The last two, both pop up quite regularly in "Royal Circles"

British Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee medal (Inner, inner, inner circles of royalty got it in gold I believe, sometimes with an "1897" clasp)

Swedish Oscar Jubilee medal  (For Royalty in his case)

The bar is very typical for a peace time German/Bavarian Royal... a lot of jubilee medals! To those already mentioned, I can add #4 is the German Südwestafrika-Denkmünze in Stahl, #5 is the Prussian Medaille zur Erinnerung an des Hochseligen Kaisers und Königs Wilhelm I., des Großen, Majestät, the so called "1897 Centenary Medal", and #6 is the Austrian-Hungarian Jubiläumskreuz from 1908. I could only find a really, really bad (and sad!) picture of this medal bar in a damaged vitrine after the 2005 theft in Schloß Hohenschwangau...

Was this stolen from the home of Crown Prince Ruprecht?

The theft took place at Schloß Hohenschwangau (near Schloß Neuschwanstein), but, as can be seen in the picture, this medal bar was still there after to theft, which means it was not stolen. Many other pieces were stolen, however, but I think all or at least most of them, luckily, found their way back to the museum.

I once read they got back around the half of the 106 stolen ones.
