  • Editors


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.
