The 1697 Peace of Rijswijk dashed Huguenot hopes of a return to their homeland. The refugees of the diaspora found permanent places of refuge in England, the Netherlands, and Hanover, becoming a Protestant International. In Hanover the elites military refugees exerted considerable influence over the Elector, Georg Ludwig (future King George I), and Huguenot religious and military personnel played a neglected part in the narrative of succession. Among the Huguenot names that dominate the narrative are those of Henri Massue de Ruvigny (better known as the Earl of Galway) and Jean de Robéthon; the first was a universally respected soldier, the latter a controversial diplomat and politician.
