Casualties and Losses



The War of the Sun King was a conflict between most of the major powers in Europe. The aim of this war was for the 'Grand Coalition' to try to halt French expansion, land-wise and power-wise. While France's main aim was to defend herself and her power while gaining more, and the English Royalists aim was to place a monarchy on the English throne. The Grand Coalition succeeded in its aim, and France had to return much of the land it had gained previously, and its North American colonies suffered greatly.


French Power had slowly been growing for years.
