The House of Wittelsbach is a noble and royal house founded in the 11th century, perhaps descended from the Luitpolding dynasty. Their paternal ancestors were Germanic and produced two Holy Roman Emperors, one in the Middle Ages and one in the early Modern period—Louis IV, Holy Roman Emperor and Charles VII, Holy Roman Emperor respectively. Their core base has been in Bavaria where they were variously Duke of Bavaria and King of Bavaria. They later inherented the Palatine and several cadet-branches of the Wittelsbach dynasty became kings in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Greece.

With the advent of Protestantism in the 16th century, the Palatinate-Simmern branch adopted Calvinism and some Lutheranism, including Frederick V, Elector Palatine who was a king of Bohemia, while the senior line remained strongly Catholic. This saw the family fighting on separate sides during the Thirty Years' War in the Holy Roman Empire, with the main Wittelsbach line leading the Catholic League. Meanwhile, prince Rupert of the Rhine from the Simmern branch, was a famous general in the English Civil War on the Cavalier side.

Ludwig II of Bavaria, also known as the Swan King, was one of the more noted members building castles such as Neuschwanstein Castle and supporting Richard Wagner.
