mar 3, 1568 - Council of Blood

Description:

Fanatical Calvininsts had been attacking churches and libraries since two years before, so Philip II sent twenty thousands Spanish troops under the duke of Alva to pacify them, but Alva took that to mean as violently as possible. On top of the Inquisition that Margaret supervised, Alva opened his own tribunal in which on March 3 alone, 1,500 were executed (even Margaret was surprised and scared)
