Favorite German Words

Der Raubritter = literally “robber knight” aka “robber baron”. Originally used in the sense of European feudal lords who robbed travelers passing through their domain by making them pay inappropriate amounts of currency, or by having them robbed of possessions in order to pass. In more modern use. it’s may be a person who’s made a very large amount of money, not afraid to act illegally or in an immoral way to do so. Someone who became wealthy by unethical means, like through shady stock market operations or the exploitation of others.

Lightening over Worms, Rheinland-Pfalz, Southwestern Germany. Worms is situated on the Upper Rhein 60 km from Frankfurt am Main. A pre-Roman foundation, it was the capital of the kingdom of the Burgundians in the 5th century and hence the scene of the medieval legends referring to this period, notably the first part of the Nibelungenlied. It was a Roman Catholic bishopric since at least 614, and an important palatinate of Charlemagne. Worms Cathedral is one of the Imperial Cathedrals and among the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in Germany. Worms prospered in the High Middle Ages as an Imperial Free City. Among more than a hundred Imperial Diets held at Worms, the Diet of 1521 ended with the Edict of Worms in which Martin Luther was declared a heretic. Today, the city is an industrial center and is famed as the origin of Liebfraumilch wine. Other industries include chemicals and metal goods.
