Title

Jean duc d'Estrées: Relation de ce qui s'est passé pendant la campagne des vaisseaux du Roy commandés par Monsieur..., 1698

Description

Official report of the experiences of the French naval squadron in Spain in 1698, during the leadup to the War of Spanish Succession, authored by Jean duc d'Estrées. The full title of the report is as follows: "Relation de ce qui s'est passé pendant la campagne des vaisseaux du Roy commandés par Monsieur le comte D'Estrées, en mil cens quatre vingt dix huit." Mentions the poor health of King Charles II of Spain, the state of the Spanish fleet, harassment by Algerian pirates, and the relationship between France and England. The Comte d'Estrées likely created this report and had it copied and disseminated to French officials. This copy comes from the papers of Michel Begon, a French civil servant.
