There were occasionally riots due to scarcity of corn (notably in Mexico itself in 1692).
Inspectors and tax-gatherers did their work under police protection, and in several parts of the country riots had to be suppressed menu inililari.
Riots broke out also in Naples, Florence, Rome and Bologna.
In fact, after the flight of the king and the subsequent suppression of the riots, a warrant was issued for his arrest; and he had barely time to escape to Weimar, where Liszt was at that moment engaged in preparing Tannhauser for performance, before the storm burst upon him with alarming violence.
This change of affairs was accomplished by a series of riots between 7th June 1482 and 20th February 1483.
