The Siege of Bonn took place from November 3–12, 1673, in Bonn, Germany, during the Franco-Dutch War. Having forced the armies of Louis XIV to retreat, the Dutch in 1673 went on the offensive. At Bonn, a garrison consisting of troops from France and the Electorate of Cologne was besieged by a force from the Dutch Republic (commanded by stadtholder William III), Spain, and the Holy Roman Empire (commanded by Raimondo Montecuccoli). The allied forces captured the garrison following a nine-day siege.
