After the religious wars which convulsed the Confederation were ended by the Second Peace of Kappel in 1531 the Swiss became increasingly absorbed by their own affairs. Yet the restoration of Duke Ulrich to Württemberg under the Peace of Kaaden (1534) created new uncertainty for the Confederation’s outlying associated member to the north, the imperial city of Rottweil. A feud between Catholic Rottweil and a local Protestant dynasty, the Landenbergs (backed by Duke Ulrich), saw a joint Swiss military expedition of Catholic and Protestant cantons come to Rottweil’s aid, though it was recalled. This was the last time the Swiss ventured into what had become foreign territory north of the Rhine.

Keywords:   Second Peace of Kappel, restoration of Duke Ulrich of Württemberg, Peace of Kaaden (1534), Rottweil, Landenberg dynasty, cross-confessional Swiss cooperation
