ABSTRACT
This entry that appears on page 7 of the August 27, 1880 issue of the newspaper "Saint Louis Post-Dispatch" cites a story from "A Tramp Abroad," one of the works of American writer and humorist Samuel Clemens, also known as Mark Twain. It is said that the story may be true as King Louis II of Bavaria had a well-known love for opera and had established a friendship with Richard Wagner. However, the King has shown signs of mental illness by the late 1870s, and was removed power.
