Bavaria 1796 Ansbach Maximilian I Joseph Elector King Autograph Letter
Original autograph letter (ALS) from Maximilian Joseph, prince-elector of Bavaria (as Maximilian IV Joseph) 1799 to 1806 and then 1st King of Bavaria (after Napoleon and then Metternich with the Council of Vienna shuffled things up a bit)as Maximilian I Joseph from 1806 to 1825. A fantastic companion piece for the Bavarian philatelist, or for the collector of the House of Wittelsbach. Their palace can still be toured in the heart of Munich, and is certainly worth a visit. Then stop by the Franziskaner across the square afterwords for Kartoffelsuppe and fresh Hefeweizen. Slightly worn, folded -- in excellent condition, not even considering its age. Datelined Ansbach and signed as Max CP Duc de Deux Pont (Duke de Deux Pont) another of his hereditary titles, before he assumed Electorship or the Kingdom.
