King Ludwig II of Bavaria and his Times

The "King Ludwig II of Bavaria – life, legacy, legend" virtual exhibition is supplemented here by additional sources on Ludwig II’s life and afterlife. Anyone interested can, for example, obtain further information on early descriptions of the Bavarian king’s life. Unknown aspects of the famous Wittelsbacher’s biography are also examined here, such as artistic influences and role models. The focus is particularly on the holdings of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Bavarian State Library).

The detailed level was designed in 2011 as a main topic for the Bayerische Landesbibliothek Online (BLO).
