LOUIS XIV: HARBOR FORTIFICATIONS
WARIN, Jean: France, n.d. (1667?), Bronze, 51 mm
In 1667 Louis invaded the Spanish Netherlands, precipitating the War of Devolution (1667-1668), which ended with France gaining Franche-Compte, Lorraine, and parts of Flanders. Perhaps this medal refers to this event.
