5.7.1778: Bavarian War of Succession
Saxon and Prussian troops invaded Bohemia. The Habsburgs’ attempt to increase their influence by annexing Lower Bavaria and the Upper Palatinate to their regime failed. The war ended in 1879. Austrian emperor Joseph II had tried to trade the Netherlands for part of Bavaria. He intended to restore the Habsburgs’ power to compensate for their losses in Silesia and thwart Karl Theodor’s plan to unite Bavaria and Palatinate.
