Ludwig Freiherr von Leonrod (17 September 1906 – 26 August 1944) was a German officer who took part in the July 20 plot. Leonrod was born in Munich and joined the Weimar German Reichswehr on 1 April 1926 in the Cavalry Regiment 17 in Bamberg next to Claus von Stauffenberg. In World War II Leonrod was severely wounded in late 1941 and unfit for front service. In December 1943 Stauffenberg informed Leonrod about the plans for a coup d'état. Leonrod asked chaplain Hermann Josef Wehrle, who was later sentenced to death for his knowledge, about the theological justification of a tyrannicide.
