8 November 1620. This was an early battle in the Thirty Years’ War (initially a religious  conflict between Protestants and Catholics in the Holy Roman Empire)  in which an army of 15,000 Bohemians and mercenaries under Christian of Anhalt were routed by 27,000 men of the combined armies of Ferdinand II, Holy Roman Emperor under Charles Bonaventure de Longueval, Count of Bucquoy and of the Catholic League under Johann Tserclaes, Count of Tilly at Bílá Hora, near Prague (now part of the city).[2] The battle marked the end of the Bohemian period of the Thirty Years’ War.
