Schmalkaldic War

Remigiusz Smolinski

The Schmalkaldic War is a three-party negotiation that is set within the tumultuous times following the start of the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. Faced with a military insurrection in what will become known as the Schmalkaldic War, Charles V, the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire has called a meeting with Pope Paul III and Duke Moritz of Saxony to discuss the formation of a military coalition to defeat this threat and to agree on each country’s contribution to the military campaign. However, since their resources are limited, they will need to negotiate shrewdly to ensure they have a coalition strong enough for victory but also one that does not bankrupt their respective treasuries.
