France and Sweden sign the Treaty of Barwalde. By its terms, France
agrees to subsidise Sweden with one million livres per year for six
years. Armed with these funds, Gustavus II of Sweden now attempts
to win over Saxony and Brandenburg, but Elector John George of
Saxony is determined to remain neutral in the Thirty Years War. He
appeals to Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II to revoke the 1629 Edict
of Restitution and establish a new German religious settlement.
