  Polish-Swedish War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chodkiewicz's own army, unpaid for years, abandoned him at last en masse in order to plunder the estates of their political opponents, leaving the hetman to carry on the war as best he could with a handful of mercenaries paid out of the pockets of himself and his friends.
Chodkiewicz, who was one of the magnates who remained loyal to the king, had to divide his attention between the rebellion against Sigismund in the Commonwealth (the rokosz of Zebrzydowski, 1606-1609) and a fresh invasion of Livonia by the Swedes led by Mansfeld in 1608.
Commonwealth was forced to cede Inflanty north of Dvina (Düna) river, and retained only a nominal control over Riga.
