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 is quite limited beyond his direct domains and the erratic and inconsistent behavior of some of them as Rudolph II increases 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 form the Evangelic Union to defend their freedom. The count of Oldenburg, however, stayed neutral.
