L'alliance franco-anglaise contre Philippe V: Le droit au service de l'ordre ?

Onderzoeksoutput: Conference paper


Philip V's foreign policy was met with opposition by the Regent and Cardinal Dubois. This lead to the armed intervention in Spain in 1719. However, military action would have been impossible without a close alliance with Britain and Hanover. This link between James Stanhope and Guillaume Dubois has hitherto been explained in terms of personal animosity and court struggles. Yet, this overlooks the importance of the legal quarrel on the Spanish Succession (1659-1713) and the consequences of the solution chosen at the Treaties of Utrecht, Rastatt and Baden (1713-1714). I argue that Philip's irredentist demands to make up for the perceived "loss" of Italy and Flanders were legally incompatible with the backbone of European diplomacy. Partition implied much more than a merely political deal.
