King Otto's body in repose, 1916 - Otto Wilhelm Luitpold Adalbert Waldemar von Wittelsbach (1848–1916), was King of Bavaria from 1886 to 1913. Otto was officially classified as mentally ill in 1872. He became King on 13 June 1886. He was however, unable to rule. The official explanation was that the King is melancholic. The proclamation of his inauguration was read to him at Fürstenried castle the next day, but he failed to understand it, & held his uncle Luitpold for the rightful King.
