France and Spain sign a Peace Treaty of Nijmegen, a counterpart to
that signed by the French and Dutch the previous month. In this
agreement, not only does France gain control of Franche-Comté, but
also acquires 14 towns including Valenciennes, Cambrai and Ypres,
effectively making up a line of fortifications from the Marne to
Dunkirk. In return, France restores Charleroi, Ghent and other
conquests in the Netherlands and Catalonia.
