Lunéville, Treaty of (1801)


a peace treaty concluded on February 9 in the city of Luneville, France, between France and Austria after the defeat of the Austrian troops by Napoleon’s army at Marengo (June 14, 1800) and at Hohenlinden (Dec. 3, 1800).

The Treaty of Lunéville confirmed the Campo Formio Treaty of 1797, but with modifications unfavorable to Austria. The additional clauses of the Treaty of Lunéville included Austria’s recognition of the Batavian Republic, the Helvetian Republic, the Ligurian Republic, and the Cisalpine Republic, which were all dependent on France. The conclusion of the Treaty of Lunéville marked the end of the second anti-French coalition.
