Uprising in Läänemaa (Wiek)

to map

May 1343

Assumably, in the beginning of May, uprising began in Läänemaa. There is not much information about the incident, the chronicles mention that the Estonians sieged the bishops and the chapter in Haapsalu, but were unable to capture the town. In the second half of May, when the initial rebellion in Harjumaa had been banished, the Order arrived in Harjumaa, and repressed the revolt.
