Looking for evidence of Christian IV involvement with his first cousin Elizabeth Stuart who was residing in The Hague with her husband Frederick V Elector of the Palatinate (briefly King of Bohemia. Also wish to learn if Capt John Cromwell of England (cousin of Oliver Cromwell, Protector)made a visit to Denmark 1625-1660 and had meeting with King Christian. My e-mail subject Capt John Cromwell.

Was this (or any of the other battles of this war) fought near Závada? I have references that mention such a battle. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 20:28, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

I think this all instances of Czech should be replaced by Bohemian, because the army consisted of primarily Bohemians as opposed to Moravians or Silesians. Edwin

Needs citation[edit]

This article is in need of major citation overhaul. I looked up the only cite listed and almost nothing that is in the article is in the citation. If this is a translation of another page, those citations needs to be ported, as well. Lorinhobenson (talk) 20:11, 28 November 2008 (UTC)


For POV concerns see feedback. Ryan Vesey Review me! 22:52, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

What do you mean by feedback? Shouldn't you be explaining your concerns on the talk page so they can be addressed? Rifter0x0000 (talk) 04:22, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Rifter0x0000: I agree with you, and I did check Ryan Vesey's talk page and I found no reference to this article. I am going to go ahead and remove the POV tag because I believe that needs more explanation. However, I do think it is important to leave the refimprov tag in the article since for one thing it may help clear up POV issues, and for another thing it is true in and of itself that it needs improvement. Although I am a contributor to WikiPedia, in this case I had no previous knowledge of the Battle of white Mountain, and I really have no POV one way or the other, and from my (self-proclaimed) otherwise disinterested perspective it appears to be a neutral if poorly referenced article. It does not seem to be particularly pro-Catholic or pro-Protestant, nor somehow implicitly putting Christianity on a pedestal above other religions. So I see no evidence of neutrality issue, at least as far as the core of what the article is about. Laurentian Shield (talk) 16:38, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
