This war is sometimes referred to as the 1st World War as over 1 million people perished and all the major powers of Europe were involved on the continent, with some hostilities/fighting in colonial regions including North America. One of consequences of this war led to revolution in what became the US, but for Europe it also threatened the Habsburg Empire which had been rationalised in the Pragmatic Sanction of 1713which allowed females to inherit.
