The Nymphenburg Palace, most associated with Bavarian
King Ludwig I. Unlike his grandson, Ludwig II, who built
fairytale castles and was judged insane, Ludwig I collected

Castle. Ludwig II was declared insane and probably
murdered in 1886 to prevent him from spending any more
of the royal treasury on castles.
