Claudia Roth showered with liquid: Was it water?

With what liquid the woman Roth poured over the grandstand in the old town of Landshut was initially unclear. A police spokesman said it might have been water. Roth left the event relatively quickly after the incident. The 68-year-old was one of the guests of honor at the festival, which was followed by tens of thousands of visitors, along with Ilse Aigner (CSU), President of the Bavarian State Parliament (CSU) and Bishop Heinrich Bedford-Strohm.

The medieval historical spectacle recreates the marriage of the Polish Princess Hedwig with Duke Georg the Rich of Bavaria-Landshut. The “Landshut Wedding 1475” was included in the nationwide list of intangible UNESCO cultural heritage in 2018.
