Abstract: Why did Duke Rudolf of Upper Bavaria kidnap his mother, brother and the steward of the family in the castle of Schiltberg in the summer 1302? Besides political reasons, some more psychological motives are examined. Rudolf might have inherited his father’s inclination towards uncontrolled emotional violence, when he accused his mother of infidelity. Also the possibility of the so-called “Jacob and Esau-Syndrom” is discussed as a possible background for the abduction.
Translation of the abstract: Cet article étudie les possibles mobiles qui poussèrent le duc Rudolf à kidnapper sa mère, son père et l’intendant familial dans le château de Schiltberg en Haute-Bavière à l’été 1302. Des raisons politiques, comme les tensions entre Wittelsbach et Habsburg, ou psychologiques sont examinées. Rudolf a pu hériter de son père une propension à la violence émotionnelle incontrôlée quand il a accusé sa mère d’infidélité. Le “syndrome de Jacob et Ésaü”, la rivalité fraternelle, est une autre piste. (French)
