HISTORICAL NOTES

Ludwig I (also rendered in English as Louis I; 25 August 1786 – 29 February 1868) was a German king of Bavaria from 1825 until the 1848 revolutions in the German states.

Born in Strasbourg, he was the son of Count Palatine Maximilian Joseph of Zweibrücken (later Maximilian I Joseph of Bavaria) by his first wife Augusta Wilhelmine of Hesse-Darmstadt. At the time of his birth, his father was an officer in the French army stationed at Strasbourg. He was the godson and namesake of Louis XVI of France.
