Biography

Charles was born in Munich, 7 July 1795. He was the second son of King Maximilian I of Bavaria and his first wife Princess Augusta Wilhelmine of Hesse-Darmstadt.[2]

Charles fought against Napoleon at the Battle of Hanau in 1813, became a general of division, and took part in the Campaign of 1814. His differences with Prince Wrede led to his retirement from 1822 till some time after the latter's death in 1838, when his brother King Ludwig I of Bavaria appointed him field marshal and general inspector of the army. In the Austro-Prussian War of 1866, he was commander-in-chief of the 7th and 8th corps of the Bavarian army, which cooperated with the Austrian, after which he retired from the public service.[2]

He married morganatically in 1823 with Marie-Anne-Sophie Petin (1796-1838), created Baroness von Bayrstorff, with whom he had three daughters:

  • Caroline Sophie (16 October 1817 - 25 May 1889), married in 1834 with Adolf Baron von Gumppenberg (Munich 1804 - Munich 1877)
  • Maximiliane Theodore (20 September 1823 - 19 March 1895), married in 1841 with August Count von Drechsel zu Deufstetten (Munich 1810 - Munich 1880)
  • Franziska Sophie (10 October 1827 - 2 March 1912), married in 1845 with Paulo Martins Viscount d'Almeida (Rio de Janeiro 1806 - Munich 1874)
