Historical background



Charles VI (1/10/1685-20/10/1740) is the second son of Leopold I (1657-1705) and was initially unhappy competitor of Philip V to the Spanish throne (1700-1714). Emperor on the death of his brother Joseph I in 1711, he gave to Spain in 1714 with the Treaty of Rastatt but retained the Austrian Netherlands. Charles VI had no male child. His daughter Marie-Thérèse was born in 1717. He issued the Pragmatic Sanction in 1713 that would allow her daughter to the throne after his death and he made him marry Francis III of Lorraine in 1736 who renounced his duchy to the hypothetical imperial crown he will not get that 'in 1745. When Charles VI died in 1740, the War of Austrian Succession began to guarantee the rights of his daughter Maria Theresa and her son, Francis of Lorraine. The war lasted eight years.
