The company was formed in 1723 by wealthy Flemish businessmen on the initiative of the Austrian Kaiser Karl VI, who wanted to establish an independent colonial policy.It was formed for 30 years, and was given the right to trade with the East and West Indies. The company's trading was extremely successful. However, its success was also its misfortune, since the great trading powers - England, Holland and France - felt their position to be menaced; they threatened war. Under the terms of the Treaty of Vienna, in 1731, the company was liquidated. This was part of the deal under which the three powers accepted that the Habsburg throne of Austria was available to Maria Theresa. The company had been sacrificed to the needs of politics.
