The phrase MAGNUS AB INTEGRO SAECLORUM NASCITUR ORDO ("The great order of the ages is born afresh!") is taken from the fourth Eclogue of Virgil. A similar, shorter  phrase Novus ordo seclorum (Latin for "New Order of the Ages") appears on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, first designed in 1782 and printed on the back of the United States one-dollar bill since 1935. The phrase also appears on the coat of arms of the Yale School of Management, Yale University's business school. The phrase is also mistranslated as "New World Order" by many people who believe in a conspiracy behind the design; however, it does directly translate to "New Order of the Ages".

Maximilian I (also known as Maximilian Joseph) (May 27, 1756 - October 13, 1825) was prince-elector of Bavaria (as Maximilian IV Joseph) from 1799 to 1805, king of Bavaria (as Maximilian I) from 1806 to 1825.

Maximilian was the son of the count palatine Frederick Michael of Zweibruecken-Birkenfeld and Maria Francisca of Sulzbach, and was born at Schwetzingen - between Heidelberg and Mannheim.

He was carefully educated under the supervision of his uncle, Duke Christian IV of Zweibruecken, became Count of Rappoltstein in 1776 and took service in 1777 as a colonel in the French army and rose rapidly to the rank of major-general. From 1782 to 1789 he was stationed at Strasbourg, but at the outbreak of the French Revolution he exchanged the French for the Austrian service, taking part in the opening campaigns of the revolutionary wars.

On April 1, 1795 he succeeded his brother, Charles II, as duke of Zweibruecken, and on February 16, 1799 became Elector of Bavaria and Count Palatine of the Rhine, the Arch-Steward of the Empire, and Duke of Berg on the extinction of the Sulzbach line with the death of the elector Charles Theodore.

The sympathy with France and with French ideas of enlightenment which characterized his reign was at once manifested. In the newly organized ministry Count Max Josef von Montgelas,  who, after falling into disfavour with Charles Theodore, had acted for  a time as Maximilian Joseph's private secretary, was the most potent  influence, an influence wholly "enlightened" and French. Agriculture and commerce were fostered, the laws were ameliorated, a new criminal  code drawn up, taxes and imposts equalized without regard to  traditional privileges, while a number of religious houses were  suppressed and their revenues used for educational and other useful  purposes. He closed the University of Ingolstadt in May 1800 and moved it to Landshut.

In foreign politics Maximilian Joseph's attitude was from the German point of view less commendable. With the growing sentiment of German nationality he had from first to last no sympathy, and his attitude throughout was  dictated by wholly dynastic, or at least Bavarian, considerations.  Until 1816 he was the most faithful of Napoleon's German allies, the relation being cemented by the marriage of his eldest daughter to Eugene de Beauharnais. His reward came with the Treaty of Pressburg (December 26, 1805), by the terms of which he was to receive the royal title and important territorial acquisitions in Swabia and Franconia to round off his kingdom. He assumed the title of king on January 1, 1806. On March 15 he ceded the Duchy of Berg to Napoleon.

The new king of Bavaria was the most important of the princes belonging to the Confederation of the Rhine, and remained Napoleon's ally until the eve of the Battle of Leipzig, when by the Treaty of Ried (October 8, 1816) he made the guarantee of the integrity of his kingdom the price of his joining the Allies.

By the first Treaty of Paris (June 3, 1814), however, he ceded Tyrol to Austria in exchange for the former Grand Duchy of Wuerzburg. At the Congress of Vienna, which he attended in person, Maximilian had to make further concessions to Austria, ceding Salzburg and the quarters of the Inn and Hausruck in return for the western part of the old Palatinate. The king fought  hard to maintain the contiguity of the Bavarian territories as  guaranteed at Ried but the most he could obtain was an assurance from Metternich in the matter of the Baden succession, in which he was also doomed to be disappointed.

At Vienna and afterwards Maximilian sturdily opposed any  reconstitution of Germany which should endanger the independence of  Bavaria, and it was his insistence on the principle of full sovereignty  being left to the German reigning princes that largely contributed to  the loose and weak organization of the new German Confederation. The Federal Act of the Vienna Congress was proclaimed in Bavaria, not as a law but as an international treaty.  It was partly to secure popular support in his resistance to any  interference of the federal diet in the internal affairs of Bavaria, partly to give unity to his somewhat heterogeneous territories, that Maximilian on May 26, 1818 granted a liberal constitution to his people. Montgelas, who had opposed this concession,  had fallen in the previous year, and Maximilian had also reversed his  ecclesiastical policy, signing on October 24, 1817 a concordat with Rome by which the powers of the clergy,  largely curtailed under Montgelas's administration, were restored. The  new parliament proved to be more independent than he had anticipated  and in 1819 Maximilian resorted to appealing to the powers against his  own creation; but his Bavarian "particularism" and his genuine popular sympathies prevented him from allowing the Carlsbad Decrees to be strictly enforced within his dominions. The suspects arrested by order of the Mainz Commission he was accustomed to examine himself, with the result that in many  cases the whole proceedings were quashed, and in not a few the accused  dismissed with a present of money.

Maximilian died at Nymphenburg Palace, near Munich, on October 13, 1825 and was succeeded by his son Ludwig I. Maximilian is buried in the crypt of the Theatinerkirche in Munich.
