Wallenstein, commander of the imperial armies, attempts to establish his own authority in the Palatinate to find his own solution to the ongoing war, and to this end he opens negotiations with Axel Oxenstiern, Regent of Sweden. However, relations thus deteriorate between WaIlenstein and the Emperor Ferdinand II, who is less amenable to a negotiated peace.
