King Ludwig was the most expensive king that Bavaria ever had. he built castles upon castles and bought the most fabulous carriages a royal could ever had. His majestic carriage was the model for the fairy tale cartoon movies, like Cinderella. He had a fastidious liking for operas that he personally commisioned Richard Wagner to write operas for him. he had a greta liking for the other arts like architecture-as seen i n his castles-as well as objects like furniture and paintings. Out of budget, Bavaria had to finance his whims and fantasies inspite of his very fragile sexuality. This book is a staple on the king and is the best reading source before once embarks on a trip to Bavaria, the modern day Munich in Germany.
Today his castles and artifacts stand as a monument for the king that he is. For those into Germanic or European royalty, this book is the most exhaustive of all written about the king. Its one of my favorite books.

This is the authority on Ludwig II. I have read four bio's on Ludwig, as well as seen everything on the world wide web that has anything to do with Ludwig, and this book is the very best one. Really, it's one of the best books I've ever read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
