The Battle of Dettingen was fought during the War of the Austrian Succession (1740–1748) in the area which is now southern Germany. When his retreat was cut off, George II (1683–1760) successfully led a multinational force of British, Hanoverians, Dutch and Austrians against the French under the Duc de Noailles, inflicting heavy losses. This was the last occasion when a reigning British monarch led his troops in person on the battlefield.
