Ludwig Herzog in Bayern served
as general officer, largely ceremonial, in the Royal Bavarian Military
during the pre Great War period. Often referred to
as Louis, he was the eldest child of Max and Ludovika in Bayern. One of
his nine siblings, Elisabeth, was the wife of Austrian Emperor Franz
Joseph I. In 1859, Ludwig married the actress and commoner
Henriette Mendel (Baroness of Wallersee). Their daughter Marie Louise,
later know as the Countess Larisch, played a role in the scandalous Mayerling
Incident and was consequently snubbed by European society.
