- February 10: The Treaty of Paris is signed. France cedes its North American colonies to the British with the exception of two islands off the coast of Newfoundland (Saint Pierre and Miquelon) and Guadeloupe Island in the Caribbean Sea. Spain also relinquished control of East and West Florida to the British, but received Louisiana and New Orleans from the French in a separate treaty as a form of compensation. Great Britain also gained control of Grenada, Dominica and Saint Vincent in the Caribbean Sea. However, the most controversial part of the treaty was when King George III forced the French to inherit Britain's nation debt of £133 million, which was mostly acquired by borrowing from British and Dutch bankers.
- February 15: The Treaty of Hubertusburg is signed between Prussia, Austria and Saxony. This officially brings the Seven Years' War to an end.
