François-Paul Baron Lisola (1613 – 1674) was a Viennese statesman, lawyer, and diplomat who served the Habsburgs. He was brutally scolded by the Holy Roman Empire and in England for many of his writings and essays, most notably because he publicly denounced Louis XIV in his work State Shield and Justice (Bouclier d’estat et de justice). These claims extended all across Europe.

This work is one of the publications of the time that tried to disprove the claims of France to Spanish properties (Brabant) through the rights of the French queen Marie-Thérèse. It was therefore strongly forbidden to bring it into France. F.P. Baron de Lisola (1612-1675) was a succesfull diplomate and publicist, praised by Pierre Bayle for his magnificent style. He was charged with important diplomatic missions, notably for the Emperor of Austria.

The War of Devolution (1667–68) saw Louis XIV’s French armies overrun the Habsburg-controlled Spanish Netherlands and the Franche-Comté, but forced to give most of it back by a Triple Alliance of England, Sweden, and the Dutch Republic in the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle.

Louis XIV (1638 – 1715), known as Louis the Great was a monarch of the House of Bourbon who ruled as King of France from 1643 until his death. His reign of 72 years and 110 days is the longest of any monarch of a major country in European history.
