The Abduction of the Young Emperor (Japanese: 幼帝誘拐) is the 37th episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.



Between 6 and 7 July 798 UC (489 IC / 3598 CE), Alfred von Landsberg and Leopold Schumacher kidnap Kaiser Erwin Josef II via hidden underground tunnels within the palace grounds. Vice Admiral Molt, the head of security for Neue Sanssouci, commits suicide over his failure to prevent the kidnapping of the young emperor. Hildegard von Mariendorf realises that the kidnapping could only happen under the deliberate oversight of Reinhard von Lohengramm and confronts Reinhard over that. Reinhard argues that this incident will provide him with the justification to attack the Free Planets Alliance, since the kidnappers are expected to seek refuge in there. He then convenes a meeting with his top-ranking admirals and orders them to prepare their fleets to depart on immediate notice.


Memorable quotes

"All heroes have established thrones atop not just their enemies but a large quantity of allied corpses as well. There are no monarchs with clean hands. Their subordinates also know that. I would like you to consider that at times, to grant death is also a way to repay loyalty."
"So you are saying that you also would not mind spilling your own blood for my sake?"
"If it becomes necessary."
"See that you remember that."

Paul von Oberstein and Reinhard von Lohengramm
