The Fraumünster Abbey, founded in 853 by King Louis the German and disbanded in 1524, provides the historical background to the Gesellschaft zu Fraumünster.
For centuries, the abbesses of the Fraumünster Abbey were Imperial Princesses and rulers of Zurich. They exercised all the important rights of sovereignty and had a significant impact on the cultural, social and economic life of the city.
