A view of a battle in the Wars of the Spanish Succession, enclosed within an ornate rococco surround in which several figures are depicted. The Wars of the Spanish Succession lasted from 1701 until 1714 following the decision of the dying, childless Charles II, King of Spain to leave the entirety of the Spanish Hapsburg inheritence to the French Duke of Anjou, thus severly altering the balance of power in Europe.
