Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King of Bavaria Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Sax­e-Hild­burghausen on October 12, 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the fes­tiv­i­ties held on the fields in front of the city gates to cel­e­brate the happy royal event. Since then, Oto­ber­fest is held at the same place every year (except for epi­demics and wars).
