Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, 2 May 1668
Treaty that ended the War of Devolution between France and Spain over control of the Spanish Netherlands. Under pressure from the Triple Alliance (England, Sweden and the United Provinces (Holland)), the French agreed to return Franche-Comte to the Spanish, along with most of Flanders and Hainault, although they gained a series of fortified towns on the borders of the Spanish Netherlands, along with some strongholds within Flanders itself.
