By 1817, the descendants of Karl Friedrich by his first wife were dying out. To prevent Baden from being inherited by the next heir (and brother-in-law), King Maximilian I of Bavaria, the reigning Grand Duke, Karl, (the 1st Grand Duke's grandson) changed the succession law to give the Hochberg family full dynastic rights in Baden.
