Royal Proclamation of 1763

On the heels of the Treaty of Paris which ended the Seven Years' War and the French and Indian War in North America, the Royal Proclamation of 1763, was issued by George the Third, by the Grace of God, King of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, and so forth. The Proclamation laid out the plan for managing the newly acquired French territories in North America and created a reserve area for Indian allies under the protection of the British Empire. The Proclamation Line was set along the crest of the Alleghany Mountain range and European settlement beyond the line was prohibited. In addition, the Proclamation promised Indians in the British Indian territories protections from exploitation.
