Summary of my paper presented at the International Days of the Society for Legal and Institutional History of Flanders, Picardy and Wallonia (Arras: Citadelle Vauban/Université d'Artois, May 2018: The construction and deconstruction of territories, from Antiquity to Brexit). Jean Rousset de Missy's two-volume work on quarrels between European princes and polities is discussed, taking the diplomatic context after the Peace of Utrecht into account.
