Prince of Bavaria Heinrich (1916)


Prince of Bavaria, a member of the Bavarian Royal House of Wittelsbach, and a highly decorated Army officer in the First World War.

Heinrich was the only child of Prince Arnulf of Bavaria and his wife Princess Therese of Liechtenstein.

At the age of 17, following his Abitur, Heinrich joined the Bavarian army with the rank of Leutnant. Initially, he served with the Royal Bavarian Infanterie-Leib-Regiment, but later was reassigned the 1st Royal Bavarian Heavy Cavalry “Prince Charles of Bavaria”.

After the outbreak of World War I, the regiment saw action on the Western front, where Prince Heinrich was badly wounded. Upon recovering, he returned to his old infantry regiment and in June 1915, was promoted to Major. At the same time, he was put in charge of the III. Battalion of the newly established Deutsches Alpenkorps stationed in the Carnic Alps. In late 1916, the battalion was transferred to Romania where it fought at Turnu Roşu Pass. During the ensuing German offensive at Monte Sule by Hermannstadt (Sibiu) in Transylvanian Alps, on 7 November 1916, Heinrich was fatally wounded by a sniper and died from these wounds a day later, on 8 November 1916.
