About the object
Under the reign of Grand Duke Leopold, Baden fell into an all-encompassing economic and constitutional crisis that led to the revolution of 1848/49. In early 1848, even the Grand Duke’s own army rebelled against him. He was only able to reclaim his power with the help of Prussian troops. This reveals how low esteem for the dynasty had sunk in the eyes of the population.
