The magnificent illustrated book entitled »Die Wittelsbacher – ein Jahrtausend in Bildern « was published in 2014 by Luitpold Prince of Bavaria. With more than 600 pages, this very special book recounts the history of Bavaria in a new and thus far unparalleled manner – in pictures, in paintings, as well as in printed graphic works and illustrations of historical monuments. Many of the documents and artistic treasures from the private collection of the House of Wittelsbach which are contained within the book are not so well-known or have never before been seen in public.

The publication is also a kind of family album. It illustrates the history of the ruling family – from the hour of birth of the House of Wittelsbach, through to the last Bavarian king, and right up to the present day. The widespread noble lines of the Wittelsbachs are presented in detail for the first time and the familial relationships with the European high nobility are outlined and made understandable for the contemporary reader.
