Charles then crossed the Düna and invaded his last remaining enemy, Poland-Lithuania. After defeating Augustus the Strong's and placing Stanisław Leszczyński on the throne, Sweden defeated a Saxon-Polish army and Augustus renounced his claims to the throne and made peace with Sweden. With his last enemy gone, the Great Northern War was over and Sweden established itself as the premier power in the Baltic.
Charles does not stop there, and continues his territorial ambitions, setting up colonies in the Americans and Africa, creating a large, more important Swedish Empire. The Swedes continue to shape European and global politics for the years to come.
