Guelderian Wars

In the short Guelders succession war, also called feud Guelders and feud Jülich. He is regarded as a milestone in the history of the Dutch-Lower Rhine area in which collided regional interests of the Jülich Duke Wilhelm V and the universal reign of the Emperor claim. The war lasted for almost three months and devastated large parts of the United Duchies. The applicable as impregnable city of Düren, whose defenses were modernized significantly in the years before, was conquered and destroyed by Charles V. The same fate shared the Duchy of Jülich-Kleve-to mountain belonging castle Nideggen. In the fighting around Düren besieged up to 61,000 imperial soldiers, the city in which only 3000 inhabitants and troops of the United Duchies were.

The Guelders succession war wins Emperor Charles V at the Battle of Düren a clear victory over Duke Wilhelm V, who must in the Treaty of Venlo (1543) completely submit to the Emperor and renounce in favor of Habsburg on all Guelders claims.

The duchy of Guelders, which falls in its entirety in 1543 at Habsburg, consists of four parts, the neighborhoods known as: Betuwe (The name “Betuwe” is derived from the Batavians. It is believed that the name of the composer Ludwig van Beethoven is derived from this landscape.), Arnheim (Veluwe), Zutphen and the south and economically the most important Quartermaster Roermond, in which the city Geldern is. After the division of the Empire of Charles V (1555/56) total Geldern coincides with the Netherlands to Spain, but remains in the German Reich. A few decades later, in the Dutch War of Independence (80 years war) go to the States-General of the Duchy of Geldern lost forever. 1648 are also constitutionally part of the Republic of the Netherlands and thus finally divorced from the National Association of. They are now by and large the Dutch province of Gelderland.
