Bavaria (German: Bayern) named for a Teutonic tribe, the Baiovarii, who defeated the Romans and settled among the Romano-Celtic peoples of the area around the 6th Century of the common era (CE). The Duchy of Bavaria dates back to 562 CE and its ally, Napoleon, elevated it to a kingdom (German: Königreich Bayern) through the Treaty of Pressburg in 1805. After the collapse of the German Reich at the end of World War I it briefly became a Republic and in 1919 a German state. In 1949, Bavaria became a German federal province.[1] [2]

The capital, Munich (German: München) was originally a small monastic settlement dating from the 8th Century. The origin of the name dates from when a new bridge was built over the River Isar "zu den Munichen" (Old High German meaning ‘to the Monks’).[3]
