Full of the joy of life which rose superior to every disappointment, a most gallant soldier who created the splendid landsknechte for his country's ser vice, a fearless, unrivalled hunter, a writer on every subject under the sun he was also the very mirror of knightly courtesy. The wonderful fascination of his genial, gracious manner, and his sympathetic tact in personal intercourse with rich and poor, won all hearts. Kaiser Max, as his people called him, was the darling of his German and Tyrolese subjects. He was the first patriot king Of modern times, and his proud motto My honour is German honour, and German honour is my honour, shows us how he felt himself one in joy and sorrow, in defeat and in glory, with his people.
