Ludwig Thoma (January 21, 1867 - August 26, 1921) was a German author, publisher and editor, who gained popularity through his partially exaggerated description of a Bavarian workday.

After graduation from the Imperial Latin School in Landstuhl (today: Sickingen- Gymnasium Landstuhl), he first studied Forestry in Aschaffenburg, then Law until 1893 in München and Erlangen. Subsequently, he settled down as a lawyer, at first in Dachau, later in Munich.

After 1899, he worked for the magazine Simplicissimus and published humorous narrations, comedies, novels and stories.

In the later years of his life, he wrote antisemitic and nationalistic propaganda agitating against Jews and left-wing politicians (e.g. for the newspaper "Miesbacher Anzeiger"). During World War I he served as a paramedic.

His best known works are Münchner im Himmel (A Municher in heaven), the Lausbubengeschichten (Brat stories) and Jozef Filsers Briefwexel (Jozef Filser's Correspondence).
