Welcome back to the post-Nijmegen age of the early 1680s - you haven't been gone long! Herein we detail how Louis XIV planned to get what he wanted and turn the situation around in Europe. The war with the Dutch hadn't been universally satisfying, and to compensate, Louis sought to bring the peace to its logical conclusion. Before war would be arrived at, it remained to push the envelope as far as possible, and no better example of this exists than what Louis XIV did in Lorraine, a duchy on the eastern border of France which had more than its fair share of French schemes over the last few years. Louis was looking to take this to next level, and it is through the lens of what Louis tried to do in Lorraine that we explain what we trying to do on a wider scale with the so-called Reunions. Sound boring? IT'S NOT! Give it a listen, and make sure to let me know what you think!
