The weakness displayed by the empire and the increasing disunion
between Austria and Prussia encouraged the French to further
insolence. Not satisfied with garrisoning every fortification on
the left bank of the Rhine, they boldly attacked, starved to
submission, and razed to the ground, during peace time, the once
impregnable fortress of Ehrenbreitstein, on the right bank of the
Rhine, opposite Coblentz. 11] Not content with laying the
Netherlands and Holland completely waste, they compelled the Hanse
towns to grant them a loan of eighteen million livres.
