Duke-Elector JOHN GEORGE I. (1611-1656) was concerned to get the Swedish occupation troops leave his country, which was achieved when the contributions Sweden was promised in the Treaty of Westphalia had been paid (1650).
However, Saxony was in a better position as many other territories which had suffered severe damage during the war, as its soil was extraordinarily rich and the country was rich in mines.
Saxony signed a treaty with Venice, 'lending' 3,000 of her troops to the maritime republic for two years in return for Venetian suubsidies - the Venetians conquered Morea.
