German Peasants War (1525)
The German Peasants’ War (Der Bauernkrieg) was an uprising by laborers against the feudal system. At the peak of the Peasants’ War, 300,000 serfs and villagers were fighting across the German feudal states. Over 100,000 rebels died in their attempt to gain a better life. The name of Thomas Müntzer lives on. So does the infamy of Martin Luther in selling them down the drain though their cause was just and he had set them on in the first place.
