In 1830s lawless Mexico, there was the looting of a French pastry shop. A complaint was made to King Louis-Philippe, which, combined with grievances of a similar nature made by other French nationals, led to a demand by the French government for Mexico to pay 600,000 pesos in compensation. (For some perspective, the original pastry shop was valued at less than a thousand pesos.) When the Mexican president refused, it led to war. Santa Anna even came out of retirement to fight, and lost his leg in the Battle of Veracruz. In the end, a peace treaty was signed in which the Mexicans agreed to pay the 600,000 pesos. However, the payment was never made, and this was one of the reasons for war between the two countries a few decades later.
