    After Ludwig II. Was disenfranchised in June 1886 by a highly dubious and nowadays implausible medical report and was taken to Schloss Berg on June 12, the king, who was under constant surveillance, undertook the following day with the psychiatrist. Gudden took a walk and was found floating around the midnight lifeless in the lake.
    The version that Ludwig would have committed suicide by drowning can be disregarded in the clarification of the mysterious circumstances of death simply by the fact that the 1.90 m tall man, who was an excellent swimmer, was found in knee-high water. The place where Ludwig II and his companion died on June 13, 1886 is marked by a cross (formerly a flag) in the lake. In November 1918, an iron memorial cross was erected and maintained by the "Ludwig II. Your Faithful" Association, which was last renewed in 1986 by a teak cross

    To commemorate the finding of the dead King Ludwig II in Lake Starnberg, a votive church was erected. Every year on the anniversary of the death on June 13, a memorial service is held.
