Eugenio Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, is officially installed as the Apostolic Nuncio to Bavaria in Munich.

Pacelli's residence is on Brennerstrasse, immediately opposite what would become known as the Brown House, cradle of the Nazi movement. There is not currently a separate nuncio for Prussia or Germany, so Pacelli is effectively nuncio to the entire German Empire.

Not long after getting settled in Munich, Eugenio Pacelli will convey to the German government the desire of Pope Benedict XV to put an end to World War I. These overtures are greeted positively at first, but the German High Command will soon be convinced that they can win the war militarily. As a result, they keep putting Pacelli off rather than answer him.
