2849. [5018.] MARGARET OF SAVOY to MAXIMILIAN.
Since she wrote of the dissatisfaction of the King of England and the answer he made to her communication to his ambassadors on the Emperor's behalf, they have delivered her the enclosed extract from their letters of what the King Catholic's ambassador has told the King of England and his Council, which, they say, has increased his suspicions and they pray her to declare the Emperor's intention. Made all possible excuses, and got her cousin Felix also to remonstrate, but they would admit no delay of the marriage of Madame Marie, and persisted that it must be at Calais; although, only after hearing Felix, they hope that their master may delay it till the end of May. Any further delay of the Emperor's resolution will make enemies of his friends, and she is already losing credit; also, if he confirms the truce, the frontiers must be kept, the garrison which the English have hitherto maintained expiring in a month. Has always told the ambassadors and written to their master, that the Emperor would not confirm peace or truce without the King's consent. For the affair of Gueldres and all these things, especially the subject of his message by Count Felix, his coming is necessary. Expected Felix would have some charge to go to England about the truce; and, finding it not so, she is the more perplexed as to how the Emperor can satisfy both sides, it being so important that the three remain united. Knows he cannot fulfil the King of England's desire without great assistance; but if his desire is to do so he should notify it and then he will see "à quoy il tiendra et dont la faulte procédera." Although the Emperor has written three or four letters she cannot learn his intention. The Pope practices to make his league with all Italy, the Swiss and the French, and include England. The Emperor knows at whose expense this will be (a la barbe de cuy cecy se feroit).
Spoke to the Treasurer about the 30,000 cr., and he and she have spoken of it to the Maître d'hotel Casius, who is to answer the Emperor therein. All is ready for the going of Madame Marie, who departs on 2 May, two days later than the Emperor commanded, and will go by Grave as he advised. Some say that when Monseigneur is married he will be out of tutelage; and, therefore, the Emperor should foresee that things do not turn out otherwise than he intends. Malines, 28 April 1514.

From Lorenzo Pasqualigo to his brothers, London, 29 April.—No more talk of the King's crossing to France, who is very indignant with his father-in-law for making truce without his knowledge and will. An agreement is being treated, and heralds passing, between England and France.
[Sanuto adds an extract from the letter, viz.:—]
Letters from Rome, of the 5th inst., call the rout of the Germans in Friuli a judgment upon their breach of the three months' truce which the Pope made. Everyone here was pleased; for the Germans have broken faith with this King also, by making the truce, in which Spain intervened, without his knowledge. If the Turks come the Spaniards will remove from before us and may it please God that Alviano have a greater victory and obtain amends for the damage suffered by our State. Here is talk of truce for one year, or peace. Within 15 or 20 days we shall see what happens. The King was on the point of crossing with such a power as would make him master of France. Suspects that it was on this account that the Emperor and Spain made truce and broke faith. The King has won great honour by doing more than was due and alone keeping faith. The Signory's letter to the King was good.

On the 28th April, at 3 p.m., received his letter dated London, the 24th, and sent the packet as directed, to the Lord Lieutenant of Tournay, Master Poynings, "evyn contenently," with all diligence to the post at Newport, where Hames says that posts are laid for the purpose. His son-in-law, Master Deputy, has written to the Council at Calais to send to Wolsey a French priest named Sir Peter, accused of treason, who refused to go in procession, as all other priests and clerks had done, for the winning of Terouenne and the field of Scots. "I cann nott blame hym; a ded lyck a trew Frencheman. We have noo nede inn thys towne at thys tyme, consedreng the warres with Fraunce, of anie Frenche prestes." The priest has a chantry at Calais founded by Richard II. Thinks it should be in the hands of an honest man. "And let the said Sir Peter go into France to his natural country, and be a bishop there, if he can." Calais, 30 April.
P.S. (fn. 7) —The Frenchmen "make many forwards and proffers, saying they will look upon us and at Guisnes both"; causing us to keep good watch and be ready. They assembled 800 horse and 5,000 foot. A letter has just been brought from the mayor and Council of Sent Homers by a pursuivant who left Dieppe on Tuesday, and says that Pré Jon (Prégent) is ready to leave Dieppe with nine galleys and eight more are at Honflett. They had left Dieppe on St. George's even but for the storm. "Pré Jone a sayd a wold com to Cales with hys gales, and bourne ouer shepps in the haven." For a surety, they have some enterprise in hand. It is said the French King will send 20,000 lanzknechts into Scotland.

