  • Les Chambres de réunion sont des commissions formées par Louis XIV en 1679 pour rechercher les anciennes dépendances des pays concédés à la France par les traités de Westphalie, d'Aix-la-Chapelle et de Nimègue, afin de prononcer la réunion de ces territoires à la couronne. Ces chambres mettaient en œuvre la politique des Réunions du roi.Louis XIV obtint ainsi la réunion du comté de Vaudémont, Sarrebourg, le comté de Sarrebruck, celui de Salm, une partie du Luxembourg, Hombourg, Deux-Ponts, le comté de Montbéliard, Wissembourg, Strasbourg, avec une partie de la Basse-Alsace.Le traité de Ryswick en 1697 annule toutes ces acquisitions, sauf l'Alsace.
  • The Chambers of Reunion (Chambres des Réunions) were French courts established by King Louis XIV in the early 1680s. The purpose of these courts was to increase French territory. Louis had been expanding the borders of France in a series of wars. Territory was gained in the Treaty of Nijmegen in 1679 and the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1668. The courts' job was to determine what dependencies, if any, had belonged to the areas incorporated into France by these treaties. In doing this, places such as Saarbrücken, Luxembourg, Zweibrücken and Strasbourg were annexed to France.Louis based his claims on ancient, often long-forgotten, rights to these dependent territories stemming from the Middle Ages. Louis thus took advantage of the formal content of his alliance treaties with the German princes by claiming their land. Although there was no legal claim to it at all, Louis took the city of Strasbourg, as well as the city of Casale. Louis also took most of what is now Luxembourg, then part of the Holy Roman Empire, which was distracted by an ongoing war with the Ottoman Empire.The conflicts caused by the Reunion policy ultimately led to the Truce of Ratisbon, in which Louis was allowed to keep most gains, partly due to the distraction of other countries, and a number of bribes, including payoffs to the German princes and Charles II of England.Louis's hostile policy antagonized much of the rest of Europe, resulting in the War of the League of Augsburg in 1688. The war ended in 1697 with the signing of the Treaty of Ryswick. In it Louis agreed to restore much of the territory that had been "reunited" with France as a result of the Chambers of Reunion.
