In 1835, a triple anniversary was celebrated at the Munich Oktoberfest: It was the twenty-fifth anniversary of the marriage of the royal couple, Ludwig I (1786-1868) and Therese (1792-1854), the first Oktoberfest, which took place for the first time on the occasion of this wedding, as well as the founding of the agricultural central association of the kingdom, which played an important role in the organization and implementation of the event since the second Oktoberfest in 1811.
King Ludwig I, who, despite his love of pomp, also had very frugal features, had forbidden separate public celebrations of his silver wedding anniversary; but he had no objection to combining the wedding celebration and the Oktoberfest. The procession, which then passed the royal tent on the Theresienwiese on October 4, 1835, became the most magnificent procession that the capital had seen up to that point.
The program and drafts for the parade were created by the engineer and civil building inspector of the Isar district, Daniel Ohlmüller (1791-1839), who, as the architect of the neo-Gothic Mariahilfkirche in der Au (1831-1839), which was then under construction, belonged to the wider circle of people valued and valued by Ludwig I sponsored architects. The following list, arranged according to the groups in Ohlmüller’s program, combines the lithographs with the descriptive text that was delivered with them in 1836
