German Peasants' War
The GERMAN PEASANTS\' WAR, GREAT PEASANTS\' WAR or GREAT PEASANTS\' REVOLT (German : Deutscher Bauernkrieg) was a widespread popular revolt in the German-speaking Europe from 1524 to 1525. It failed because of the intense opposition by the aristocracy, who slaughtered up to 100,000 of the 300,000 poorly armed peasants and farmers. The survivors were fined and achieved few, if any, of their goals. The war consisted, like the preceding Bundschuh movement and the Hussite Wars , of a series of both economic and religious revolts in which peasants and farmers, often supported by Anabaptist clergy, took the lead.
