Because the owner of that page doesn't know how to use German titles the way we do?

because she probably copied it from somebody who doesn't know about titles non-existent empires.

His name is Ludwig, Prinz von Bayern. "Prinz von Bayern" being his surename. He is said not to even use his name, but go by Ludwig Bayern or Ludwig Bayer. I guess he could also use his house-name "Wittelsbach", but if he likes to stay under the radar, Ludwig Bayern/Bayer makes sense.

junior (or short "jun.") and senior ("sen.") are often used in Germany to tell apart the father/son of same name,
a bit similiar to I, II, III as used in the US.

BUT in case of this Ludwig, it makes absolutely no sense, as his fathers name isn't Ludwig, but Luitpold.
So there's no need for a "jun." here.

King Ludwig II was engaged to Princess Sophie in Bavaria. The wedding was to take place in August. The wedding date in August was August 25, which was Ludwig's birthday.   
However, by early summer the wedding was postponed to October. Just two weeks before the wedding, Sophie Charlotte received a letter cancelling the engagement.

Countess Augusta von Seefried auf Buttenheim (1899-1978) in 1919 married back into the House of Wittelsbach with Prince Adalbert of Bavaria (1886-1970). Augusta was the daughter of Count Otto von Seefried auf Buttenheim and Princess Elisabeth Marie of Bavaria. Elisabeth was the daughter of Archduchess Gisela of Austria and Prince Leopold of Bavaria.

Cyril, I recall reading that Ludwig II was a very good swimmer and his drowning was considered suspicious. He had bankrupted/was on his way to bankrupting Bavaria with his Castle-build programme and the powers that be were very concerned. He was a visionary.

Celia, had I not visited the castles I would have agreed with you. They are breath-taking in their beauty and have an out of time quality to them. Neuschwanstein Castle, at the time it was built was both a vision of the future and ode to the past. If that is madness, it is a malady I will gladly succumb to.

Wasn't one of Ludwig's castles the inspiration for the castle in Disneyland?
