Summary: 

This alludes to the battle of Breitenfeld near Leipzig, in which occupying Catholic forces were driven from Leipzig by protestants led by Gustavus Adolphus. The occupying troops had been enjoying rich plunder from the city and were satirically portrayed as being interrupted in the middle of a feast. "Der Loew" in the text refers to Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, who was described as the lion of the north.
