The war referred to in the title was the Northern War in which Sweden, under the young Charles XII was opposed by Russia, under Peter the Great, Poland and Saxony under Augustus II, and Denmark. The first ten years of the war, 1699-1709, went extremely well for Charles and Sweden, but from then to peace in 1721 quite badly: Charles was killed in the trenches in 1718, and Sweden was notably diminished in power, prestige and territory.
