dbo:abstract
  • The Battle of Rocoux took place on 11 October 1746 during the War of the Austrian Succession, at Rocourt or Rocoux near Liège in modern Belgium. It featured a French army under Marshal Saxe and a combined British, Dutch, German and Austrian force led by Charles of Lorraine, John Ligonier and Prince Waldeck. The battle ended the 1746 campaign and the two armies went into winter quarters. Although it was a tactical success that confirmed French control of the Austrian Netherlands, Saxe failed to achieve the decisive victory needed to end the war. France in particular was struggling to finance it and opened bilateral peace negotiations with Britain at the Congress of Breda in August 1746. (en)
