The Revolt of the Brotherhoods (Germanies) in Majorca occurred between 1521 and 1523. This war of the guilds against the monarchy and nobility ended with the surrender of the brotherhoods in March 1523. In surrendering, the brotherhoods presented a form of peace offering to Carlos V, the Holy Roman Emperor. They pledged loyalty to Carlos, who was also Carlos I of Castile and Aragon. If they had hoped that they might be shown leniency, they were to be proven wrong. Some two hundred of their number were executed.
