TREATY OF CAMPO FORMIO
DUVIVIER, Benjamin: France, 1797, Bronze, 56 mm
As a result of Napoleon's masterly campaign in Italy, Austria was compelled to conclude the peace of Campo Formio, which took place in 1797. Under this treaty the Austrian emperor was forced to surrender Lombardy and Belgium to France and receive in return Venetia, Istria and Dalmatia. He was also forced to agree to the cession of the left bank of the Rhine to France. The German princes, who suffered a loss of territory in consequence of the cession, were to be compensated by obtaining territories on the German right bank of the Rhine. Their claims were to be dealt with by a congress which was to meet at Rastatt.
