The League of Augsburg, made up of England (HRE), Spain, Sweden, the Dutch Republic (center of commerce), the Austrian emperor, and various German princes, fought Louis XIV to a stalemate. England joins this league after the Glorious Revolution, when William of Orange begins his rule. This group of countries wanted to create a balance of power. Louis XIV wants to gain the trade control, power and spread Catholicism. It ended with Louis returning most of the land that he had conquered.
