The first League of Armed Neutrality was an alliance of European naval powers between 1780 and 1783 which was intended to protect neutral shipping against the Royal Navy's wartime policy of unlimited search of neutral shipping for French contraband. British naval commanders followed their instructions with care, ordered away boarding parties and made seizures with impunity. Four fifths of ships sailing, according to one estimate, made port in safety, but it was the loss of the other fifth that rankled. By September 1778, at least 59 ships were taken prize-8 Danish (and Norwegian), 16 Swedish and 35 Dutch, not mentioning others from Prussia. Protests were enormous by every side involved.

  • A Liga da Neutralidade Armada (1780-1783), mais conhecida na literatura lusófona por Liga dos Neutros, foi uma coligação de Estados europeus, liderados pela Rússia, formada durante a Guerra da Independência Americana com o objectivo de proteger a liberdade do comércio marítimo face às buscas e apreensões abusivas que eram conduzidas em alto-mar pela Marinha Real Britânica que seguia uma política de buscas ilimitadas alegadamente para suprimir o contrabando francês.
  • La Lega dei neutri, sorta nel 1781 su iniziativa di Caterina II di Russia, era intesa per mantenere il principio della libera navigazione dei mari, per navi battenti bandiera di stati neutrali, nel contesto della guerra d'indipendenza americana.