Ib. 2859. FERDINAND KING OF ARAGON to LANUZA.
As he wrote on 9 March, the truce with France was taken by the Emperor's order, who undertook to persuade the King of England to ratify it. He is to tell Madame Margaret secretly that the chief reason was an Italian plot to oust the Emperor and Ferdinard from Italy; and get her to assist in persuading the King of England, for it is necessary for the Emperor, England and Ferdinand to remain united or France will break her engagements. Madame Margaret is the person upon whom peace and war most depends. The truce was concluded on 13 March for one year. Describes it. Quintana sent a ratified copy to the Emperor. Madame Margaret wishes to marry the King of France: but that King's reason for marrying is to have children and he does not believe that she would bear him children, Artieta and Lanuza's brother have arrived. Thanks Madame for the arrest of Juan Manuel. The Pope on 4 March gave his award between the Emperor and Venice. Gurk is a faithful servant whom he desires Madame Margaret to favour.

Sp. Transcr., I., 5, f. 313. R.O. 2860. FERDINAND KING OF ARAGON to VICH. (fn. 9)
The particular things of ours which you, Don Geronimo de Vich, our ambassador and councillor, shall procure from our Holy Father, besides those contained in our other instruction and letters which Antonio de Seron carries, are as follows:—
Desires confirmation by the Pope of the investiture of Naples and an amended bull for the excommunication of Navarre. ... (Here the transcript apparently omits part of the original ?) By virtue of the letter of credence herewith, he shall tell the Pope that Ferdinand has always desired the general peace; and much more since His Holiness' accession (which in the thing he most desired in the world) would he strive to make this pontificate a time of prosperity against the Infidels. To this end peace with France without letting the King of France into Italy was the true way to general peace: but, on the one side, the Venetians treated for his return thither and refused to make peace with the Emperor or to join the Pope, Emperor and Ferdinand for defence of Italy; and, on the other side, the King of England has made peace, or truce, with France without the Emperor and Ferdinand. France was therefore free, and already sending men to take the Duchy of Milan, where the people desire his return because they see their Duke unable to defend them. Seeing that all things thus combined to help the King of France and that the Italian potentates were unwilling to unite with the Pope, Emperor and Ferdinand for the defence of Italy, it appeared wisest not to oppose others but to make peace with France, binding him to make peace with all the others and immediately renounce Milan and Genoa in favour of his second daughter Renée's marriage to the Infant Don Fernando, Ferdinand's grandson, Milan to be governed by Ferdinand until the parties come of age to marry. Thus the Church and Italy will be secure from a return of the King of France. Italy will rejoice, because the Infant and Madame have no other estate, and Ferdinand, the Pope and the Emperor preserve their influence. The King of England, who has either made peace or truce or means to make it, will do so the better because, in the capitulation which the Emperor and Ferdinand have made, France agrees to satisfy the King of England, promising payment of his pension and aid that the government of Scotland may be settled as he wishes. Has agreed to sign a league, on the above lines, with the Pope, Emperor, France, England (if he will enter it), the Queen of Castile and the Prince, and sends copy herewith. It seemed best for the reputation of the Church not to wait for the Pope to send powers to France but for Ferdinand to sign on behalf of His Holiness, the Emperor and himself; and the Pope should immediately write to the King of France and Ferdinand that he is pleased with the peace and its terms.
Also he shall tell the Pope that a league of all who hold possessions in Italy, including the King of France for his portion, should immediately be formed for mutual defence.
