Ludwig I. von Bayern
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 25, 1786
Death: Feb. 29, 1868

King of Bavaria. He married Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (1792-1854), the daughter of Frederick, Duke of Saxe-Hildburghausen. The wedding was the occasion of the first ever Oktoberfest. Ludwig studied in Landshut where he was taught by Johann Michael Sailer and in Göttingen.
Ludwig strongly rejected the alliance of his father with Napoleon I of France but in spite of his anti-French politics the crown prince had to join the emperor's wars with allied Bavarian troups. In 1817 Ludwig was involved in the fall of Prime Minister Count Max Josef von Montgelas. He succeeded his father on the throne in 1825. During the revolutions of 1848 he abdicated on March 20, 1848 in favor of his son, Maximilian. Even after his resignation Ludwig remained an important sponsor for the arts.
