Johann von Aldringer (also spelled Aldringen, 1588-1634) was an Austrian soldier. He served the Catholic cause for much of the Thirty Years' War. Eventually, he became Count Tilly's artillery commander, serving at the Battle of Breitenfeld and the Battle of Rain. Tilly died at the latter, and Aldringer succeeded him (although at the Battle of Rain proper, Aldringer was knocked unconscious quickly after assuming command). He was made field marshal at the Battle of Alte Veste, and was killed at the Battle of Landshut, which took place on July 22, 1634.

Johann von Aldringer in 1632Edit

Much as in the original timeline, Johann von Aldringer took command after Count Tilly was fatally injured at the Battle of Rain, but was quickly knocked unconscious.


Aldringer seems to disappear from the series after the Battle of Rain. If he was at the Alte Veste, as he had been in the OTL, he is not mentioned by name.

While it is conceivable that the altered course of the war would have allowed him to outlive his historical span, his fate in the NTL is unknown, and may be undetermined.
