German Wars – Part IV

After traveling through the ages from 1525 to the present, in the last 3 parts, in part IV i jump back in time. As promissed i try to cover the conflicts of and in the early holy roman empire.

Holy Roman Empire

Once again a short disclaimer and reminder, I am not an expert on that field nor is this going to be complete or 100% accurate, it is just a list to sow an idea or two for the tempted german or teutophile wargamer. 

As this is about history, you can get a lot of information for free on the internet on pages like Wikipedia or libraries. On top of that, you'll surely find quite a lot of sources and books, for example Ospreys on different of these topics. Please note that some of these have different names or titles, depending if you're looking from an euro-centric or anglo-(american)-centric point of view.

Some of these were territorial conflicts, others intern struggles for power, and others could be seen as civil wars.

Hungarian invasions of Europe (899-955)
German-Polish War (1002-1018)
Rebellion of the Saxons (1073-1075)
Stedinger War (1233-1234)
Battle of Legnica (1241)
Thuringia-hessian succession war (1247-1264)
Empire War against Ottokar II., of Bohemia (1278)
Battle of Worringen (1288)
Teutonic Knights again Lithuania (1303-1410)
Pomeranian Brandenburg conflict (1329–1333)
Thuringian Counts' War (1342–1345)
Luneburger succession war (1370–1388)
War of the Cities (1387–1389)
Flegler War (1412–1415)
Mainz-Hessian War (1427)
Soest Feud (1444–1449)
Saxon Fratricidal War (1445–1451)
First Elector Count War (1449–1450)
Mainz Diocesan Feud (1461–1462)
Polish-Teutonic War (1519–1521)

Well, that was a lot of input. I hope i could give an idea or two, for an upcoming project. I might pick up this concept, and introduce other conflicts and wars, that are not that known in Europe, but are interesting never the less.

Thanks a lot for reading, come by again soon and leave a comment or give me a like on Facebook if you like this blog!
