Swedish setbacks in Estonia

to map

1701

After the departure of King's forces, Estonia was defended only by few garrisons and a small foreign force. Russians, however, had gained reinforcements and moved across the border. In the following years the Eastern part of Estonia was conquered and in 1704 Tartu and Narva fell to the Russian forces.
