Founded in 853 CE by Louis the German (r. 843–876) in Zürich, Switzerland, Fraumünster with its convent was inhabited by the female members of the aristocracy of Europe. The convent enjoyed the patronage of kings and the abbess the right to mint coins in Zürich until well into the 13th century CE. Ownership of the church and convent passed to the city of Zürich after the Reformation. Important architectural features include the Romanesque chancel and the high vaulted transept. The nave was last renovated in 1911 CE.
