About this font family

RoyalBavarian was comissioned by King Ludwig 1st of Bavaria about 1834. He was probably the greatest king Bavaria ever had, but he fell in disgrace for a short affair with the famous infamous Lola Montez and subsequently had to resign. He died 1868 peaceful and happy in Nice on the French Riviera.

The Plain cut is pretty much like the king wanted it, the Fancy cut is more to my liking and very decorative.

Yours in a royal mood Gert Wiescher.
