The historical background
Ludwig Uhland of Tübingen spent much time in Bebenhausen. His poem "Der letzte Pfalzgraf", or "The Last Count Palatine", was published in 1847. Uhland described how both the city of Tübingen and Bebenhausen Monastery were both sold to the counts of Württemberg in 1342. It was only the right to hunt in Schönbuch and the expensive housing and maintenance of the hunting falcons and dogs in Bebenhausen Monastery that the count palatine from Tübingen, Gottfried II ("Götz"), secured for himself in the process.
