The Peace of Basel of 1795 consists of three peace treaties of France (represented by François de Barthélemy). France made peace with Prussia on 5 April, with Spain (represented by Domingo d'Yriarte) on 22 July, and with Hessen-Kassel on 28 August, concluding the stage of the French Revolutionary Wars against the First Coalition. The effect was the re-emergence of revolutionary France as a major European power. Prussia yielded its possessions left of the Rhine to France, while France returned all of the lands east of the Rhine captured during the war. Spain ceded two thirds of the island of Hispaniola to France.
