The 30 years war bean because of the spreading protestant reformation. Many princes in Germany felt under control by charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, and so by becoming protestant they thought that they would have more power. Other countries, such as the French, sought to curb the power of the Holy Roman Empire and the Hapsburgs, even though they were a Catholic Country. Meanwhile, the Hapsburgs wanted to extend their power through the war. So basically, it was a war to gain land and power, but "religious" motivation was the mask of that.

No. The Thirty Years War, which stemmed from a religious conflict between Protestants and Catholics, did in fact last thirty years, from 1618-1648.

The Thirty Years' War began in Bohemia, where a group of Protestants took two Catholic officials and threw them from a window. This was known as The Defenestration. The officials survived the fall after landing in a pile of horse manure, and the Catholics declared that their survival was a miracle of the Virgin Mary.

The Thirty Years' War began in 17618 in Bohemia. At that time the Protestants were rebelling against their Hapsburg Catholic rulers. The Protestants elected as their king the Count Palatine of the Rhine who was a Protestant. The armed conflict heated up at its beginning when armies of the Catholic princes and the armies of Spain intervened.

There are actually a lot of things that are not results of the thirty years war, like the invention of computers. Why don't you use your textbook instead of cheating with the internet?
