  Maximilian II of Bavaria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Maximilian II of Bavaria (November 28, 1811 – March 10, 1864) was king of Bavaria from 1848 until 1864.
He was son of Ludwig I of Bavaria and Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen.
Maximilian was a man of amiable qualities and of intellectual attainments far above the average, but as a king he was hampered by constant ill health, which compelled him to be often abroad, and when at home to live much in the country.
