NOTES The subject of the painting is based on the poem "Conradin of Swabia" by J.J. Bodmer (Karlsruhe 1771). The last representative of the noble House of Hohenstaufen, Conradin (Conrad), Duke of Swabia (1252-68), was taken captive after suffering a defeat in a battle against Charles of Anjou near Tagliacozzo in Italy. Conradin of Swabia was beheaded in Naples together with his friend and comrade in arms Friedrich of Baden, who was possibly also his lover.
