Hanseatic Day

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hanseatic Day (also known as the “all- Hanseatic day trip”) is the meeting of representatives of the Hanseatic cities to deal with all important community matters.


The Hanseatic Congress was the highest instance and the organ of the community on which its interests were negotiated, decided and enforced. This includes in particular the ratification of treaties, the negotiation of trade privileges, negotiations with foreign rulers, decisions about peace, war and economic blockades, the determination of economic regulations and the acceptance or exclusion from the community.

In addition to the Hanseatic Days, third and regional days were held to clarify regional issues.

Besides the Hanseatic League, there were no other organizational structures of the Hanseatic League, it communicated directly with the members of the urban community. The organizational form of the Hanse is therefore also understood as a flat, horizontally structured network.

Each to conclude a Hanse day, a session log (which was Hanserezess ) created with the meeting results and decisions and handed over to the Council emissaries for their cities as a copy. The Hanseatic Trials, which document the political decision-making processes of the Hanseatic League, are of great value for historical research, but they were only published up to and including 1537.

The first meeting of the Hanseatic cities, at which representatives of the cities from all three thirds met, took place in Lübeck in 1356 , it is therefore referred to as the first general Hanseatic day . City alliances, such as the Wendish and Westphalian city associations , existed 100 years earlier, and they coordinated their common interests on day trips. The first entry of a Hanseatic day in Hanserecesse Volume 1 from 1256 reports on a meeting in Wismar at which a dispute between the cities of Lübeck and Rostock was to be settled. A first meeting of two city alliances took place in 1305, to which Lübeck, on behalf of the Wendish cities, invited the Westphalian cities to go on a day trip together. It was the beginning of the general assemblies of the Hanseatic cities and also marks the transition from the merchant's to the Hanseatic league of cities .

The preferred meeting place of the Hanseatic League was Lübeck due to its primacy and geographic location. Between 1356 and 1480, 76 of the 111 Hanseatic Days took place in Lübeck (with three thirds as well as two thirds participating). It was also mainly Lübeck that took the initiative to convene a Hanseatic League.

The participation of the members in the Hanseatic Days was mostly low, as a rule only 10 to 12 cities were represented by their council messengers. The largest number was 39 delegations in 1447, barely half the total. One of the main evils was the no-show because the cities wanted to save the travel expenses for the MPs. Failure to attend was repeatedly punished with fines. In addition to the council messengers, high-ranking guests such as the emperor, archbishop or prince were invited to the Hanseatic Day.

Today there are two meanings: the (historical) Hanseatic Days, on which the resolutions of the medieval and early modern Hanseatic League were made, and the Hanseatic Days of the Modern Age .

Hanseatic days from 1356 to 1669

In the following, the Hanseatic days as well as the city days from the beginning of the first Hanseatic day in 1356 to the last Hanseatic day in 1669 in Lübeck are tabulated. Special resolutions and their chronological order in the history of the Hanseatic League and its member cities are noted.

Lübisches third , Lübeck, Hamburg and Stralsund ;
Westphalian-Prussian third , Dortmund , Soest , Thorn and Elbing ;

First general Hanseatic day :

The most important decision at the Hanseatic Day was the decision to send an embassy under the leadership of the Lübeck councilor Jakob Pleskow and representatives of the three Hanseatic thirds to Bruges to negotiate with the Count of Flanders over simmering disputes between Flanders and German merchants. The negotiations that took place in Bruges on June 12, 1356 did not, however, achieve the desired goals. In contrast, the previously independent German office in Bruges was brought under the control of the Hanseatic cities. The Recess zu Bruges of June 12, 1356 contains the list of the elderly people of Bruges along with their places of origin over three pages.

Aug 4, 1356 Lübeck Negotiations on disputes between Kampen and the cities of Stralsund, Rostock and Wismar , which could be ended with an arbitration award from Lübeck and Greifswald.

