War of the Grand Alliance

The War of the Grand Alliance, also called the War of the League of Augsburg and the Nine Years War, was fought from 1688 to 1697 between France under Louis XIV and a European coalition known first as the League of Augsburg and later (after 1689) as the Grand Alliance. At first England was to ally with France, but King James II was deposed in the Glorious Revolution, and his successor King William III joined the Grand Alliance against the French. The North American campaigns of this war were known in the English colonies as King William's War, also known as the French and Indian Wars. The war ended with the Treaty of Ryswick.
