Description

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, such increased frictions. In 1608, the Protestant city of Donauwerth refused Catholics the right to practice their cult and was banned from the Empire. As a reaction, most German Protestant states formed the Evangelic Union to defend their freedom.

Description

In 1697, the 15 years old Charles XII ascended the Swedish throne. Seeing the opportunity, the Russian Czar Peter I allied with Denmark and Poland-Saxony in 1699. However, with British and Dutch naval assistance, Charles XII landed on Zealand and promptly defeated the Danes, then moved to Estland where his badly outnumbered Swedes (1 to 5) won a crushing victory over the Russians. Instead of finishing the Russians, Charles moved against August II of Poland-Saxony and drove him out of Poland in 1704 (having the pro-Swedish Stanislaw Leszczynski elected King), then subjugating Saxony in 1706. While the Russians started the construction of St-Petersburg (1703) and rebuilt their armies, they also took parts of Estland (1704-1706). Charles then decided to march to Moscow via the Ukraine where the Cossacks under Mazeppa had again risen in revolt (1708). The harsh winter and Russian raids decimated his army and he was finally beaten at the battle of Poltava in 1709. The wounded King escaped to the Ottomans. The Russians were encircled by the Ottomans on the Prut River, but Peter succeeded through bribery to obtain a safe conduct in exchange for Azov. While Charles was still exiled in Turkey, Russian, Danish, Hanoverian and even Prussian troops captured most of the Swedish territory around the Baltic. Having emerged from Turkish internment, Charles got killed in 1718 in front of the Norwegian fortress of Frederickshald. The peace treaties that followed Sweden lost most of her Baltic empire.

Action A of 159019 - The defeat at Ditmarsken for Denmark

Description

Following his victory at Stockholm King Hans allied with his brother Frederik of Holstein and attacked the minor peasant republic, Ditmarsken. The result was a humiliating defeat and while both Hans and Frederik managed to escape capture they lost their entire army. This was primarily due to the fact that the weather turned the roads into mud. This, combined with the fact that their heavy cavalry wasn't designed for fighting on the narrow roads, made the army useless.
