Ludwig Georg: the long-awaited heir to the throne?
Ludwig Georg was born in Ettlingen in 1702. He was not yet the heir, as both of his older brothers were still alive. However, by 1709, both had died, meaning Ludwig Georg would one day assume rule of the margraviate. He was supposedly mute until his sixth birthday, not speaking until a pilgrimage to Einsiedeln. Out of gratitude, his mother donated the Einsiedeln chapel in her native Schlackenwerth, Bohemia. The chapel in Rastatt by the same name wasn't built until 1715/17.
