The estates of Flanders manning the barricades for territorial integrity: the protest against the barrier treaty of 1715

Klaas Van Gelder UGent (2012) Intermediate institutions in the county of Flanders in the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern Era. In Archives générales du royaume et archives de l'Etat dans les provinces : Studia = Algemeen Rijksarchief en Rijksarchief in de Provinciën : Studia 135. p.115-137
abstract
This paper focuses on the opposition of the Estates of Flanders to the Barrier Treaty of 1715, and in particular their displeasure with the land cession to the Republic stipulated among its provisions. This episode illustrates how the eighteenth century Estates had an entire range of methods at their disposal by which to pressure the supposedly absolute monarch, to fight any alleged violation of their privileges. Before sending a delegation to Vienna, they threatened, among other things, to cut off funds to the Emperor. In 1718, the Estates partly succeeded in achieving their ambitions. This indicates that as an effective, intermediate administrative body in the Southern Netherlands, they were indispensable governing partners that the new Austrian regime simply could not afford to ignore.
