The Hague Treaty (also known as the Hague Treaty or First Division Contract) was signed on 11 October 1698 between England and France. The agreement attempted to determine who would inherit the Spanish throne and proposed Joseph Ferdinand of Bavaria as heir. In addition, the agreement proposed that Louis, the Great Dolphin, Naples, Sicily, the final and the ports of Tuscany be received, while Archduke Charles, the youngest son of the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I, would receive the Spanish Netherlands. Leopold, Duke of Lorraine, would occupy Milan, which ceded Lorraine and the Bar to the Dauphin. The agreement was reached in the Dutch city of The Hague. Extensions are carried out centrally by the International Office. The applicant pays an annual fee and informs the International Bureau of the countries for which registration must be renewed. The original version of the agreement (the 1925 Version of The Hague) is no longer applied since all contracting states have signed subsequent acts. The London Act of 1934 was formally applied between a state in the London Act that did not sign the Hague Act and/or the Geneva Act with regard to the other states of the London Act until October 2016. However, as of January 1, 2010, the application of this law had already been frozen. The Brazilian delegation was led by Ruy Barbosa, whose contributions are now considered by some analysts to be essential to defending the principle of legal equality of nations.  The British delegation included Sir Edward Fry, Sir Ernest Satow, 11th Lord Reay (Donald James Mackay) and Sir Henry Howard as delegate and Eyre Crowe as technical delegate.  The Russian delegation was led by Friedrich Martens.
The Uruguayan delegation was led by José Batlle y Ordéez, a supporter of the idea of forced conciliation. [Citation required] Along with Louis Renault and Léon Bourgeois, Paul Henri d`Estournelles de Constant was a member of the French delegation for the 1899 and 1907 delegations. In 1909, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The U.S. ambassador was former president of the American Bar Association U.M Rose. The German expert on international law and New Democrat pacifist Walther Schocking called the 1918 assemblies an “international association of conferences in The Hague.” He saw the Hague conferences as a nucleus of a future international federation that would meet periodically to administer justice and develop international procedures for the peaceful settlement of disputes, saying that “the first and second conference create a clear political union of the world`s states.”  [Page required] The deposit tax consists of three types of taxes: a basic tax, a publication tax and a designation tax for each designated party. Many of the rules set out in the Hague Conventions were violated during the First World War. The German invasion of Belgium, for example, was a violation of the 1907 Convention (III), which stipulates that hostilities cannot begin without explicit warning.  During the war, toxic gases were imported and used by all the major belligerents, in violation of the Declaration (IV, 2) of 1899 and the Convention (IV) of 1907, which explicitly prohibited the use of “poison or poisonous weapons”.
