Northeast Europe

Pomeranian with Danzig as part of the Teutonic Order State
  • Margrave Waldemar von Brandenburg marches into Pomerellen , where the aristocratic family of the Swenzones has been rebelling against Polish rule since the previous year , and also takes the main fortress of Danzig . The few Polish garrison troops Władysław I. Ellenlangs entrench themselves in the castle directly in front of the city, where they are besieged by the Brandenburgers. The Pomeranian regional judge and castellan of the city of Danzig then called the Teutonic Order for help. A relief army of the Teutonic Knights under Heinrich von Plötzke and Günther von Schwarzburg reached the castle in August, whereupon the Brandenburgers gave up the siege without a fight and withdrew.
  • However, the townspeople continue to resist and will be besieged by Polish garrison troops from September. During the siege, the besiegers quarrel about their remuneration. Władysław I. refuses to pay the knights 10,000 silver marks for their help. The Poles finally leave and the Teutonic Order continues the siege alone.
  • November 13th : With the takeover of Danzig by the Teutonic Order , the city is incorporated into the Teutonic Order state . How many people are killed in the storm is still controversial today.
