SE concluded our Third Affairs of Spain,

France, England, notice of a Conspiracy W

1526. against his Imperial Majesty and the Spanish Forces at Milan. The Beginning of the Year, 1526,

the Commendary Herara returned from Rome to Madrid, and brought Letters from Pope Clement the VIIth, written with hisown Hand, to the Emperor, in which he laboured to clear himself of the Imputation of having any Hand in the Conspiracy, by laying the Fault on the Marquis of Pescara, and Jerome Moreton; and entreated the Emperor to pardon Sforza, and restore him to his Dominions of Milan : But, says the Spanish Writers, “ the Emperor, knowing that the Duke would VOL. IV.



" ascribe the Benefit of his Liberty to the Intercession “ of the Pope and the Venetians, and not to his Mercy

only, made little Account of their fair Words."

Allo about this Time the captive King of France was brought to consent to the Restitution of Burgundy for the Sake of his Liberty, only insisting, that it could not be performed till fome Time after he was free, because the People would never deliver it whilft he was a Prisoner; but, for Security of the Performance, he agreed to deliver his two eldest Sons as Hostages. Though the Emperor thought good to take the Advice of his Council upon so important an Affair, yet, finding their Opinions so very different one from the other, as not to be reconciled, he resolved to release the King upon such Terms as could be had. . Accordingly the Treaty was concluded and signed, on the 14th of January at Madrid, by which Peace and Amity seemingly was established between Charles the Vth and Francis the Ift. The chief Articles of which were,

" That the King of France should marry Queen Eleanora, the Emperor's Sister, and have with her

200,000 Crowns in Gold. That he should be set

at Liberty on the roth of March, and then deliver “ his two Sons as Hostages. That he should “ resign to the Emperor the Dutchy of Burgundy in “ full Sovereignty That he should give up

the Homage the Emperor owed for Flanders and Ars tois.---That he should renounce all Claim to Naples, Milan, Asti, Tournay, Life, Hesdin, &c. --That he “ should endeavour to persuade Henry d'Albert to re

sign the Kingdom of Navarre to the Emperor, or at “ least should give him no Assistance.----That within

40 Days he should restore the Duke of Bourbon, “ and all his Party to their Estates.-That he should “ restore Philbert de Chalons, Prince of Orange, and “ Michael Antonio de Saluzzo to their Principality." That he should give no sort of Aslistance to the “ Duke of Guelders, and, after that Prince's Death,

« use his best Endeavours to cause his Towns to fall “ into the Emperor's Hands. That he should pay the “ King of England 500,000 Crowns which the Em“ peror owed him.—That, when the Emperor should

go to Italy, to receive the Imperial Crown, he “ Thould send him 12 Gallies, four large Ships, and

a Land Army, or 200,000 Crowns instead of the “ Army. Lastly, he promised, upon the Word and “ Honour of a Prince, to execute all these Articles, or to return Prisoner into Spain within six Months.”

To confirm this Treaty, Francis and his Ambassadors swore, by the Sacraments and the Holy Evangelists, to keep it all Days of his Life, and not to give Counsel to, or favour any one that should break it.

At this Time Charles was under great Perplexities, besides those already mentioned : He knew, that the Princes and Hans Towns of Germany, that had embraced Luther's Doctrine, began to take Measures to secure themselves from the Calamities they were daily threatened with.
