Triple Alliance of 1668

For other uses of this term, see Triple Alliance (disambiguation).

The Triple Alliance (1668) of England, Sweden, and the United Provinces was formed to halt the expansion of Louis XIV's France in the War of Devolution. The alliance never engaged in combat against France, but it was enough of a threat to force Louis to halt his offensive and sign the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle with Spain.
