TREATY of Aix-la-Chapelle, 1748, referred to in Article

VII of the preceding Treaty.

(Extract.)

(Translation.) Definitive Treaty of Peace and Friendship, between His Britannic

Majesty, the Most Christian King, and the States General of the United Provinces ; concluded at Aix-la-Chapelle, the 18th day of October, N. S. 1748; to which the Empress Queen of Hungary, the Kings of Spain and Sardinia, the Duke of Modena, and the Republic of Genoa, have acceded.

ART. VII. In consideration of the Restitutions that His Most Chris. tian Majesty, and His Catholic Majesty make, by the present Treaty, either to Her Majesty the Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, or to His Majesty the King of Sardinia, the Dutchies of Parma, Placentia, and Guastalla shall, for the future, belong to the Most Serene Insant Don Philip, to be possessed by him and his Male Descendants, born in lawful Marriage, in the same manner, and in the same extent, as they have been, or ought to be, possessed by the present Possessors; and the said Most Serene Infant, or his Male Descendants, shall enjoy the said 3 Dutchies, conformably and under the Conditions, expressed in the Acts of Cession, of the Empress Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, and of the King of Sardinia.

These Acts of Cession of the Empress Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, and of the King of Sardinia, shall be delivered, together with their Ratifications of the present Treaty, to the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Catholic King, in like manner as the Ambassadors Extraordinary and Plenipotentiaries of the Most Christian King, and Catholic King, shall deliver, with the Ratifications of their Majesties, to the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the King of Sardinia, the Orders to the Generals of the French and Spanish Troops to restore Savoy and the County of Nice to the Persons appointed by that Prince to receive them; so that the Restitution of the said States, and the taking possession of the Dutchies of Parma, Placentia, and Guastalla, by or in the name of the Most Serene Infant Don Philip, may be effected within the same time, conformably to the Acts of Cession, the tenor whereof follows :

Act of Cession of the Empress Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, 1748.

We, Maria Theresa, &c. make known by these Presents :

Whereas, in order to put an end to the fatal War, certain Preliminary Articles were agreed upon, on the 30th of April of this year, between the Ministers Plenipotentiaries of the Most Serene and Most Potent Prince, George II, King of Great Britain, and the Most Serene and Most Potent Prince Lewis XV, the Most Christian King, and their High

Mightinesses the States General of the United Provinces, which have been since ratified by all the Powers concerned : the tenor of the IVth Article whereof is conceived in the following manner :

“IV. The Dutchies of Parma, Placentia, and Guastalla, shall be yielded to the Most Serene Infant Don Philip, to serve him as an Establishment, with the right of Reversion to the present Possessors, after that His Majesty the King of the 2 Sicilies shall have succeeded to the Crown of Spain ; as also in case the said Most Serene Infant Don Philip should happen to die without Children.”

And whereas, a Definitive Treaty of Peace having since been concluded, the several points relating to this affair have been, by virtue of the Articles thereof, explained by the common consent of the Parties concerned, in the following manner.

“In consideration of the Restitutions that His Most Christian Majesty and His Catholic Majesty make, by the present Treaty, either to Her Majesty the Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, or to His Majesty tbe King of Sardinia, the Dutchies of Parma, Placentia, and Guastalla shall, for the future, belong to the Most Serene lufant Don Philip, to be possessed by him, and bis Male Descendants born in lawful Marriage, in the same manner, and in the same extent, as they have been or ought to be possessed by the present Possessors; and the said Most Serene Infant, or his Male Descendants, shall enjoy the said 3 Dutchies conformably and under the conditions expressed in the Acts of Cession of the Empress Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, and of the King of Sardinia.

“ These Acts of Cession of the Empress Queen of Hungary and Bobemia, and of the King of Sardinia, shall be delivered, together with their Ratifications of the present Treaty, to the Ambassador Extraor. dinary and Plenipotentiary of the Catholic King, in like manner as the Ambassadors Extraordinary and Plenipotentiaries of the Most Christian King and Catholic King shall deliver, with the Ratifications of their Majesties, to the Ambassadors Extraordinary and Plenipotentiaries of the King of Sardinia, the Orders to the Generals of the French and Spanish Troops, to restore Savoy and the County of Nice to the Persons appointed by that Prince to receive them ; so that the Restitution of the said States, and the taking possession of the Dutchies of Parma, Placentia, and Guastalla, by or in the name of the Most Serene Infant Don Philip, may be effected in the same time, and conformably to the said Acts of Cession.”

Wherefore, in order to fulfil those things to which we have bound ourselves by the Articles before inserted, and in the firm hope that the Most Christian and Catholic Kings, and the future Possessor of the aforesaid 3 Dutcbies, and his Male Descendants, will, on their part, bona fide, and punctually, fulfil the tenor of the Articles above-men

tioned, and will likewise restore to us, within the same time, the States and Places which are to be restored to Us in consequence of the 1Ind and XVIIth Articles of the same Preliminaries ; We do yield and renounce, for us and our Successors, under the Conditions expressed in the above-mentioned Articles, all rights, claims, and pretensions to us under any Title or cause whatsoever belonging, upon the aforesaid 3 Dutchies of Parma, Placentia, and Guastalla, formerly possessed by Us; and transfer the same rights, claims and pretensions, in the best and most solemn manner possible, to the Most Serene Don Philip Infant of Spain, and his Male Descendants to be born in lawful Marriage, absolving all the Inhabitants of the said Dutchies from the allegiance and Oath which they have taken to Us, who shall be obliged for the future to pay the same allegiance to those to whom we have yielded our rights; all which, however, is to be understood only for that space of time that either the said Most Serene Infant Don Philip, or one of his Descendants, shall not have ascended either the Throne of the 2 Sicilies or of Spain ; for at that time, and in case the aforesaid Infant should die without Male Descendants, we expressly reserve to ourselves, our Heirs and Successors, all rights, claims, and pretensions, which have heretofore belonged to Us, and consequently the right of Reversion to the said Dutchies. In witness whereof, &c.
