Politics and world events


Peter I of Portugal


  • Spring: The discontent in France , which was sparked by a coin valuation ordered by him, forces the Dauphin Karl , who has been regent for a year , to return from Metz to Paris . On a stand day , he accepted the reform program of Étienne Marcels , head of the Paris Trade Guild , against his father's orders . It thus allows the formation of a council composed of the cantons, which is to be involved in the political decision-making of the crown. The French state adopts a constitutional constitution for the first time, for which Karl receives a special tax of five million livres from the estates. In the same year he succeeds in negotiating an armistice with England in the Hundred Years War , although northern France continues to be haunted by mercenary gangs.
  • November 9th : Charles II of Navarre , who is in French captivity, manages to escape. According to other sources, he will be released. He quickly re-established contact with the allied English.

Johanna of Brabant

  • The Vogtland War , which began in 1354 , ends with the devastating defeat of the bailiffs of Weida , Gera and Plauen against Emperor Karl IV. In the course of the war, at least sixty castles in the Vogtland are said to have been destroyed. The bailiffs had little to counter the act of violence, also because of the increasing debts. As a result of the war, the Plauen bailiffs lost almost all of their property. The cities of Mylau and Reichenbach of the younger line fall to the Bohemian king, and they have to recognize the Wettins as rulers of the rest of the property. The Gera bailiffs must also recognize the Wettins as masters. The Weida bailiffs lose their city of Hof and the Regnitzland to the burgraves of Nuremberg . The governors are increasingly sinking into political insignificance, and the title is slowly dying out.