Prussian cities : Thorn and Elbing. The Westphalian and Livonian cities were missing.
Because of the violation of trade privileges in Flanders, an economic blockade against all of Flanders, including the cities of Antwerp and Mechelen , was decided. Due to the continuing shortage of grain, in particular, Flanders accepted the Hanseatic League's demands in a peace treaty in 1360, which ended the blockade. The victory of the Hanseatic League in the economic war against Flanders was seen as a sign of the assertiveness of the united urban community.
Aug 3, 1358 Lübeck Bremen accepts the conditions for admission to the Hanseatic League in Lübeck before the assembly of the Wendish cities. These include providing a warship with 50 armed men to defend the Öresund and a ship with 100 armed men to defend the Elbe (Hamburg). Should Bremen merchants violate an imposed blockade, they would lose their goods and their lives. In 1275 Bremen was excluded because of refusal to participate in the blockade against Norway.

Aug 1, 1361 Greifswald Shortly before the Greifswald assembly, the Swedish islands of Öland ( Borgholm ) and Gotland were attacked and subdued by the army of the Danish king Waldemar IV . The battle of Visby on Gotland took place on July 27, 1361. When the city was stormed, 1,800 citizens who defended themselves against the attackers were killed, the large warehouses were plundered and almost the entire city was destroyed.

The Hanseatic League decided to cut trade links with Denmark and to prepare and finance a war against Denmark . For this purpose, a duty of four pfennigs per pound should be levied on the ships and the exported goods of the Hanseatic cities. The domination of the Baltic Sea by the Danes associated with the occupation of parts of Sweden, Scania and Gotland was to be broken. Treaties were signed against Denmark between the Wendish cities and the kings Hakon of Norway and Magnus Sweden, as well as the Duke of Schleswig and the Count of Holstein. The kings should provide 2,000 armed men with the necessary ships. The armament of the seaside cities: Lübeck 600 men, 2 cogs, 6 Sniggen (large and small warships) and 2 throwing machines, Hamburg 200 men and 2 cogs, the urban communities of Rostock and Wismar, Stralsund and Greifswald as well as Kolberg, Stettin and Anklam 600 men each, 6 cogs, 6 snigs and 2 throwing machines, Bremen 100 men and 1 cog, Kiel 30 men, 1 ship and 10 barges.
The Hanseatic cities had met several times since the Hanseatic Day on September 7, 1361 in Greifswald, but no information was available about this.
Oct 8, 1362 Stralsund

It was the time when the Hanseatic League waged war against Denmark ( First Waldemark War ). The fight was supposed to begin on November 11, 1361, but was postponed to March 27, 1362. In April 1362, the Hanseatic fleet with 52 ships, including 27 cogs, ran into the Öresund under the leadership of Lübeck's mayor Johann Wittenborg. Count Heinrich von Holstein is also named as the leader of the fleet (according to Hanserecesse Volume 1, p. 199, it is unclear what management duties both had). At the beginning of May 1362 the fleet reached Copenhagen, the city and the castle were captured and sacked. The fleet landed in Skåne and besieged Helsingborg . Since there was no support from the Nordic allies, the Hanseatic League, with its approximately 1500 crews, decided to besiege Helsingborg from land. The ships left behind with a weak crew were attacked by Waldemar IV on July 18, 1362 and 12 large cogs were captured.

Johann Gletzow, Rathmann zu Wismar was used as a captain on Borgholm for a year.

Further resolutions were postponed to the meeting on February 5, 1363 in Rostock.

The meeting had received news from Count Heinrich von Holstein, according to which the Danes had not yet confirmed the standstill of 9 September 1362. The assembly then passed on to the knight Viko Moltke the request to ratify the standstill and to meet the conditions for the prisoners. The Prussian cities complained about the disadvantage in the standstill negotiations regarding the Prussian prisoners and resisted the continuation of a pound duty levied on October 8, 1362, which was to be paid until June 1363.

Attempts were made at the Hanseatic Day to deal with the charges against Johann Wittenborg, who had led the Hanseatic fleet in the war against Denmark in 1362 and had lost twelve cogs to the Danes during the siege of Helsingborg. But he was sentenced to death by the Lübeck council, which was publicly carried out in September 1363 on the Lübeck market.

