and the French under the D. of Anjou:

the Emperour Charles, and the D of Anjou (King Philip) being both present.

Engraved by Isaac Basire for Paul Rapin de Thoyras.

An original large 18th century copper engraved antique map of the battle of Saragossa or Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain.

A numbered and lettered key displayed in decorative cartouche identifies the various battle positions.

Zaragoza is shown in bird's eye view with individual buildings, and the River Ebro and surrounding area is shown in detail extending to individual fields

The highly detailed plan depicts this battle during the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714)

in which Spanish and French forces united in a struggle to unite their two countries under one monarch.

This potentially massive combined power of Spain and France was opposed by several European forces

including Britain, the Dutch Republic, Portugal, the Duchy of Savoy and Spanish forces opposed to unification, usually refered to as "The Allies".
