First war between the archbishop of Riga and the Order

to map

1297

In 1297, first more serious civil war began in Livonia, when the Order found itself in a conflict with the town of Riga and the archbishop.

The Order and the archbishop had been quarreling for a long time, but no military conflict had happened before. Now, full scale civil war began, that, with minor breaks, lasted until 1330.

During this period, the archbishop allied with the pagan Grand Duke of Lithuania, Gediminas; the Order plundered mercilessly the bishopric and the town of Riga.

Ultimately, the Order won: the town of Riga was subjected to the Order, and the archbishop could not press the vassalage onto the Order.
