A study claims that King Ludwig II was sane.

Thank you. Honestly at that time every original attitude (I mean far from the social norms) was considered insanity..... They couldn't accept difference

You are correct, Rominet09. Ludwig II was different. Could people not understand his artistic outlook? If his father Maximilian II had lived longer, would he have been a good role model for Ludwig?

Ludwig II

I can't seem to find the thread about him here.

I have found this very interesting article about his death. Unfortunately it is in French.

I'm sure there is a thread about him here but I can't find him either. He was certainly a fascinating and unusual character-- the close friendship with the Empress Elizabeth of Austria (Sisi) his second cousin, broken engagement to her sister, his sexual orientation, the tempestuous relationship with Richard Wagner, his compulsive castle building and mysterious death. The debate about his mental condition at the end of his life too, of course.

There are several good biographies on Ludwig, in English. I enjoyed The Mad King by Greg King but read it so long ago that I've forgotten most of it, lol.

An overview of Ludwig's life here, from Unofficial Royalty.

A Memorial service for the 133rd anniversary of the death of King Ludwig II was held today 16 June in the votive chapel in Lake Starnberg, Berg. Not far from the chapel the king was found drowned 133 years ago.
