|First Margrave War|
|Brandenburg-Ansbach||Imp. City Nuremberg|
The First Margrave War (German: Erster Markgrafenkrieg) from 1449–52 was the result of disputes between the Free Imperial City of Nuremberg and Albrecht III Achilles, Elector of Brandenburg. Numerous towns in Franconia in modern Germany were badly affected by the war.
On 13 August 1449, Albert captured Castle Lichtenau, a Nuremberger possession. On 11 March 1450, Albert was defeated at Pillenreuther Weiher. The war ended with the signing of a peace treaty in Bamberg on 22 June 1450. Albert had to return all captured lands to the city of Nuremberg.
