Archbishopric of Mainz, Adolph II of Nassau, 1461 - 1475
In 1459 Adolph was defeated in the election to the Archbishopric of Mainz by Theodoric of Isenburg-Büdingen. In 1461, following Theodoric's confrontational reforms, Pope Pius II declared Adolph the archbishop. When the city of Mainz and its and cathedral chapter remained loyal to Theodoric, Adolph declared war. The devastating Mainzer Feud continued for a year until Adolph captured the city on 28 October 1462. He had about 400 citizens killed, and another 400 fled. Adolph revoked Mainz's privileges and the status as an Imperial City. Adolph died in Eltville in 1475 and was buried in the Eberbach Abbey.
