  • The Battle of Seneffe was fought on 11 August 1674 between a French army under the command of Louis II de Bourbon, Prince de Condé and the Dutch-German-Spanish army under the Dutch Stadtholder William III of Orange (later King William III of England).During the Franco-Dutch War, William commanded a Dutch-German-Spanish army through the southern Netherlands into the territory of Northern France. France defended this area with an army under "le Grand Condé". For five weeks the two armies manoeuvred without getting into combat with each other. On the 10th of August, William III decided to head towards Paris in order to force the enemy into fighting.Condé sent a detachment of about 500 horsemen to keep the Dutch vanguard busy near the village of Seneffe, blocking the advance of William. In the meantime, Condé tried to surround the 62,000 allied troops with the 44,000 men at his disposal.The horsemen managed to keep the Dutch vanguard busy, but the envelopment of the main allied force failed. After ten hours Condé had suffered 10,000 casualties and William - 14,000, with the allied troops retreating from the battlefield. (en)
