Elector of Bavaria Maximilian II Emanuel (portrait by Joseph Vivien)


German nobility, son of Ferdinand Maria, Elector of Bavaria, and Henriette Adelaide of Savoy. He was ruler of Bavaria and a Prince-Elector (Kurfürst) of the Holy Roman Empire. He was also the last governor of the Spanish Netherlands and duke of Luxembourg. An able soldier, his ambition led to conflicts that limited his ultimate dynastic achievements. He died on 26 February 1726 aged 63 in Munich.
