France and Prussia sign the Treaty of Breslau, planning a partition of the Holy Roman Empire, in the wake of the breakdown of Frederick's negotiations with Maria Theresa. Prussia is to receive Breslau and Lower Silesia and, in return, to recognise Charles Albert of Bavaria as Emperor and to recognise the Sulzbachs in the whole of Jülich-Berg.
