Siege of Braunschweig, 1615




In 1615 Duke Friedrich Ulrich of Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel laid siege to the city of Braunschweig (the second siege after 1605/1606). Hanseatic & Dutch relief forces broke the siege.
In 1671 the Duke of Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel would try again, this time with allies, and the defenders without, and finally Braunschweig was forced to submit.
