Treaty of Lunéville
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
The Treaty of Lunéville was signed on 9 February 1801 between the French Republic and the Holy Roman Emperor Francis II, negotiating both on behalf of his own domains and of the Holy Roman Empire. Joseph Bonaparte signed for France, and Count Ludwig von Cobenzl, the Austrian foreign minister, signed for the Emperor.
The Austrian army had been defeated by Napoleon at the Battle of Marengo on 14 June 1800 and then by Moreau at the Battle of Hohenlinden on 3 December. Forced to sue for peace, they signed another in a series of treaties. This treaty marked the end of the Second Coalition; after this treaty, Britain was the sole nation still at war with France.
