History of the Germans

Ep. 134 – Tannenberg / Grunwald / Žalgiris - A battle of many names

Jan. 18, 2024

This week we look at the reasons the golden age of the Teutonic knights came to an abrupt end at the beginning of the 15th century. It is a sequence of events that involve some remarkable Polish and Lithuanian princes, the Templars, and  of course – The brothers of the house of St. Mary of the Germans in Jerusalem. Ah, and a very famous battle.

To make it easier for you to share the podcast, I have created separate playlists for some of the seasons that are set up as individual podcasts. they have the exact same episodes as in the History of the Germans, but they may be a helpful device for those who want to concentrate on only one season.

So far I have:

The Ottonians:

The Hanseatic League

The Teutonic Knights

The Holy Roman Empire 1250-1356
