Q. The “Treaty of Ryswick” was concluded between which of the following?
Explanation: The French position in India was badly affected with the outbreak of war between the Dutch and the French.
- Bolstered by their alliance with the English since the Revolution of 1688, the Dutch captured Pondicherry in 1693.
- Although the Treaty of Ryswick concluded in September 1697 restored Pondicherry to the French, the Dutch garrison held on to it for two more years.
- Once again, under Francois Martin’s able guidance Pondicherry flourished and turned out to be the most important settlement of the French in India.
