I wouldn't necessarily call the Bavarian Royal House a minor royal, but non-reigning. They have a history that goes back as far as the Hapsburgs and in the Middle Ages they were considered more powerful than the Hapsburgs. For awhile Bavarian duchesses were very prized brides of the largest houses in Europe.
Until 1918 they were on reigned one of the four Kingdoms in Germany. And the reigned in bavaria for 700 years.

There where many more.
From the daughters of King Maximilian I. Joseph:
his oldest daughter Charlotte Auguste (Later karoline Auguste) she married first the future King Wilhelm I. of Württemberg but the marriage was divorced in 1814, secondly she married as his fourth wife Emperor Franz I. of Austria
Elisabeth (12801-1873) married King Friedrich Wilhelm IV. of Prussia
Amalie (1801-1877) married King Johann of Saxony
Marie (1805-1877) married King Friedrich August II. of Saxony
Sophie (1805-1872) married Achduke Franz Karl of Austria and was the mother of Emperor Franz Joseph I.

From the ducal line
Elisabeth (1837-1898) married Emperor Franz Joseph I. of Austria
her niece Elisabeth (1876-1965) married King Albert I. of the Belgians
Marie (1841-1925)married King Francesco II. of the Two Sicilies
Marie Gabrielle (1878-1912) married the future Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria

Thanks stefan and magnik. I didn't know that Elisabeth of Belgium was the niece of Elisabeth of Austria. They don't seem to have looked a thing alike.

Going back to weddings, wasn't the Oktoberfest in Munich originally part of the celebrations for a royal Bavarian wedding? I remember reading the original plans included a hunting party for the aristocrats and the common people wanted a celebration too so the King decreed a beer festival to take place so long as the vendors would not be allowed to sell food. It seems an excuse for public drunkenness but perhaps that discussion is for another thread.

Yes. The first OF took place on 1810 from 12 to 17 October for the commemoration of the marriage of CP Ludwig (Ludwig I and uncle of the Empress Elisabeth "Sissi") and Princess Therese of Saxe-Altenburg, Duchess of Sachsen.
