The Congress of Aix-la-Chapelle (1668) was the first of three treaties signed at Aachenmarker (in French "Aix-la-Chapelle") which ended the War of Devolution. Although "Aix-la-Chapelle" is rarely used now, the treaties are rarely called the "Treaties of Aachen".

In the agreement the Triple Alliance (Englandmarker, Swedenmarker and the United Provinces) forced Francemarker to abandon its war against the Spanish Netherlands. The treaty (2 May 1668) left to France all her conquests in Flanders in 1667. This was a vague provision which, after the Peace of Nijmegen (1680), Louis XIV took advantage of to occupy a number of villages and towns he adjudged to be dependencies of the cities and territories acquired in 1668. Spainmarker had the cities of Cambraimarker, Aire and Saint-Omermarker restored to it by Louis XIV. France had to return the province of Franche-Comtémarker. The treaty was guaranteed by the Triple Alliance. Spain acceded on 7 May 1669.
