Nikolaus Krell, former Chancellor of Saxony, is executed after a
six-year trial. As Chancellor, he had pursued pro-Calvinist
policies and a foreign policy that turned away from loyalty to the
Habsburgs, instead acting in concert with John Casimir, Henry IV of
France and Elizabeth I of England. These unpopular policies, along
with his autocratic methods, had earned him the unpopularity that
had led to his trial.
