The Battles of Villmergen were two battles between Reformed and Catholic Swiss cantons. They occurred on January 24, 1656 and July 24, 1712 at Villmergen, Canton of Aargau, Switzerland. The first battle followed an attempt at a reform of the federation in 1655, failing due to Catholic resistance. Zurich urged its allies to declare war on the Catholic cantons.
