The Edict of the Winter Rose Garden (Japanese: 冬バラ園の勅令) is the 73rd episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.



The news of Alexandre Bewcock's death reaches Iserlohn Fortress. Yang Wen-li declares a mourning period for Bewcock. João Rebelo is murdered by military personnel from the Strategical Planning Centre, led by Rockwell. The Free Planets Alliance government surrenders unconditionally. On 9 February 800 UC (2 NIC / 491 IC / 3600 CE), Reinhard von Lohengramm lands on Heinessen. The Imperial soldiers discover a number of low level bureaucrats unwilling to surrender public documents, records, or properties to the Empire. Reinhard comments on how the Alliance perished precisely because such remarkable government servants were kept below positions of governance. However, while he pardons the uncooperative bureaucrats, he is disgusted over the treachery of Rockwell and his subordinates and orders their deaths. 20 February 800 UC (2 NIC / 491 IC / 3600 CE): The 273 year history of the Free Planets Alliance has ended.


Memorable quotes

"But sure, go ahead and shoot me. And buy your security."

João Rebelo, to Rockwell and company

"Maybe humans are capable of committing far more shameless acts than they can imagine. If they had not faced adversity, they might have gone without discovering such ugly facets of themselves."
"If I were to liken them to the effluvium of sewage, then that old man who died at Marr-Adetta was the pure water of the mountains."

Hildegard von Mariendorf, and Reinhard von Lohengramm, on Rockwell and company
