League of AugsburgEdit

id

 Forming the League of Augsburg


The reunion policy of Louis XIV had been forced upon by the Empire in the 1684 by the Truce of Regensburg, mostly because the Emperor was preoccupied by the Turkish menace (siege of Vienna in 1683). The continued French claims and expansion to the detriment of the Habsburg possessions and the German states of the Empire led to the creation of the anti-French League of Augsburg (1686).

 The League of Schmalkalden


After Emperor Charles V had rejected the Protestants confessional positions at the Imperial Parliament of Augsburg (1529-1530), the North German Protestant Imperial estates formed the League of Schmalkalden, with a joint army and treasury and seeking ties abroad (France).

 The Catholic League

 The Evangelic Union


The Holy Roman Empire had a fragile balance, split between 10 major and nearly 400 minor states and principalities, as well as two opposing religions. The power of the Emperor was quite limited beyond his direct domains and the erratic and inconsistent behavior of some of them, as Rudolph II, increased frictions. In 1608, the Protestant city of Donauwerth refused Catholics the right to practice their cult and is banned from the Empire. As a reaction, most German Protestant states formed the Evangelic Union to defend their freedom.
