Adolf, Duke of Bavaria

Adolf (7 January 1434, Munich - 24 October 1441, Munich) was a German nobleman. He was a Duke of Bavaria-Munich in the House of Wittelsbach.

He was the eldest son of William III, Duke of Bavaria and Margaret of Cleves. His younger brother William of Bavaria-Munich died in infancy. Since William III's brother Ernest and Ernest's son Albert III were available as ruling dukes, Adolf's role was very limited. He died aged only seven and thus had little effect on the duchy's fortunes.
