If you want more information about Otto I of Bavaria then he is mentioned in the book’s written about his brother Ludwig II of Bavaria.
Some of the best book’s is written by Desmond-Chapman-Huston who quote’s from the secret diaries’ and personal letters from the archives of the Wittelsbachs family.
Also the book’s written by Christopher McIntosh and Greg King are rather informative.

For those whom may be interested, there is in the book by Katerina Von Burg “Windsor publications" bearing the title of “The man and the mystery” a whole chapter dedicated to King Otto I.
The chapter being chapter 10 in witch there are 20 tight printed pages of very sympathy full information.

The municipality of Ottobrunn (Munich) has an interesting Otto,King of Greece museum within the townhall,as well as a commemorative pillar close to the spot where HM King Max said farewell to his son upon his leave for Greece in 1832.

The museum has over 200 (personal) objects on display that once belonged to Otto.

Ludwig`s brother Otto never was King of Greece: Otto of Greece was a son of King Ludwig I. and an uncle of King Otto I. of Bavaria.  :)

The castle Fürstenried in Munich, where Otto lived from 1880 - 1916:

Now that's a photo I have never seen. He certainly looked very handsome. I have read that the drugs administered to Otto were unkind. Some say he was not insane at all but was kept drugged. Who knows what the truth is about him. Certainly it was convenient to have him out of the way for his Uncle Luitpold.

He had very nice features, though his brother got all the attention.  ;)

Most drugs in those days were rather crude.  :'(

Furstenried looks charming. I read somewhere that Otto may in fact have been drugged. Certainly Ludwig was effected by what he took to alleviate his appalling toothache.

Well it must be remembered that Denistry was very primitive in those days. Elizabeth I is supposed to have had a foul temper due to a mouthful of decaying teeth and constant toothache. Can you imagine this? Her teeth were apparently quite black from using charcoal to clean them.

Can you imagine this? Having all your teeth hurt at the same time, when inhailing or drinking, must have been just horrible.  :'(
