Incredible Crown Jewels From Around The World
Bavaria (Now Germany): In 1806 when Napoleon re-ordered the European map, he granted the German duchy of Bavaria kingdom status. The new King of Bavaria, Maximilian I, commemorated the event by ordering that crown jewels be made for the country's new monarchs. The crown was decorated with rubies, diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, and pearls. Today, the crown jewels are on show in the treasury of the Residenz palace in Munich.
