  • After losing 2 wars, the Protestants finally win against the Catholics, even though the Swedish king was killed during the battle of Lutzen (november, 1632). Sadly the Protestants were demoralized by the loss and the Hapsburg were able to reagain some of their territory back they lost.
  • Many say that the French won (which they are Protestant) because by the Peace of Prague (May, 1635) German Protestants states won religious concessions from the emperor and gave agreed to stop fighting.
