Princess Ludovika of Bavaria was the sixth child of King Maximilian I of Bavaria and his second wife, Queen Karoline, and the mother of Empress Elisabeth of Austria. She was born and died in Munich, Germany.

LifeEdit

Princess Ludovika married Duke Max, whose father Duke Pius August was her cousin, on September 9, 1828, in Tegernsee. Ludovika was always frustrated that, unlike her elder sisters (who married kings and Austrian archdukes), she would not be marrying someone with a grand title, but rather a peculiar and childish Duke who had a fondness for circuses. However, Ludovika was determined to create dynastic marriages for her daughters. She and her husband had ten children, including Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Queen Maria Sofia of the Two Sicilies.

  • Her son Wilhelm Karl, Duke in Bavaria was born on 24 December 1832, and his younger sister Empress Elisabeth of Austria was also born 5 years later on 24 December 1837.
