Thirty Years' Day War
During these years, crop losses took place in many areas from Norway to Sweden and Italy. Maybe Spain has a half a million losers. However, after 1600 and over the course of the centuries there were more rural crisis, more scarcity of foodstuffs, various economical problems in Spain, England, France and the Holy Roman Empire, and here and there the populations decreased.
Ferdinand turned against Protestantism in 1618 by shutting some of Prague's churches. Ferdinand was supported by the Catholics Maximilian, Emperor of Bavaria, and Philip III, Emperor of Spain. From 1618 to 1625, Spaniards who supported Ferdinand vanquished French troops. Balthasar von Bernbach, Abbot of Fulda, led a mobilized Inquisition in Middle Germany in the course of his action against Protestantism in order to find sorceresses.
In wealthy towns hunts of the witches dominated, and within three years von Bernbach killed 250 of them. Duke Julius of Braunschweig, a modern day protester, also chased hitches. In Germany, the anti-witch campaign culminated in the sixteen-20s with Sadist torture to force confession. 1625 the warmongering spread with the German Invasion by the Emperor of Denmark and Norway, Christian IV, who voiced his allegiance to protestant rulers.
Fearing the Habsburgs' might, he wanted to extend his possessions, especially to take command of the Elbe. The Habsburg armed troops under Albert von Wallenstein advanced from Germany to Denmark against Christ IV, ending the dream of King Christ, and in 1629 Christ made an agreement with the Habsburgs in the Treaty of Lübeck.
Habsburgs wanted to seize the Baltic Sea to protect against Denmark and Sweden and to curb Netherlands commerce. Recently Sweden had become one of the more affluent European nations, changing from a land of farmers and few cities to a land with a monetary system that drew attracting overseas investments and became a leader in the production of ferrous metals and cupper.
The Swedish Empire had evolved as a powerful Europe, and the Evangelical Emperor of Sweden, Gustavus II, was afraid that the Habsburgs would take a step against Swedish rule over the Baltic Sea. His expansion was to Poland, and after eliminating animosities against him there, he was free to move to North Germany. On 6 June 1630 Gustavus attacked North Germany near Pomerania.
In 1631 they smashed the Habsburg troops at Breitenfeld and secured Protestantism for North Germany. Gustavus welcomed protestant Germany as a deliverer. There was a Saxon Lutheran military that went to Bohemia and invaded Prague. The Habsburgs beat the Swedes in Nordlingen (120 kilometres north-west of Munich ) in 1634, and Gustavas of Sweden had won Catholic France as his allies.
The Habsburgs' rivals for might - rivals for might that count for more than the Catholic-Evangelical dispute - were the subject of France's work. The French armies were small in comparison to the Habsburgs, poorly educated and poorly outfitted. During the last and most bloody period of the Napoleonic Wars, the last and most bloody period had started in places in Italy, along the borders between Spain and France, between Denmark and Sweden, and the United Netherlands followed France in the battle against Spain.
In 1640 Portugal rebelled against the Spanish Habsburg Emperor and restored its sovereignty. The majority of the fights took place in Germany, with troops and their supporters streaming through the area. Flüchtlinge from the southern German area streamed into north Germany. Germany had already shed one third of its municipal inhabitants and two fifth of its countryside.
In 1648 the Great Patriotic War, christened the First World War by the German population, ended with a solution by negotiation, the Westphalian Treaty, thirty years after the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, with France and Spain waging a further ten years of conflict. At the time the village talked about a "Christian and ubiquitous harmony and an eternal, genuine and sincere friendship".
" Anger, bloodshed and the devastation of the Thirty Years' War had created a need for a minimum of human toleration. Since the Peace of Westphalia, the European Union has reoriented its matters of religion and politics. Peace in Westphalia recognized worldly royalty as the legitimacy and dominance of the state.
Although the Habsburgs came back to the colony, their domination in Bohemia, they recognised the end of Habsburg domination in Europe. France became the leading force on the continental Europe - a triumph for France's weapons and the diplomatic. Now France was the referee of Europe. In Germany's fragmentation, his position of sovereignty was greater than that of the so-called Holy Roman Emperor of Germany.
The Swedes won Vorpommern and the dioceses in Bremen and Stettin. In 1659 Spain was forced to make peaceful agreements with France. The Spanish had been losing credibility. She was no longer regarded as the greatest force in Europe. "He said the warmongering had strengthened the centralisation of powers. The Spanish federal administration had subjected the state administration to its own total domination - a new absoluteism that spread throughout Europe.
The governmental organisation also grew in Sweden. France had started the dominion of Louis XIV (1643-1715), the longest dominion in Europe's historical past, with the French Empire culminating in absoluteism and demanding union with God, the fount of total dominion by God's right.
