Historical background


LORRAINE - FRANÇOIS III

(1/09/1715-10/05/1774)

François III (28/12/1708-17/08/1765) is the second son of Leopold Duke of Lorraine (1690-1727) and Elizabeth Charlotte d'Orléans, niece of Louis XIV. He succeeded his father 17 May 1729 but lived in Austria. At the end of the War of the Polish Succession, which began in 1733 and ended in 1735, it was decided that Francis III of Lorraine was to become the son of Charles VI by marrying his daughter, Marie-Thérèse, renounce the duchy of Lorraine and Bar in exchange for the Duchy of Tuscany and the hand of Maria Theresa with the title of emperor to come, after the death of Charles VI. Stanislas Lezczinsky, stepfather of Louis XV, would retain the title of King of Poland and become Duke of Lorraine and Bar. At his death, Lorraine and Bar were attached to France. François married Marie-Therese February 12, 1736. On 10 May 1736 he accepted the treaty that stripped Lorraine. On 13 September, he renounced his title of Duke of Bar and 24 December of the same year, by a secret act, renounced Lorraine. On 13 February 1737, the Treaty of Pressburg entérinait the withdrawal of François III.
