Reversal of Alliances

Following two centuries of conflicts, empress Maria-Theresa and king Louis XV negotiated a spectacular reversal of alliances in 1756. Their new alliance was sealed with marriages, not least the union between Louis-Auguste, the heir to the French throne and the young archduchess Marie-Antoinette. Was the alliance beneficial to both parties? Despite some early diplomatic and military successes, the answer to that question is far from obvious.
