Politics and world events


Tower of the castle of Paide
  • May 4th : Negotiations begin between the insurgents and the Order of the Brothers of the Sword in the castle of Paide about the redesign of Estonia. During the trial, however , the order master Burchard von Dreileben had the four leaders of the rebels executed by the sword.
  • 11 / May 14 : The Estonians are in the battles of Kimmole and Kanavere against the troops of the Livonian Order. All Estonian leaders are killed. A Swedish-Finnish support force under Dan Nilsson , the governor of Turku, arrived too late at Tallinn on May 18 to come to the aid of the Estonians. After negotiations with the Brothers of the Sword, the Swedish-Finnish troops withdraw without a fight. The uprising has thus been suppressed on the Estonian mainland. As a result of the uprising, all the important cities in Estonia, which had been Danish until then, fell into the hands of the militarily and politically strengthened Order of the Brothers of the Sword.
  • July 24th : Another uprising breaks out on the island of Saaremaa , which is part of the Dominion of the Order of the Swords . The church fortress Pöide is taken by the Estonian rebels. Settlers of German origin and foreign merchants on the island are killed or expelled.
