He's been very romanticized in the past as "Märchenkönig" (fairy tail king), though in his conservative home state of Bavaria they didn't want to hear anything about him being homosexual and considered it slander. Not sure how the mood about him is these days.There was a bit of a revival of revering him in the 1950s, when German movies were often set in the late 19th century, the "good old times," pre-WW1, creating a romanticized image of the period. The Sissi movies, the 1954 movie about Ludwig II (which was painting a very ramantic, melancholy picture with no hint of homosexuality or other items that could have been considered controversial at the tim), a slew of 19th century operetta adaptations, along movies categorized broadly as "Heimatfilm", i.e. movies set in rural (southern) Germany or Austria, usually comedies or rmantic movies, at any rate "feel good" movies, often with musical numbers interspersed.
