Coalitions in Europe between 1725 and 1730. Signatories of the Treaty of Vienna (April 30, 1725) in blue and signatories of the Treaty of Hanover (September 3, 1725) in red. Prussia, in brown, first joined the Hanoverian Alliance, but later changed sides after the Treaty of Berlin on December 23, 1728.[1]

The Treaty of Hanover was developed in response to the Treaty of Vienna (April 30, 1725) in which King Philip V of Spain allied himself with Habsburg Austria after his daughter's engagement to Louis XV of France was broken off. This accord was concluded by Great Britain, France and Prussia on September 3, 1725. George I, growing concerned about a potential conflict with Spain, signed the agreement linking France, Prussia, and the Netherlands (later acceded) together in opposition to Spain.[1][2]
