Beyond timeframe, only one other similarity is shared, and it is discussed at the conclusion of this paragraph. Although the two conflicts are depicted by some historians as, in fact, the same war, they are merely two wars with ties between them.
The basic premise of Queen Anne’s War was control of territory in the New World. Queen Anne’s War was one of four conflicts that comprised the French and Indian Wars. The War of Spanish Succession flared up after the death of King Charles II and was, as you may have guessed, a war to determine who would next lead the country. Upon his death, Charles II bequeathed his possessions and crown to Philip V. The legitimacy of the rule of Philip, a Frenchmen, was hotly contested. The war was key in Spain remaining independent of future influences from Rome and France.
One final similarity between QAW and WSS is that they were both ended in part by the Treaty of Utrecht. This treaty provided for specific territories to revert to English control and allowed King Philip to remain in control, but dictated that he could not influence further succession in Spain.
