Shortly after Hollands independence quest succeded, a strong alliance was formed. Friesland, determined to unite the Frisian people quickly declared a war of conquest against the small republic of East Frisia. The war did not last long, as East Frisia was in another war with all their troops located in northern France.
A few months after Frieslands march to Ostfriesland, the city fell in the hands of Friesland, ending the separation of the Frisian people.
The Frisians have long wanted to claim the north-western German coast for their own. As Hamburg had proceeded with their unrightful expansion against Verden, the Frisian government decided that it was time to put an end to their expansion.
On 1461, Friesland declared war against Hamburg. Holland, who earlier got support from Friesland decided to join in on the war. Friesland also had allied themselves with threatened neighbours of Hamburg such as Dithmarschen and Lüneburg.
The Hamburgers showed a good fight and the war turned out to be more difficult than Friesland had imagined. However, after the Frisian victory at the battle of Lübeck the Hamburg army was defeated. The siege of Hamburg took many months but they finally gave up.
Friesland demanded that Hamburg was to be ceded to Friesland and that the two provinces of the past Verden would be liberated.
The war ended and the Hamburger nation will remain nothing but a small dot in the ever developing history of our world.
The government of Friesland would like to thank their allies for their effort in the war and hope that we will continue to thrive in the many years to come.
