The Battle of Blenheim, 13 August, 1704, was the most famous victory of John Churchill, 1st duke of Marlborough, and Eugene of Savoy in the War of the Spanish Succession. It was the first major defeat that the French army had suffered in over fifty years, and thus saved Vienna from a threatening Franco-Bavarian army, preserved the alliance of England, Austria, and the United Provinces against France, and knocked Bavaria out of the war.
