The Thirty Years War

Good Essays
The Thirty Years War was large scale conflict that erupted on the European Continent, for mainly religious and Economical reasons. The conflict was initially sparked in 1618, as the Catholic prince Ferdinand, was named to rule a largely Protestant region of Bohemia. This subsequently caused a Rebellion by the Bohemian aristocracy, and a further escalation of violence. The Catholic price, who was soon named The Holy Roman Emperor, would respond by Force by using this newly acquired imperial army. The Bohemians, with support from Austrian nobility and the Ottoman Turks, would not back down, and full scale continental war would commence. This new escalation of violence would begin in 1620, as two new forces would join in the war effort.
