Switzerland Timeline

1653 Peasant's War
Revolt of the rural population between Lucerne and Bern against the undemocratic rule of the cities. The rebels are defeated and severely punished.

Switzerland had the strongest and most feared army (mainly constituting of peasants!) as well as some of the bloodiest wars in Europe before becoming neutral for economic and political stability. Their pikemen were legendary.
