This conflict became a general European war between Austria, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, and Great Britain (feared French expansion in Austrian Netherlands) vsPrussia, France, and Spain. In the end:Treaty of Aix-la-ChapelleAustrian throne was safe and reserved for the Hapsburgs.Diplomatic RevolutionMaria worked out an alliance with France (only if France got Austrian Netherlands). Despite their recent hostile relationship, France was increasingly wary of the growing of Prussian power. Sweden and Russia also joined this alliance.Great Britain had broken away from Austria and became allies with Prussia. Britain did not contribute to war as much but rather aided Prussia financially. Their main focus was winning the French and Indian War (French colonies inIndia and Canada were confiscated)The Diplomatic Revolution led to the Seven Years War, which started when Frederick attacked in order to put down his enemies quickly before they had a plan to defeat Prussia. This INITIALLY paid off (defeated French AND Austrian army) but it backfired when the Russian army arrived and took Berlin (RIP). PeterIII of Russia showed mercy and did not completely destroy Prussia. So Frederick was the winner of Europe, and Britain was the winner of the French and Indian War.RussiaIvan the TerribleoWhen he died Russia entered the “Time of Troubles”oLasted until a tsar from the Romanov family.
