Former Bavaria's King Ludwig II is still very popular. Even when his fanatics have been born many, many years after his suspicious death.
He stayed very often in a little castle, located in Berg on Lake Starnberg where he entertained many famous guests.
King Ludwig II also dies here - probably he was murdered. Nobody knows.
He was noted for squandering money. A plot was initiated to declare him incompetent by reason of insanity and paranoia. It was planned to imprison him and Prince Leopold should become his successor.
Please use the Internet to read more about King Ludwig II. He was certainly very dedicated to art and history.
Berg the "Votivkapelle" (a chapel)- many thanks to Luidger and Wikipedia
King Ludwig II was in his Neuschwanstein Castle when a second attempt was carried out to arrest him after the first had failed. He was moved to the castle in Berg which was converted into a "mad-house". Immediately, all door handles were removed and holes bored into the walls used for observation.
Two days after his forced stay, he asked Dr. von Gudden to go with him for a walk.
After nobody returned, a night search started. At first the King's hat and the umbrella of Dr. von Gudden have been found in the park and after that the lake was searched. Soon the bodies of the King and the doctor were discovered in the shallow water at the shoreline of the "Starnberger See". The watch of King Ludwig II had stopped at 6:45 P.M.
Today, it is still an unsolved crime.
A wooden cross in the lake indicates where the king's body was found and a small chapel (Votivkapelle) was built ten years later.
