A successful invasion by Ferdinand of Aragon in 1504 brought the Kingdom of Naples in southern Italy under control of the Spanish crown for approximately the next two hundred years, despite competing hereditary claims by the French. Around 1701, the region became a battleground once more during the War of the Spanish Succession (1701 – 1714).

This map of the Kingdom of Naples and the island of Sardinia was engraved by Van Loon and published in Paris by Nicholas de Fer in 1704. Toponyms identify a variety of place names and locations of interest including cities, monasteries, castles, geographic features, and much more. Topography is depicted pictorially and two distance scales are provided.
