The Russians besiege Paide for the third time

to map

October 1570

In autumn 1570 when Tallinn was taken to the siege circle, the smaller troop of the Russians and Duke Magnus also arrived under Paide.

This was besieged probably more seriously since October, but as in case of Tallinn, no more serious attempt to conquer it was made. Slightly before when the Russians stopped the siege of Tallinn, they also left Paide, probably in March 1571.
