Context

Maximilian I pronounced the ban of the Holy Roman Empire on the Elector Palatine's son Rupurt for seizing Landshut. Rupert was married to the daughter of the late Duke George of Bavaria-Landshut had left the territory to his daughter, Rupert's wife, but this legacy contravened a succession agreement previously made between the duchies of Bavaria-Landshut and Bavaria-Munich. As a result, this issue prompted military campaigns in South Germany.
