As far as I know :

 - Karoline loved Painting from childhood years on
 - before she married Max I Joseph 1797 she is said to be very in love with the french Duke of Enghien ( who was killed bei Napoleon I in 1804)
 - after she married she stayed to be protestant  ( not common in Bavaria at that time , and even today :-)))
 - she had dificulties with her older Stepchildren Ludwig I and auguste Amalie ( at the Time of her wedding 11 and 9 years old)
 - she got on very well with her younger Stepchildren Charlotte and Karl
 - she had a poor health and was very slim
 - she always stayed with her husband, either out of love, or jealousy
 - 1799 she gave birth to her first child, a deadborn son - she never really got over the loss and wore a Medaillon with his Hair, her entire Life
 - 1800 she gave birth to another Son, who died 2 years later from meningitis. Karoline and Max I Joseph were shattered by this loss
 - 1801 and 1805 she gives birth to twin daughters... all four survive and marry well later
 - 1808 she gives birth to Ludovika, later mother of Sissi
 - 1810 she gives birth to her daughter Karoline, who dies 1821.
 - 1825 dies her husband Max I Joseph and her stepson Ludwig I ,now King, tries to get her out of Munich and send her away to Würzburg, but she resists and stayes nearby in Tegernsee where she had many happy times during her marriage.

After her death, there was this embarrassing funeral.
Wikipedia.org:
"Caroline of Baden died November 13, 1841, outliving her husband by sixteen years and one month. Due to her Protestant religion, her funeral was conducted with so little royal dignity that there were public protests. By order of the Catholic archbishop Lothar Anselm von Gebsattel, all participating Catholic clergy were dressed in ordinary clothes instead of church vestments. The Protestant clergy were halted at the church door and not allowed to proceed inside for the service, so Ludwig Friedrich Schmidt gave the funeral sermon there. Afterwards, the funeral procession dissipated, and the coffin was placed in the burial crypt without ceremony. This treatment of his beloved stepmother permanently softened the attitude of Caroline's stepson Ludwig I, who up until that time had been a strong opponent of Protestantism in spite of his marriage to the Protestant princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen."

The incidence of fraternal twin births tend to run in families.  Caroline was a twin herself; her twin sister Catherine Amalie did not marry.  It doesn't seem to be documented whether the sisters were fraternal or identical twins.

Caroline gave birth to two sets of identical twins.  The first set - Elizabeth Louise and Amalie Auguste - were married to Frederick William IV of Prussia and John of Saxony, respectively.  The second set - Maria Anna and Sophie - were married to Frederick II Augustus of Saxony and Archduke Franz Karl of Austria, respectively.  A fifth daughter, Ludovika, married Maximilian Joseph in Bavaria.  Son Maximilian and daughter Maximiliana died in childhood.

The fact that Caroline gave birth to two (reportedly) identical sets of twins is remarkable indeed.  The fact that she herself was a twin raises the question as to whether this was a one in a million fluke, or was a hereditary trait?
