He is most famous for what is now known as the Battle of Hertwig's Folly. This happened in 2485 IC, when he was a teenager. He refused to allow the much more experienced Grand Master Kessler of the Knights of the Everlasting Light to command his army. In return, Grand Master Kessler withheld his troops from battle. The resulting bloodbath saw Hertwig barely escape with his life.[2b]
- Oddly enough, the map in Warhammer Armies: The Empire (8th Edition) places the Battle of Hertwig's Folly in Talabecland[2c].
