A rare photo of Crown Prince Ludwig (left) With his mother Queen Maria (in the center) and his younger brother Otto (on the right) in 1860: Otto would become King after the death of his older brother in 1886, although he would not be able to properly rule as King of Bavaria due to his mental health problems. The photo was taken privately as a photo for family albums, as was in vogue among many nobles at the time, and was not published at the time. (Source: Wikimedia)