Heinrich and Nikolaus, Counts of Hostein, report to the cities that the conclusion of the peace by Denmark would be prevented, the cities should therefore warn the king. The King of Sweden declares to the cities that he is ready to join the peace made by the Hanseatic League with the Danish king. If Denmark breaks the peace, Sweden counts on the help of the cities. Wisby asks the cities whether it was included in the peace that was made and whether it is under the general protection of the Hanseatic League.

Many of these messengers also had powers of their neighboring cities.
Allowing the Hanseatic Day to take place in Cologne was of particular importance, especially since it only took place once in Cologne. The Dutch-Zeeland cities, which had not yet participated in a Hanseatic Day, should be able to make day trips easier due to their proximity to Cologne, as they should also be involved in the waging of a war against Denmark . For the war effort, the cities formed a closer alliance, the Cologne Confederation . The Westphalian cities, on the other hand, stayed away from the Hanseatic League. They did not want to share in the financial burdens of the war, this naval war was none of their business.

As a military measure for the war against Denmark, the following was decided. The Wendish and Livonian cities were to have 10 cogs, 100 armed men, 2 barges and 2 snakes; the six Prussian cities provide 6 cogs and the cities of Campen, Zuiderzee and Zeeland 4 cogs. Each cog should be manned by 20 armed men who are good marksmen. The cogs from the Zuidersee should be ready to sail by Easter 1368 and should gather on the Norwegian coast and sail together into the sound. The fleet of the Baltic Sea cities was supposed to gather at Hiddensee and sail towards the fleet from the Zuidersee in the Sund. Cities that do not follow this agreement should be excluded from trade and ports of the Hanseatic League for 10 years. To finance the war expenditure it was decided to raise a pound duty , which should be levied on every merchant. B. Ingestion of 4 Lübeck pfennigs out of 6 Lübeck marks. Damages suffered by the cities in the two realms should also be compensated. This confederation and its provisions were to remain in force for three years until peace was concluded with Denmark.

Dec 8, 1367 Lübeck Stralsund (Bertram) Stralsund - in the main line of warfare - was commissioned to communicate the resolutions passed to the cities of Hamburg, Bremen, Kiel, Stettin, Kolberg and Anklam.

The industrial city of Braunschweig was one of the large northern German cities that had grown rich through copper mining in Rammelsberg . The craftsmen, who had formed guilds , sought more rights and representation in the council in the cities, which in Braunschweig had repeatedly led to uprisings against the patriciate ( large class ). When in 1374 the taxes were to be increased for the Braunschweig craftsmen to pay off the city's high debt, several council members were slain and the patrician rule was eliminated.

Braunschweig were then expelled from the Hanseatic League at the Lübeck Hanseatic Congress on the grounds that the council members were killed through no guilt. Furthermore every merchant of the Hanseatic League was forbidden to trade with Braunschweig. / 1, 539 /.

In the struggle for power in the three Scandinavian countries, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, Mecklenburg waged a caper war against Denmark, which also affected the Hansa ships. The port cities of Rostock and Wismar were the starting points of the pirates, where the ships were equipped and armed. The pirate drivers known as Vitalienbrüder drove at their own risk and account. The pressure of the Hanseatic League on both cities to put a stop to piracy was unsuccessful. The fight against the rampant piracy was decided at the Hanseatic Day. For two years, a pound duty was to be levied on the goods traded in the ports of the Hanseatic League in order to arm the Hanseatic warships.

With the increasing trade in bulk goods such as salt, grain and wood, the merchant ships got bigger and bigger. This also resulted in a greater draft of the ships, which increased the risk of the ships running aground in the ports. In contrast to the sea ports, this affected the inland cities with their smaller ports, which resisted this development. As a consequence, ships of different sizes were built.

When the Dutch ships increasingly appeared in the Baltic Sea, the Hanseatic League decided to prohibit the sale of ships abroad, which was regularly renewed in the following period. As a consequence, the shipyards lost valuable customers and, on the other hand, it promoted shipbuilding in other countries.
