The Munich wedding festival of 1568 of Prince Wilhelm of Bavaria rivalled those of the great Italian courts in both the splendour of its festivities and the fullness of its documentation. The three published festival books, by Hans Wagner, Massimo Troiano and Heinrich Wirre, record its exceptionally early commedia dell'arte-related entertainments. Possible influences on them are considered in the light of a detailed examination of the 1565-66 travel diary of Wilhelm's younger brother, Prince Ferdinand. Its comprehensive overview of north Italian princely and popular diversions experienced by members of the Bavarian court in a three-month period shortly before the Munich wedding includes descriptions of performances and festivals seen by Prince Ferdinand in Trent, Bologna, Florence, Verona and Ferrara.
