His position in the area was greatly strengthened by the appointment of his family members in the bishoprics of Bremen, Verden, Schwerin and Halberstadt, and resulted in his own election 70 Johan Jørgensen, ‘Denmark’s Relations with Lübeck and Hamburg in the Seventeenth Century’, Scandinavian Economic History Review, 11 (1963), 73–79; Albrectsen, Frandsen & Lind, Konger og krige, 376–8. 71 Although sovereignty was claimed on the Weser and all ships had to strike their colours in recognition of this, no attempt was made to levy tolls there (Kancelliets Brevbøger, 8 July 1625).

A modest Polish navy was built up in the 1620s during the war with Sweden, but the main fleet was transferred to the Imperial Habsburg navy in Wismar in 1629. It did still have a small fleet in the 1630s, which it used to enforce the levy of tolls on shipping entering Danzig. This clearly violated Denmark’s claims of sovereignty.

29 This allowed, to some extent, for the navy to be maintained in what amounted to a state of armed neutrality. By the mid-1630s Christian IV was in a position to resume his aggressive attitude to Baltic politics. 31 The negotiations leading to the Peace of Prague in May 1635, which would have significantly strengthened the Imperial position in northern Germany, could also have also been a factor in Christian IV’s thinking. In any case the Swedish-Polish truce was renewed and the peace of Prague proved to be elusive.
