Battle of Worringen

A piece I did back in 2012 for Medieval Warfare Magazine.

I'm not steeped in German Medieval history but I believe Worringen was one of many battles fought amongst Germans and men of the "Low Countries" within the Holy Roman Empire. The politics and fragmented nature of the empire seem to land itself quite frequently to internal conflicts between its autonomous rulers. This particular battle is between the Duke of Brabant (left) and the Count of Luxembourg (right) over the possession of the Duchy of Limburg.

More info on the battle here >> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_o…

If any of you are interested you can check out the magazine here. Its a very interesting magazine if you're in to medieval history. >> [link]

Just saw this epic drawing of yours and I was happily surprised to read that it's about the Battle of Worringen. It's funny because it's often seen as the start of the rivalry between my hometown Düsseldorf and Cologne which is continued until today but more for fun than seriously :)
