The Lippstadt Conspiracy (Japanese: リップシュタットの密約) is the 18th episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.
Duke Otho von Braunschweig and Marquis Wilhelm von Littenheim team up to overthrow the young Kaiser and get rid of Reinhard von Lohengramm. Count Franz von Mariendorf wants to join the conspiracy, but his daughter, Hildegard convinces him to side with Reinhard's rising order instead. She goes to Reinhard and offers her family's allegiance. The high nobles create the Lippstadt League, led by Braunschweig and Littenheim; High Admiral Willibald Joachim von Merkatz is pressured by Braunschweig to command their military forces. 6 April 797 UC (488 IC / 3597 CE): Reinhard strikes first and manages to arrest many conspirators, but Brauschweig and Littenheim flee and regroup most of their forces in the Geiersburg Fortress.
"Special privileges can corrupt a person's soul; justifying themselves and harassing other people are almost instinctive to them."
