Biographical information

  • Landshut 1548 - 1579
    As heir-apparent he lived with his wife and children at Castle Trausnitz.
  • München 1579 - 1626
    Wilhelm was a staunch defender of the Counter Reformation and strickly supervised the belief of his subjects (he expelled all non-catholics from Bavaria). Two of his sons became high clergymen: Philipp Wilhelm cardinal-bishop of Regensburg and Ferdinand, archbishop of Cologne. The Duke abdicated on 15 October 1597 and retired to a monastery: the reason was probably his relentless mismanagement of money, that constantly landed himself and especially the country on or over the brink of bankruptcy.
