Battle of Almanburg

Movement of the armies of both sides throughout the battle. As you can see the Order became surrounded.

The Battle of Almanburg (1390) was a major battle of the Baltic Crusades and was a significant defeat for the Teutonic Order.

The Battle started following the failed Battle of More several days earlier by General Falstaf of the Teutonic Knights. It was one of the first Battles in Europe to use Hand Cannons.

Despite the Order's stronger and heavily trained infantry as well as a small supply of hand artillery, they lacked cavalry and became lost and outnumbered due to the native's knowledge of the land.

The battle resulted in the handing over of the Teuton's rule of Latvia and the Treaty of Novograd.
