Adolf of the Rhine (German: Adolf der Redliche von der Pfalz) (27 September 1300, Wolfratshausen–29 January 1327, Neustadt) from the house of Wittelsbach was formally Count Palatine of the Rhine in 1319–1327.
He was the second son of Rudolf I, Duke of Bavaria and his wife Mechtild of Nassau. He didn’t really rule because his uncle Louis IV occupied the Palatinate until an agreement with Adolf’s brothers and his son Rupert II, Elector Palatine of the Rhine was concluded in Pavia in 1329.
