The Brothers of the Sword become the Livonian Order.

to map

1237

After the defeat in the Battle of Schaulen, the Brothers of the Sword were incorporated into the Teutonic Knights, becoming the Livonian branch of the Teutonic Order.

This, however, changed the power balance in Livonia, as unlike the Brotherhood, the Livonian Order did not subject to the biship of Riga, but to he High Master of the Teutonic Order, whose only superior was the Pope.

This created the basis for the latter confrontations over the supremacy in Livonia between the bishops of Riga (later - the archbishops) and the Order.
