Treaty of Dresden

The Treaty of Dresden was signed on December 25, 1745 between Austria, Saxony and Prussia. Based on the terms of the agreement, Frederick II of Prussia acknowledged Francis I as Holy Roman Emperor. In return, Frederick II maintained control over Silesia, a territory taken from Austria after the Second Silesian War. Moreover, Saxony paid Prussia one million rix dollars (in reparations).
