Here is a link to a website that offers documents, commentary, a timeline, biographies and images about the end of the War of the Fifth Coalition. http://www.napoleon.org/en/History/mini ... 475199.asp

According to La Fondation Napoleon: Following the armistice declared at Znaïm in July, 1809, the Treaty of Vienna (also known as the Treaty of Schönbrunn) formally brought to a close the Franco-Austrian war of 1809, and with it the War of the Fifth Coalition. Signed on 14 October, 1809, and ratified by Napoleon the following day, the treaty finally saw an end to months of discussions and Austrian feet-dragging. Austria formally ceded huge swathes of territory, including Salzburg, the upper valley of the Inn, Trieste, Carniola and Croatia. Included in the secret articles of the treaty was the provision that the Austrian army could not exceed 50,000 men until peace with Britain had been signed, whilst Vienna's fortifications were also to be destroyed. The treaty saw Russia, the Kingdom of Bavaria and the Duchy of Warsaw all benefit, and resulted in the creation of the Illyrian Provinces, the short-lived autonomous province on the Adriatic coast which was governed as part of the French Empire.
