The War of the Spanish Succession

Hello there, and thanks for reading!

I am creating a boardgame about the War of the Spanish Succession, but I have encountered some problems with finding out some of the information I need in relation to the names of the less famous commanders (i.e. not the likes of Marlborough, Prince Eugene of Savoy or Vendome). It would also help to know the approximate army sizes of beligerent armies (at the beginning of the war) - which I also need for game balance and historical accuracy.

There is an intimidating list of 11 areas I need looking at, which I will itemise now:

1) The names of 4 commaders who fought for Pro-Bourbon Spain.

2) The approximate size of the Spanish Army.

3) The names of 2 commanders who served with Prince Eugene of Savoy. I have found a Prince Vaudemont and Phillipp von Daun - but I'm not sure about them.

4) The approximate size of the Army of the Duchy of Savoy.

5) The names of 3 commanders who fought for the German States (i.e. The Imperial Army, Hanoverians, Prussians etc.) I have found Ludwig von Baden, George Louis of Hannover (later King George I) and Guido von Starhemburg. I would like them verified.

6) The size of the armies of these German States - which I have lumped together for


7) The names of 2 Commanders who fought for the Dutch Republic. I have Jacob Wassenaer and Henry of Nassau - I would love to have them verified.

8) My research suggests the Dutch fielded a figure of between 50,000 and 80,000 - again verification would be appreciated.

9) For England I need to check on one commander who served alongside the Duke of Marlborough in France and I would appreciate a fact check on the Earl of Cadogan.

10) England fought on two fronts so I need the size of her army in Spain, and that in France.

11) I have no issues with any of the French Commanders. My research suggests that France fielded about 343,000 and that that figure almost equalled the size of the opposing coalition.

Many thanks for taking the time to read about project. I'm happy to clarify any queries you may have.
