Wars of Religion

The Wars of Religion in Europe began after the commencement of the Protestant Reformation in Western and Northern Europe. These Wars of religion were a streak of wars in Europe from 1524-1648. The Wars of Religion were fueled by the religious changes of the period and the rivalries that arose from said changes. Additionally, against common belief, not all of these wars were connected.
