King Ludwig II of Bavaria and his(its) fairy tale locks are of the world a notion. As the latter true king of the century Paul Verlaine praised him in his(its) sonnet. His(its) contemporaries reproached him with love of extravagance. But today the locks belong to Ludwigs II. which submit so gorgeously to the Alpine landscape, to the most-visited sights of Bavaria. Millions from guests are pulled annually in their(her) spell. Richard Wagner, Sisi and the solitude: half a year after his(its) adulthood Ludwig was crowned after the surprising death of his(its) father Maximilian in 1864 to the king of Bavaria. Directly after his(its) assumption of office Ludwig II Richard Wagner appealed to Munich. He inundated the composer with money and favour proofs, some of his(its) works were performed in the Isar. The world of the music dramas of Wagner became for the Herscher the example, even if the composer had to leave Munich again and his(its) festival opera house in Bayreuth ge after one and a half years.
