Administrative / Biographical History

Ludwig I (25 Aug 1786 – 29 Feb 1868) was king of Bavaria from 1825 until his abdication in 1848, due to his refusal to rule as a constitutional monarchy in the face of protests by students and the middle classes. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Maximilian.
