The Peace of Hubertsburg (Hubertusburg) was a treaty which ended the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) between Prussia and Austria. In this war, which was a continuation of the War of Austrian Succession, France was allied with Austria, and Prussia with Great Britain. The goal of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria was to recover Silesia, which Prussia had captured from Austria during the war. However, the Peace of Hubertsburg allowed Prussia to retain Silesia, but in return it agreed to support the succession of Joseph II to the Imperial throne. The Peace of Hubertsburg, which was signed on the 15th of February 1763, as is indicated on this medal, left Germany divided between Austria and Prussia. The hostility between these two great German states powerfully influenced the whole future political development of Germany.
The French and Indian War was the North American phase of a world-wide nine years' war (The Great War for the Empire) waged between 1754 and 1763, approximately the same time as the Seven Years' War. However, this war is to be distinguished from the Seven Years' War which began in central Germany in 1756 and had different origins and results. The French and Indian War ended with the Peace of Paris, signed February 10, 1763, between France, Spain, Portugal and England. It decreed that France would cede Canada and all the other French possessions in America to the Mississippi River to England, and that Spain would cede Florida to England, resulting in England ruling all the Atlantic seaboard from Hudson Bay to the Keys of Florida.
