The Eight Years' War was fought from 1714 until 1722 and involved Europe's great powers. Following the end of the War of the Spanish Succession, France and Spain had been united into the Union, which shifted the balance of power. Other European powers, angry over territorial losses and the Union's power, were known as the Grand Alliance. War broke between the Two Crowns, which consisted of the Union, Sweden, and Bavaria, and the Grand Alliance, which consisted of the United Kingdom, the Holy Roman Empire, the Dutch Republic, Portugal, Savoy, and Russia.
