In 1677, the armies of Louis XIV of France (this time led by Vauban[) captured the city and in 1678 the Treaties of Nijmegen gave the French control of Valenciennes (1678) and the surrounding southern part of Hainault, roughly cutting the former County in half. Since then it has been part of France.
