Crazy as they come...

Here are my results:

You are Ludwig II, the Swan King of Bavaria!
Born with the name of Otto, you became Ludwig at the request of your grandfather, King Ludwig I, because you were born on his birthday. You became Crown Prince at the tender age of 3, and soon after stole a purse from a shop on the basis that everything in Bavaria belonged to you. Tragedy struck when your pet tortoise was taken away; relatives thought the six-year-old prince was too attached to it. Your childhood was lonely and formal. Once, you were prevented from beheading your younger brother by the timeous arrival of a court official. From the age of 14 you suffered from hallucinations.
Despite striking an imposing figure with your great height and good looks, your speeches were pompous to the point of incomprehensibility. You became even more of a recluse, often spending hours reading poetry in a seashell-shaped boat in your electrically-illuminated underground grotto.
You are most famous for building three fairytale castles - Linderhof, Neuschwanstein and Herrenchiemsee - at tremendous public expense. Declared insane and confined to your bedroom by concerned (and embarrassed) subjects, you escaped on 13 June 1886, but were later found drowned with your physician in Lake Stamberg in mysterious circumstances.

I'm Ludvig II, the Swan King of Bavaria!

Thanks for this, James. It was a lot of fun.

I followed up on my blog, if you want to see. I didn't get a picture of my loon, though. I must have missed something. No surprise there.

Anyhow, thanks for the nice diversion and for the interesting reading. Loons are fun.

No problem, Robin. There was some code to copy and paste at the bottom of the screen. That's where the picture pops up. I'm glad you liked it.

I am Charles VI of France, also known as Charles the Mad or Charles the Well-Beloved!

A fine, amiable and dreamy young man, (ok then) skilled in horsemanship and archery, you were also from a long line of dribbling madmen ( & women - I'll let you meet my mom).
