What a shame; it must be a hindrance to any research about the recent history Bavarian royal family if they are reluctant to grant access to the family archives. A good photo book wouldn't be a bad idea though, if very much a second best.

Is he this one who was adopted, because the Dukes in Bavaria had no sons?

No, Duke Ludwig Wilhelm in Bavaria, Carl Theodor's son, adopted Prince Max Emanuel, Albrecht's second son, because he didn't have any children. But, as you maybe know, Max Emanuel has 5 daughters ...

Ah, yes. Thaks Marie. I confused them.

What could an author write about Marie Gabrielle? And why is Franz of Bavaria against it so much?
Not everybody has a clean slate. But Marie Gabrielle? Or he donĀ“t wants that people mess in privacy.

There were so many of them that your forgetfulness is entirely forgivable!

Thanks. I think one of her daughters was named Immingrad who wrote her memoirs. I saw it when I was in Munich.

Heinrich was the only boy I think, and there was also Editha, Gabrielle, Hilda and another whom I forget. I have acquired quite a few postcards of these children recently, I will post some when I have scanned them.

Their names are Heinrich (1922-1958), Irmingard (born 1923), Editha (born 1924), Hilda (1926-2002), Gabrielle (born 1927) and Sophie (born 1935).
