Spouse Countess Elisabeth Douglas
Full name
Max-Emanuel Ludwig Maria
Father Albrecht, Duke of Bavaria
Mother Countess Maria Draskovich von Traskotjan
Born 21 January 1937 (1937-01-21) (age 72)

Max-Emanuel Ludwig Maria Herzog in Bayern, sometimes styled Prince Max of Bavaria, Duke in Bavaria, born 21 January 1937 as son of Albrecht, Duke of Bavaria, is the heir presumptive to both the former Bavarian Royal House and the Jacobite Succession. He uses the title "Herzog in Bayern" or Duke in Bavaria, since he was adopted as an adult by his great-uncle,Duke Ludwig Wilhelm in Bavaria, the last bearer of that title.



Max married the Swedish Countess Elizabeth Douglas-Stjernorp (granddaughter of general Archibald Douglas-Stjernorp) in a civil ceremony in Kreuth on 10 January 1967 and a religious ceremony in Munich on 24 January 1967. They have five daughters:

Succession Rights

As differentiated from the United Kingdom or any of its preceding kingdoms, the Bavarian crown could only be inherited by or through a female heir upon demise of all males of the dynasty. Because Max has no sons, the right to be called head of the former Bavarian Royal House will pass after his death to a cousin, Prince Luitpold of Bavaria or to Luitpold's son, Prince Ludwig of Bavaria, and his descendants. The position of heir of the House of Stuart will pass to Max's eldest daughter Sophie, Hereditary Princess of Liechtenstein.
