A chronological list of the encampments and marches of the Allied army between 10 June 1702 and the signing of the Treaty of Baden on 7 September 1714. War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14).

The last entry, for 7 September 1714, in these tables states that the Peace was signed at ‘Rastadt’. In fact, the Treaty of Rastatt, between Louis XIV of France and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI, was signed on 7 March 1714. The effect of both treaties was to restore the right bank of the Rhine to the Holy Roman Empire, and to acknowledge Austria's possession of the formerly Spanish Netherlands as well as Naples and Milan. These treaties were the final settlements in the War of the Spanish Succession.

The coats of arms of Queen Anne (Great Britain) surmounted by the English crown, the Holy Roman Empire surmounted by the Austrian imperial crown, and the County of Holland, are inserted in the centre of the title.
