Article description

Woodcut, uncolored as published. Original woodcut map from 1550, depicting the Imperial troops in front of the fortified city Ingolstadt in Bavaria during the Schmalkaldic War (1546 until 1547) on August 24th, 1546. Published in: ,Clarissimi viri D. Ludovici Ab Avila et Zunnica, Militiae Alcantarensis praefecti, Commentariorum de bello Germanico ...'. The Schmalkaldic War broke out in July 1546 in Swabia because several Lutharan Imperial cities occupied the Catholic town Füssen, which was in possession of the Augsburg bishop. The Emperor knew, that he could play for time and did not accept the battle. He entrenched himself with his troops rather in his positions, the mighty fortress Ingolstadt in the back. The Protestant army did not dare to attack the well-guarded positions and therefore broke off the siege of Ingolstadt after a few days. The consideration of the Bavarian neutrality may have played a role in this decision.
