The Augsburger Vergleich agreement between Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony and the bishop of Freising, then at war, signed on June 14, 1158 during the council of the empire summoned by Emperor Barbarossa is considered the founding act of the city. In 1180, Otto de Wittelsbach became Duke of Bavaria and founded a dynasty that reigned over the region until 1918. From the late XVIIth century, Munich grew rapidly. In November 1923, Adolf Hitler and his companions attempted a coup (the coup of the brewery) but they failed. Having come to power, the Nazis made Munich the "capital of the movement" and built several buildings between 1933 and 1945.
