Persona

Adolphus was born in 1310 in the fortified town of Caub (Kaub) in castle Gutenfels. His parents where the Freiherr and Freifrau of the area. Adolphus went to school in Mainz, until 1325. That year King Ludwig the Bavarian wanted to build a toll castle on the small island in the Rhine River adjacent to the town called the Pfalz. A deal was made by Adolphus’ father and the King. The King would pay to build the Castle and the Benners would run, collect the tolls, and provide security as Bavaria’s Northern River Gate. The castle was completed in 1327, it fell to Adolphus to control the castle, while his father built further fortifications around the town. In 1332, with Adolphus’ father dead, he became Freiherr (Baron) of Caub and the Pfalz. Adolphus saw a major increase of trade on the Rhine and his wealth increased immensely. Caub also had vineyards and a small brewery.
