The Peace of Kaaden was a treaty of peace signed at Kaaden on the Eger in Bohemia on 29 June 1534, by Philip of Hesse and King Ferdinand of Austria, by which Duke Ulrich of Württemberg regained his land. This treaty was of great importance to Lutheranism by sanctioning for Württemberg the achievements of the peace of Nürnberg; "but all Sacramentists, Anabaptists, and all other new unchristian sects. . . shall not be tolerated in the land." Thereby Anabaptists were for several centuries prohibited from living in Württemberg, although this law was not strictly enforced.
