The Battle of Breitenfeld was the first major Protestant victory in the Thirty Years' War.
In late August 1631, the Imperial Commander Johann Tserclaes, Graf von Tilly invaded Saxony in hopes of forcing the ruler of the Electorate of Saxony, John George I to abandon an alliance he planned to conclude with Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden.
Gustavus Adolphus responded by uniting his army with the elector's forces, hoping to fight Tilly and force him to leave Saxony.
