    Berthold, Mar­grave in Bavaria (died 980), was the an­ces­tor of Otto I, Count of Schey­ern (died 1072), whose third son Otto II, Count of Schey­ern ac­quired the cas­tle of Wit­tels­bach (near Aichach). The Counts of Schey­ern left Schey­ern Cas­tle (con­structed around 940) in 1119 for Wit­tels­bach Cas­tle and the for­mer was given to monks to es­tab­lish Schey­ern Abbey. The Wit­tels­bach Con­rad of Schey­ern-Dachau, a great-grand­son of Otto I, Count of Schey­ern be­came Duke of Mera­nia in 1153 and was suc­ceeded by his son Con­rad II. It was the first Duchy held by the Wit­tels­bach fam­ily (until 1180/82). Otto I's el­dest son Eck­hard I, Count of Schey­ern was fa­ther of the Count pala­tine of Bavaria Otto IV (died 1156), who was the first Count of Wit­tels­bach and whose son Otto was in­vested with the Duchy of Bavaria in 1180 after the fall of Henry the Lion and hence the first Bavar­ian ruler from the House of Wit­tels­bach. Duke Otto's son Louis I, Duke of Bavaria ac­qu...

    The Wit­tels­bach dy­nasty ruled the Ger­man ter­ri­to­ries of Bavaria from 1180 to 1918 and the Elec­torate of the Palati­nate from 1214 until 1805; in 1815 the lat­ter ter­ri­tory was partly in­cor­po­rated as Rhine Palati­nate into Bavaria, which Napoleonel­e­vated to a king­dom in 1806. On Duke Otto II's death in 1253, his sons di­vided the Wit­tels­bach pos­ses­sions be­tween them: Henry be­came Duke of Lower Bavaria, and Louis IIDuke of Upper Bavaria and Count Pala­tine of the Rhine. When Henry's branch died out in 1340 the Em­peror Louis IV, a son of Duke Louis II, re­united the duchy. The fam­ily pro­vided two Holy Roman Em­per­ors: Louis IV (1314–1347) and Charles VII (1742–1745), both mem­bers of the Bavar­ian branch of the fam­ily, and one Ger­man King with Ru­pert of the Palati­nate(1400–1410), a mem­ber of the Palati­nate branch. The House of Wit­tels­bach split into these two branches in 1329: Under the Treaty of Pavia, Em­peror Louis IV granted the Palati­nate in­clud...

    Under Max­i­m­il­ian's de­scen­dants, Bavaria be­came the third most pow­er­ful Ger­man state, be­hind only Prus­sia and Aus­tria. It was also far-and-away the most pow­er­ful sec­ondary state. When the Ger­man Em­pire was formed in 1871, Bavaria be­came the new em­pire's sec­ond most pow­er­ful state after Prus­sia. The Wit­tels­bachs reigned as kings of Bavaria until 1918. On 12 No­vem­ber 1918 Lud­wig III is­sued the Anif de­c­la­ra­tion (Ger­man: An­i­fer Erklärung) at Anif Palace, Aus­tria, in which he re­leased his sol­diers and of­fi­cials from their oath of loy­alty to him and ended the 738-year rule of the House of Wit­tels­bach in Bavaria.The re­pub­li­can move­ment there­upon de­clared a re­pub­lic.

    Dur­ing the Sec­ond World War, the Wit­tels­bachs were anti-Nazi.[citation needed] The fam­ily ini­tially left Ger­many for Hun­gary, but were even­tu­ally ar­rested. Fam­ily mem­bers spent time in sev­eral Nazi con­cen­tra­tion camps in­clud­ing Oranien­burg and Dachau.

    With Duke Otto III of Lower Bavaria, who was a ma­ter­nal grand­son of Béla IV of Hun­gary and was elected anti-king of Hun­gary and Croa­tia as Bela V (1305–1308) the Wit­tels­bach dy­nasty came to power out­side the Holy Roman Em­pirefor the first time. Otto had ab­di­cated the Hun­gar­ian throne by 1308.

    A number of the moves have been from terms containing "dynasty" to ones containing "house" and others have been moved from the bare house name. Wittelsbach itself is only a name. This is an article about the House of that name. It makes sense to me to have it here.
