Under the reign of Queen Anne, England went to war to wrest the Spanish dominions from Philip of Spain and give them to Austrain Archduke Charles. This caused a split between the British Whigs who supported the war and the Torries who were less interested. Eventually, the Peace of Utrecht was signed in 1713 stipulating for the permanent separation of the Crowns of France and Spain.
