Historical background


In 1477, the death of Charles the Bold of Burgundy, the duchy was dismantled between France who blasted Burgundy itself and the House of Habsburg who blasted the Franche-Comté or county of Burgundy. In 1548 the county of Burgundy passes the Spanish branch of the Habsburgs and is incorporated into the circle of Burgundy (with Luxembourg, Brabant, Hainaut, Flanders, etc..). Louis XIV seized the county of Burgundy in 1668 but had to make at the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle. It should regain this county in 1674 and possession was confirmed in 1678 by the Treaty of Nijmegen.
