Noyelles during the Spanish Succession War

On 23 September a detachment under Noyelles was sent to close in on Stevensweert. Noyelle was to command the siege of Stevensweert. On 30 September the guns, which had arrived from Maastricht, opened fire. When he wanted to assault the town the enemy beat a parley in the evening of 1 October. This way Noyelles had quickly reduced a strategically important fortress.
