Short Note This is a short note

France recognises the Pragmatic Sanction at the definitive Peace Treaty of Vienna. The terms, which had been agreed at the 1735 preliminaries, are as follows: Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI receives Parma and Piacenza. Don Carlos is to succeed (as Charles III) to Naples and Sicily, which are, however, not to be united under one crown with Spain. Charles Emannuel III of Savoy is to hold Novara and Tortona. France guarantees the Pragmatic Sanction. Stanislaus renounces his claims to Poland and is recompensed by a promise of Lorraine when the Grand Duke of Tuscany dies. The Duke of Lorraine is to receive Tuscany and Bar when the Grand Duke dies.
