After the death of the Spanish Habsburg King Charles II on 1 November 1700, his last will designated Louis XIV's second grandson Philip Duc d'Anjou as his successor. In spite of the protests of other powers the transition seemed to go smoothly at first. In September 1701 the grand alliance of the Hague was formed between the United Provinces, England and Emperor Leopold I, who had declared war in spring and thus started the War of the Spanish Succession.
The war started with a surprising Austrian offensive by Prince Eugen in Italy in 1701 and an Anglo Dutch offensive on the lower Rhine and Meuse under Marlborough in 1702.
The northern campaign of 1702.
Hostilities in the north were opened when in the night of 19 March 1702 the Hannoverians invaded the territories of Louis' allies the dukes of Brunswick-Wolffenbuttel, disarmed their forces and occupied their territory. The younger duke of Brunswick was then forced out of the government, while the elder reconciled himself with the emperor and had his army incorporated in the Imperial forces.
The Dutch opened their campaign mid April by ordering Nassau Saarbrücken to start the siege of Kaiserswerth on the Rhine. The French then attacked Athlone who had to retreat to Nijmegen. Kaiserswerth capitulated 15 June. On 26 July the 50,000 Anglo-Dutch, now under Marlborough, marched south, this forced Boufflers to march south too and forced him to retreat to Brabant.
Though not victorious the maneuver gave the allies some territories and enabled them to lay siege to the Meuse fortresses north of Maastricht. Venlo capitulated 22 September, Stevenweert and Roermond soon followed, and the Meuse was free on 7 October. ¤
