(Thunderbolts Presents: Zemo - Born Better#4 (fb) - BTS) - Hobart was a skilled politician. He expanded the influence of the Zemo Barony and sought solutions for the growing unrest of the working class. As an aristocrat he still was a target for the people he tried to help.

(Thunderbolts Presents: Zemo - Born Better#3) - In 1879 Hobart was protected for several weeks by a time-displaced Helmut Zemo from daily assassination attempts by the "Workers Movement". During another attack Hobart fell from his horse and was accompanied by his guards to safety. Helmut was drawn into the future before he could stop a worker with a rifle from shooting the fleeing Hobart in the back. Hobart died on this day in 1879.

Comments: Created by Fabian Nicieza, Tom Grummett & Gary Erskine.

Leipzig was part of the Kingdom of Saxony and with Zeulniz described as being near Leipzig it was most likely too.
