Although French exploration of the area began during the reign of Louis XIV, French Louisiana was not greatly developed, due to a lack of human and financial resources. As a result of its defeat in the Seven Years' War , France was forced to cede the eastern part of the territory in 1763 to the victorious British , and the western part to Spain as compensation for that country's loss of Florida .
