Pride Month: Ludwig II of Bavaria

The Eccentric Life and Mysterious Death of Ludwig II of Bavaria Katy and Nathan are back with a Pride Month special, and it's all about Ludwig II of Bavaria - the 'Swan King'. This dude was all about the arts, built some seriously extra castles, and had a personal life that was... complicated (to say the least). We're diving deep into his life - his obsession with Wagner's operas, that engagement that didn't quite make it, and all the political drama. Plus, we're tackling the controversial mystery of his way-too-early goodbye. So, grab your crowns and join us as we celebrate the legacy of this fascinating king. 00:00 Introduction to Pride Month and Ludwig of Bavaria 01:33 Early Life of Ludwig: A Royal Childhood 03:01 Ludwig's Eccentric Personality and Interests 13:45 Ludwig's Relationship with Prince Paul 18:50 Ludwig's Obsession with Richard Wagner 26:58 Failed Engagement 29:59 Ludwig's Extravagant Castles 37:25 The Conspiracy to Depose Ludwig 43:01 Mysterious Death of Ludwig II 53:28 Ludwig's Legacy Queens Podcast is sponsored this month by Happy Mammoth.
