La Gazette 1634: Historical News Today

Esteemed Readers, the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648) will end only in 1648! Can you imagine there are 14 years ahead full of battles, negotiations, false promises & faithful knights serving to their Lords? Meanwhile, here are some fresh European tidings of June 1634:

Florence, the 1st of June, 1634: “Sieurs de la Gerardesa, the Bishop of Frizola & Salviati, the Bishop of S.Sepulcra have deceased here. The Great Duke (of Tuscany) has appointed Don Juan de Medici, the Marquis de S.Ange the Governor of Pisa & the Sur-Intendant of all the fortresses in Tuscany…”

Milan, the 2nd of June, 1634: “The Marquis de Caravesana, the Ambassador Extraordinary of the Duke de Savoy at the Emperor, has departed from here. He is on his way to Vienna. He has not managed to deliver the promise given to the Cardinal Infante to settle controversial issues between  his Lord & the Republic of Genova. The Duchess de Fèria has left as well. She is going to Spain with all her family…”

Prague, the 7th of June, 1634: “Not long ago the King of Hungary begged the Elector 0f Saxony in his letters to send his Deputies to Leutmaris to conclude the Treaty of Peace. It was done provided he would obtain proposals & would respond to them. Meanwhile the State prisoners are still at Budweis; their permanent (legal) defence & the King of Hungary’s sudden depart divided the judgement’s opinion concerning their execution…”

Vive le Roy!🎉🎉🎉
