In the 1059 treaty, King Baldwin, in exchange for giving up the march of Valenciennes which he had confiscated in 1045, received the march of Ename in Brabant.

In the Treaty made at Andernach on 27 April 1292, Adolf of Nassau agreed to the demands of Siegfried II of Westerburg. This included the transfer to the Archbishopric of imperial cities like Dortmund and Duisburg, imperial castles and estates, and Essen.[1][2]

In the 15th century, the Treaty of Andernach was made between the Holy Roman Empire, German powers and France at the German town, in the year 1474. The treaty was signed by the Emperor Frederick the four electors of the Rhine and Louis XI, the King of France.[3] The treaty was later extended by Frederick and Louis, as they enticed Rene, the Duke of Lorraine to join them and declare War on the Duchy of Burgundy.[4][5]
