Queen Maria, mother of King Ludwig II, here in 1864, at a court ball.

Frankly,the portraits of Maria are more flattering than the photos of her  ::)



here with Prince Luitpold

Well, she wasn´t young anymore! As a young woman, she was beautiful. Her father-in-law also had a portrait of her in his beauty-gallery.

Although Otto WAS confined even before his brother's death, he still had to carry out several duties during the regency of his uncle. Infanta Eulalia of Spain visited Bavaria in the late 1880's, when Otto was already king. She states that the Dowager Queen Marie was a very sad character, always scared and nervous, terrified of her son's bizarre acts, like barking and scratching on doors during the night, which was when he seemed to "lose" his mind more. Eulalia seemed relieved to leave Hohenschwangau, where Otto and Marie were at the time, to join her sister María de la Paz in Munich,. A few days later their aunt (and Paz's mother-in-law) Amalia of Spain rushed down to Munich, saying she could not stand staying in Hohenschwangau overnight, hearing Otto barking. Eulalia also says that it was rumoured that Ludwig II wasn't mad, but the victim of a conspiracy to get him out of the way, and several members of the family gave him the benefit of the doubt. Certainly Eulalia found Otto much more calm and gentle than his brother, as if their amdness was of a different nature.

I persoanlly doubt that genetics was the reason for their instability, though it's odd that both should have turne dout mad. :'(
