Separately published, based on the five sheet map of the river by Placide de Sainte Helene, published in Paris in 1704. - The War of the Spanish Succession was fought between the French and Spanish who wanted Philip of Anjou, grandson of the French King, to ascend to the Spanish throne, and the British, the Dutch and the Holy Roman Empire who feared the union of the French and Spanish crown and instead wanted Archduke Charles Of Austria, cousin of the recently deceased king of Spain to be his successor. The war began with the invasion of Lombardy in 1701 by the Austrians, and culminated with the complete defeat of the Franco-Spanish forces by 1707. This map appears to depcict the theatre of war from circa 1704 when Philip of Anjou was forced to leave Italy.
