On January 1, 1806 Bavaria became a kingdom. Comprehensive reforms were aimed at
integrating its different regions into a modern state. This restructuring also affected Bavarian
crafts. The liberal call for freedom of trade collided with the power of the guilds, who at that
time controlled almost every aspect of the craft trade. The issue of a satisfactory constitution
for craft businesses made feelings run high for a long time.
