Louis XIV, the Habsburgs and the War of Spanish Succession

Louis XIV, the epitome of the absolute monarch in Europe, had one goal: to strengthen France’s position in Europe. As his quest for power gained momentum, rivalry with the Habsburgs proved inevitable. It led to numerous conflicts between the two powers in the seventeenth century, culminating with the War of the Spanish Succession, triggered by Louis XIV’s decision to impose one of his grandsons as king of Spain. His ultimate victory over the Habsburgs marked the end of France encirclement.
