Treaty of Basel 1795

 


 

The Treaty of Basel, or Peace of Basel, also called First Treaty of Basel, was concluded on April 5, 1795, between the king of Prussia, Frederick William II, and France.

Prussia stuck to the agreement of the Treaty of Basel until 1806, when it joined the Fourth Coalition.

 

The Break-Up of the First Coalition

France took out the allies of the First Coalition one by one.

By means of this First Treaty of Basel, a defeated Prussia ended its engagement in the War of the First Coalition and ceded the territory left of the Rhine River to France.

A few months later, on July 22, 1795, the Second Treaty of Basel was signed by Spain and France.

Two years later, on October 17, 1797, another member of the First Coalition, Austria, caved in and signed the Treaty of Campo Formio with France. This marked the end of the War of the First Coalition. Napoleon won. The First Coalition lost.


The War of the First Coalition was a chapter in the
French Revolutionary Wars.

Here is more about the seven Coalitions against France.
