The Treaty of Toledo, signed in 1749, was one of the most important documents in early modern history, officially ending the state of war between members of the Grand Coalition, their allies, colonies, and territorial possessions, and the Empire of Hispania. The Treaty of Toledo ended the War of the Grand Coalition, which at the time had been one of the biggest conflicts the world had ever seen, involving contingents and belligerents from across almost all continents, for the first time on a major scale. The War of the Grand Coalition, and likewise the Treaty of Toledo, largely put an end to the Empire of Hispania, dividing up its territories among other nations of Europe and the globe. The treaty also established important concepts, such as the preservation of the balance of power in Europe, and the Leopoldine Doctrine, which sought to end European intervention in current and future independent Hesperian and Borealian states.
