In many Germanic and Frankish kingdoms in the early Middle Ages, the count might also be a count palatine, whose authority derived directly from the royal household, the "palace" in its original sense of the seat of power and administration.

The Stauffenbergs' consciousness of being much unlike the rest which is not unconnected with their holding with family and nobility traditions may put off present-day observers or confirm their biases.
The principal motives of the Stauffenberg brothers were rooted in the consciousness of a family of the service nobility as well as in the intellectual and political history of their country.

Stauffenberg's attempt failed because he was not prepared to be a suicide bomber and ensure the job was done properly.
The intention of the plotters was to sue the Western Allies for peace, even hoping to keep some of their territorial gains, but leaving them free to concentrate on fighting the Soviet Union in the East.
And Stauffenberg, as a fighting soldier, was not deterred by the burden of the Fahneneid or the Christian belief that a new state cannot be founded upon assassination."
