La Gazette: Historical News Today – 1631

Esteemed Readers, we go on with the historical news. Here are some other events happened in Europe during 1631:

Vienne April 10, 1631: ‘Yesterday Baron Hegenmiller was sent as an Ambassador to the Duke of Saxe. Any day now we are expecting to receive here another celebre visitor from Poland. Germany has never been more perplexed. The city Magistrate obliges us to prepare some provisions foe a year ahead. For that we are shorter of money than of barns & our desire to fill them. We hope that God will help us. That’s why we make 40-hours prayer more often & have doubled the number of processions.Due to that reason we have established peace with Italy. And according to those who write us (on the war’s topic) Spain has not won this war either. Mockers state that  on this occasion the Emperor was too sad to change his robes for garments of a stranger, which are, moreover, not in his style.’

Camp near Magdebourg (an important battle field of the year) 16 May, 1631: ‘Our siege is becoming disastrous & if the King of Sweden is late for at least 3 days, it will be too late, because we already stay in their trenches from where we mine their ramparts. They have not done anything remarkable since the sortie on the 9th of this month. That time they were bravely pushed back & moved to their lairs, lost 26 good men. A Major Sergeant & a Colonel were among them.’

Vive le Roy! 🙂
