  • After the sides arose in power, the Protestant Reformation and Counter-Reformations both began a Thirty Years' War between several European countries with different sides, including England, Germany, Spain, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Scotland and many more. The war lasted from 1618 to 1648, ending with the Peace of Westphalia.
