Annotation

Count Pappenheim became world famous, since his name forms the key part of the Czech, Flemish, Dutch, Scandinavian, and German colloquialism; "I know my fellow Pappenheims" ("ich kenne meine Pappenheimer"). It is used to imply tongue-in-cheek that someone has, is or will be acting in a way that is completely expected. The sentence originally held a positive connotation and referred to the determination of Pappenheim's horsemen. Friedrich Schiller used the modified sentence "Daran erkenn' ich meine Pappenheimer" in his Wallenstein trilogy.
