The Battle of Lützen was one of the most important battles of the Thirty Years' War, which began with the Second Defenestration of Prague in 1618 and ended with the Peace of Westphalia in 1648. Though losses were about equally heavy on both sides, the battle was a Protestant victory, but cost the life of one of the most important leaders of the Protestant alliance, the Swedish King Gustavus Adolphus, which caused the Protestant campaign to lose direction. The Imperial field marshal Pappenheim was also killed. Strategically, the loss of Gustavus Adolphus meant the French became the dominant power in the "Protestant", or in their case, anti-Habsburg, alliance.
