Peace of Teusina

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Through the Peace of Teusina, Sweden acquired Northern Finland (white)

In the Peace of Teusina ( Swedish freden i Teusina , Russian Тявзинский мирный договор, Finnish Täyssinän rauha ), the border between Sweden and Russia was redefined on May 18, 1595 .

The eponymous place was a settlement on the right bank of the Narva , called Тя́взино in Russian , Teusina in Swedish , Täyssinä in Finnish , Tjavzino in Estonian , opposite the then Swedish fortress and city of Narva , today in the urban area of Ivangorod .


The Peace of Teusina ended a 25-year armed conflict between the two empires, which is referred to in Swedish historiography as the Nordic Twenty-Five Years War ( Nordiska tjugofemårskriget , 1570–1595). The Karelia border, which had been in force since the Treaty of Nöteborg in 1323 , was shifted eastwards in favor of Sweden. The new border now ran east of the Olafsburg and the village of Kainuu. In return, Sweden had to forego some of the territories it had conquered in Ingermanland .

Follow-up contract

A year and a half later, Sweden conquered these areas again and finally enforced the Peace of Stolbowo in 1617 .


The demarcation forms the framework for the film Sauna by the Finn Antti-Jussi Annila .
