince (and Grand Duke) Richard von Goldenbaum, was implicated in a plot to assassinate Kaiser Otfried V, and executed along with 60 of his noble and courtier supporters. His brother Grand Duke Clementz von Goldenbaum was then made Crown Prince. Three years later, it was discovered that Richard had been innocent and had been framed by Clementz. Clementz died in an "accident" while attempting to flee to the Free Planets Alliance and the youngest brother, Friedrich IV, assumed the throne. (LOGH: 'The Klopstock Incident')
Though not open-minded, Richard was diligent and well-educated. (Legend of Galactic Heroes Gaiden Volume 1: The Star Crusher: 'Cobweb')
