PostSubject: War of the Austrian Succession   Sat Jan 08, 2011 7:21 pm

The War of the Austrian Succession (174048) also known as King George's War in North America, and incorporating the War of Jenkins' Ear with Spain and two of the three Silesian wars involved nearly all the powers of Europe, except for the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Portuguese Empire and the Ottoman Empire. The war began under the pretext that Maria Theresa of Austria was ineligible to succeed to the Habsburg thrones of her father, Charles VI, because Salic law precluded royal inheritance by a woman, though in reality this was a convenient excuse put forward by Prussia and France to challenge Habsburg power.[citation needed] Austria was supported by Great Britain and the Dutch Republic, the traditional enemies of France, as well as the Kingdom of Sardinia and Saxony. France and Prussia were allied with the Electorate of Bavaria. The war ended with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748. The most enduring military historical interest and importance of the war lies in the struggle of Prussia and the Habsburg monarchs for the region of Silesia[citation needed]. It also re-established Spanish influence in northern Italy, further reversing an Austrian dominance over the Italian peninsula that was achieved at the expense of Spain as a consequence of that country's own war of succession earlier in the 18th century.
