The War of 1749 ends.

The battle of Bergwald was a disaster for the Altstein army which was thoroughly demoralised and fell back in utter disarray.

This defeat persuaded Ludwig to ask the Duchess Katarina for peace and the suitable diplomatic moves were made on his behalf.
The Duchess was much relieved by this and accepted Ludwig’s offer unconditionally ( perhaps somewhat naively).
Fritz von Essling was recalled from Altstein territory and honoured in a victory parade by the Iron Fortress itself.

Thus the war of 1749 ended. What might the new year bring?.
