This is an in-depth investigation of the Saxon role in the diplomatic processes connected with the Bavarian succession 1777-1779. The lack of male heirs in the succession lines of two important ruling families in Bavaria set off a maelstrom of legal disputes over inheritance rights, cultural customs and treaties. Original documents have been translated and included in the study.
