Answer:

Many countries became protestant some later became Catholic again in the Counter Reformation.

Explanation:

France became mainly protestant, but protestantism was declared illegal and the lives and property of the protestants were to be freely taken by the government and Catholics.. Many French Protestants fled to South Africa with the Dutch.

Poland also became protestant for a time. The Counter Reformation turned the country back to Catholism without the violence that the Protestants experience in France.

Germany of course became Luther, along with Sweden and Norway.
Armies from Catholic Spain and France invaded Germany in an effort to militarily stamp out Protestantism. Military action had stamped out earlier religious movements away from the Catholic church in France, England and the Czech Republic.

The Netherlands along with Switzerland became Calvinist nations.

England became Angilican a from very similar to Catholism but without recognizing the authority of the Pope. While Scotland became Calvinistic like Holland.

Northern Italy had the Walldenians who had been "Protestant" since the second century AD. and remained so during the Protestant Reformation.
