King Ludwig II Of Bavaria: We Three Queens

"Brian, you may not be mad, but Catholic, queer, in love with Wagner - there do seem to be points of intersection here..."

Matthew Parris's first question to Brian Sewell, who chose Mad King Ludwig for his Great Lives on Radio 4.
The programme is a hoot - I think Miss Sewell and Mrs Parris may have been at the Christmas sherry.
And now I know Brian is a fan of his royal mad-as-a-lorry-ness, I promise never to write anything bad about him again.
Unless Mr R Sewell starts writing homophobic crap for the Daily Mail again, obvs.

  1. "What did the ordinary Bavarian people think of him? No point in asking Brian cause he won't care..."
