Battle of Murten
The Confederates advanced in the rain through the forest from Ulmiz on June 22nd 1476. In the beginning the Burgundians at the so-called “Grünhag” were a danger for the advancing guards of the Confederates. However, the storming of the guarded area started the retreating motion of the Burgundy forces.
Morat was in every sense a victory leaving no questions: For Petermann Etterlin, a participant of the battle, the important thing was that Charles had been defeated for the second time. More than 300 years later George Gordon Noel Byron drew parallels of the victory of the Confederates over Charles to that of the Athenians over the Persians in the Battle of Marathon.
