New Wittelsbach Museum
A new Museum of Bavarian Kings, devoted to the Wittelsbachs who ruled Bavaria from 1180 to 1918, opened to the public earlier this month. The museum sounds fascinating and I'm sure I would enjoy visiting myself. However, Bavarians--traditionally the most conservative and Catholic Germans--should not be content to confine the great Wittelsbach dynasty to their beautiful country's past. The ancient family must become a central part of Bavaria's future too: time to restore the monarchy. Long live the Kingdom of Bavaria!
