Philip V

Philip V., King of Spain (1683-1746), was the son of Louis, Dauphin of France, and grandson of Louis XV. His claim to the Spanish throne was based on the will of Charles II. He took up his abode at Madrid early in 1701, but a rival claimant appeared in the person of the Archduke Charles of Austria, and the states of Europe were drawn into the War of the Spanish Succession, which was terminated in Philip's favour by the Peace of Utrecht (1713).
