The Bavarian-Munchen Principality
The Bavarian-Munchen Principality is a member state of the Holy Roman Empire along with following states of Brandenburg and Austria. It was founded from civil disarray in 1450 A.D when King Andreas Kribt the First united all the Houses under one rule in hopes of forming a long lasting united Bavaria. Bavaria was also one of the instrumental aids in Uniting the Holy Roman Empire along with its vassal, Wurttemberg. Bavaria supported Austria in the War of Imperial Succession and helped turn the tide in the favor of the Empire.

The Age of Enlightenment and Bavaria
The 1700's saw the birth and growth of the age of industry and enlightenment in Bavaria. The music world was revolutionized by the inventions of the klaviertone (piano) and the works of Johanne Ambrosius (ATL Johann Sebastian Bach). Innovations abounded with the inventions of the Periodic Table, the growth of Industry, including a perfected air furnace. The Age of Enlightenment saw the freedom of the serfs and slaves alike as well as the growth of the middle class and the increase of knowledge, thanks in large part toward the progressive policies of the Reichstag in opening education up to all and including advanced schooling. This age also gave birth to the Pax Bavaria, an almost 20 year period of peace and growth not seen since the abandonment of the old HRE.
Bavaria and the Germanic Union
The Empire of Bavaria was instrumental in the founding of the Germanic Unions along with Saxony and the Rhineland, as well as Brandenburgish Germany. The Union acts as the unilateral Federal force for Central and Eastern Europe, merging the three Germanies into a confederation of equal and semi-autonomous states that are allowed to control virtually every aspect of the nation, except also answering to the Union as a whole. (A version of the European Union, in essence). The Bavarian Bankgruppe founded the founding of a new European currency called the Reichsthlaler to replace the Adler and Mark respectively. The Union also declared unwavering support for any Germanic nation in distress. In 1743 Bavaria answered this call on the behalf of the Union to protect German cantons of Switzerland from foreign French influence.
The Fall of the German Union and the War of German Unification
The Empire attempted to keep the Union from failing but In the 1750's the Great Stellockian Wars happened when the German Union nation of the Rhine invaded its fellow Union members, The General Strellock seized power in the Rhineland and declared himself the Emperor of Germany. The war that insued marked the decline of the Union, while the war was won, the Union was left in ruins. Then in 1772 the Union officially collapsed and a year later war was declared between Bavaria and her long time ally-turned nemesis, Brandenburg. The war raged for almost a decade and destroyed the economies of the two nations. (TBC)
