Hungary / Holy Roman Empire

Hanso-Dutch War

  • April 7th : Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy permits the county of Holland to pirate the six Wendish cities of Hamburg , Lübeck , Lüneburg , Greifswald , Stettin and Anklam as well as the Duchy of Holstein .
  • April 23rd : The Hanseatic League informs its cities about an impending war with Holland and calls for the suspension of shipping to Flanders , Holland and Zealand .
  • Holland is not yet strong enough at sea to fight openly with Hanseatic League and has to limit itself to privateers. On the other hand, the Wendish cities remained on their own, because despite repeated requests from Lübeck, the other Hanseatic cities did not take part in the fighting.
  • 22 June : A Kaperflotte under Hendrik van Borsselen runs from Rotterdam from. Although he promised safe conduct to the Hanseatic cities that had remained neutral on the outward journey, he surprisingly ambushed a Prussian Baiens salt fleet near Brest and arrested 23 Prussian and Livonian ships. The eleven ships of the Wendish cities located there withdrew into port in good time when the pirate fleet appeared. The neutral Hanseatic cities are making claims for damages, but despite their outrage, they are not joining the war either. Rather, out of displeasure about the locking measures of the Wendish cities in the Sound, they arrest their goods in Prussia .
