Henri the Lion, a Saxon duke who briefly ruled Bavaria, founded Munich in 1158. In 1503, Munich became the capital of the united Bavaria. This was a city of modest size and architectural beauty until Ludwig I (1825 - 1848) succeeded to the throne. In his time, Munich was significantly expanded becoming the cultural, artistic and social center. In Munich, special attention was devoted to music and theater, which is why it was considered an exceptional cultural center of Bavaria and the whole Germany. After the First World War, Munich became the center of the right-wing movement. In 1923, Adolf Hitler tried to overthrow the Bavarian government. Ever since Munich has been regarded as the stronghold of the Nazi Party. During the Second World War, the allied forces heavily bombed the city. However, some important medieval buildings have been preserved, such as the Munich Cathedral and the City Hall. After the end of the war, Munich quickly developed into a high-tech center, from which corporate giants such as Siemens, BMW and Allianz come from. The Munich Fair plays an important role in the economy of the city – it organizes 40 international fairs annually, featuring exhibitors from all over the world. In 1972, Summer Olympics were held in Munich.
