Horse power all the way!

CB brings us another great dio, this time related to a XIX century Kingdom, that had a time limit on its existence - Bavaria.


The Kingdom of Bavaria was a product of Napoleon's fertil imagination, that brought it to existence in 1806, arranging things in a way to have it supply him with men and ammunition, and support him in his never ending wars.


After the Franco-Prussian war of 1870, during which it was Prussia ally, Bavaria joined the federation know as the German Empire. After that, it was just a matter of time until it became absorbed by the German juggernaut.
