War, Revolt, Leadership
The 1653 Peasant War can be subdivided in the following phases:
The beginning of the rebellion in the Entlebuch Valley, Canton
Lucerne. The massive popular revolt under the leadership of Niklaus
Leuenberger, chairman of the “League of Huttwil,” as of the
signing of the Oath of Huttwil [Bundesbrief] with the aim
of a renewal of the Oath of Rütli of 1291 [author’s remark],
through to the conclusion of the Murifeld Peace Treaty.
