Anton Graf von Arco auf Valley

Anton von Padua Alfred Emil Hubert Georg Graf von Arco auf Valley (5 February 1897 – 29 June 1945), commonly known as Anton Arco-Valley, was a German nobleman. He assassinated the Jewish Kurt Eisner, leader of the "People's State of Bavaria", on 21 February 1919.

Aside from being a political opponent of Eisner, a claim is that Arco-Valley might have decided to kill Eisner to prove himself "worthy" after he had been rejected for membership of the Thule Society, because he was partly of Jewish descent.

He was sentenced to death, but this was eventually reduced this to five years in prison.
