The treaty of Stensby: Northern Estonia is returned to Denmark

to map

1238

The Brotherhood had been destroyed in the battle of Saule and in 1237 it had been joined to the Teutonic Order, thus creating the Livonian branch of the Teutonic Order - the Livonian Order. In 1238, the Order and the Danes met in Stensby. As Denmark had strengthened and the Order, as a newly created organization was still weak, it was decided that Northern Estonia will be returned to Denmark.

In return, the Order could keep Järvamaa county, but it had to promise not to build hill forts without the permission of the Danish king. In addition, mutual aid pact was signed, which was primarily aimed against the Russian principalities. In 1265, however, the Order broke his promise and build the fort of Paide to the border of Järvamaa.
