Treaty of Ryswick

The 1697 Treaty of Ryswick settled the War of the Grand Alliance or the War of the League of Augsburg (called King William's War in North America) which pitted France against the Grand Alliance of England, Spain, and the Netherlands. France under Louis XIV retained Strasbourg but returned other territories gained since 1679. By the treaty, Savoy was recognized as independent, and William III was recognized as King of England. The Netherlands received some commercial concessions.
