Immense wealth was concentrated, sometimes in new rich families, like the Fuggers whose financier empire, with great political influence such as financing the Habsburg bribes for electors to be Holy Roman Emperors, thanks to their monopoly on the Tyrolian silver mine of Schwaz, which constituted the majority of Europe's production. The fate of the peasant majority grew ever worse, with famine and rising levies from noble and ecclesiastical land owners, sparking circa 1525 German peasant revolts and plunder, mostly of fat monasteries, whose degeneration the fallen monk condemned while entering into marriage with still numerous-growing offspring. Although his press-divulged ideas, pleading personal responsibility and conscience rather then ecclesiastical formalism and its abusive excesses, were read as encouragement by the lower classes, Luther sided with legalistic obedience to the worldly order, blessing even the princes' bloody repression -notavly near Luther's natal countship near In Frankenhausen- by armies of the revolution preached by ex-Lutheran social reformer Thomas Müntzer.
