suffered in the Thirty Years' War, with vast losses in capital and savings, and a small, static burgher class. Lacking large-scale organization they could not carry on overseas colonization or trade, and internally their commerce was stifled by varying laws, tariffs, tolls and coinage.

Hohenzollerns accumulated key territories while Bavarians used the church to gain key cities; Saxons gained the thrones of England and Poland.
