Neuschwanstein Castle

Personal Life

King Ludwig II's personal life definitely had an affect on the construction of the castle. He was never considered a popular king and in fact was pronounced "insane" later in his life before the castle's building came to a halt. Throughout the construction, King Ludwig II himself had a room in a neighboring castle that he used a telescope in to watch the creation and construction of the castle as it was built. Ludwig was known to be obssesed with Wagner's work. Because of this, a lot of his castle is decorated with it.
