    Duchy of Lorraineball

    The Duchy of Lorraineball was a HRE-icon.png Holy Roman Imperial duchyball situated between West Francia-icon.png West Franciaball and Duchy of Swabia-icon.png Duchy of Swabiaball.


    Lorraine-icon.png Duchy of Lorraineball started when Lotharingia-icon.png Lotharingiaball died in 959, and its territory was divided between his sons, Austria-icon.png Lower Lorraineball and Upper Lorraineball. The Duchy of Lorraineball was coveted and was briefly occupied by File:Cross of Burgundyball-icon.png Duchy of Burgundyball and the Kingdom of France-icon.png Kingdom of Franceball. The Cross of Burgundy-icon.png Burgundian duke Charles the Bold campaigned for Lorraineball, but was defeated and killed at the 1477 Battle of Nancy.

    Due to the weakening of Imperial authority during the Thirty Years War, Kingdom of France-icon.png Franceball occupied the duchy in 1634 and kept it until 1661 when Charles IV of Lorraine was restored. In 1670, the French invaded again, forcing Charles into exile. His nephew and heir Charles V (1643–1690) spent his life in the service of the Austrian Empire-icon.png Imperial House of Habsburgball. France returned the Duchy in the 1697 Treaty of Ryswick ending the Nine Years' War and Charles V's son "Leopold the Good" became duke. Leopold revived the war-stricken duchy and began reconstruction.

    In the War of the Spanish Succession, parts of Lorraine, including the capital Nancyball, were again occupied by Kingdom of France-icon.png Franceball, but Leopold continued to reign at the Château de Lunéville.

    In 1737, after the War of the Polish Succession, an agreement between Kingdom of France-icon.png Franceball, the Austrian Empire-icon.png Habsburgs and the Lorraine House of Vaudémont assigned the Duchy to Stanisław Leszczyński, former Kingdom of Poland-icon.png king of Poland. The duke of Lorraine Francis Stephen was compensated with the Grand Duchy of Tuscany-icon.png Grand Duchy of Tuscanyball.
