John IV, Duke of Bavaria

John IV. of Bavaria-Munich (German: Johann IV., Herzog von Bayern), (Munich, 4 October 1437 – 18 November 1463 in Munich) was duke of Bavaria-Munich from 1460 until his death.


John IV was a son of Albert III, Duke of Bavaria and ruled as duke of Bavaria-Munich from 1460 in a time of constant unrest of the nobility and strife with the cities. He was known as an avid hunter and died of plague in 1463. He was succeeded by his brothers Sigismund (already co-regent since 1460) and Albert IV. John IV is buried in the Frauenkirche in Munich.
