[Note of letters received 25 May 1510.]
From Andrea Badoer, London, 30 April to 1 May.—The King of Hungary. Dissuaded the King from sending a doctor to the Pope, as the bp. of York was doing well; and advised his sending to the Emperor. The King acquiesced, but would send a knight (fn. 1), not a doctor. An ambassador of Portugal has arrived. No news of French armata. The King of Scotland's wish to be the Signory's captain general. Has arranged a secret conference on the Borders. Cannot get the treaty, but sends copy of the article touching the galleys (recited as in Rymer XIII. 270).

From Andrea Badoer, London, 11 May.—Return of the herald from the Emperor, who insists on recovering his towns. The King displeased, and sending the said (fn. 2) knight, who is a worthy man and italianado, with whom any Venetian agent who might be with the King of the Romans incognito might confer. Madame Margaret trying to raise money for her father. In England the treaty with France is held invalid because the King is under 21, and needs ratification; and Monsem Joam (sic) was to go to France to ratify it (fn. 3), but there is no talk of this. It is even said that the King of France has been duped. The King of Scots for the captainship. Giustinian, Molin and Da Ponte going through France. The King says the Signory should remember Vicenza. Winchester a good friend.

[Note of letters received 4 June 1510.]
From S. Piero Pasqualigo, ambassador and Vincenzo Guidoto, secretary, dated Strigonia, 18 May.—The Cardinal of Strigonia has shown him letters which the King of the Romans writes to the King of Hungary and a letter written by the King of Spain to the King of the Romans. The Cardinal said he was in great straits, and afterwards spoke of the King of France having written and sent an ambassador, Ludovico Eliano, who had been there before, announcing peace made with England and the secret league of the Pope, Emperor, Spain and France to ruin the Venetians and reinstate the Emperor; and advising the King of Hungary to recover Dalmatia.
Ib., 542. ii. [Note of letters received 9 June 1510.]
From Andrea Badoer, London, 18 May.—In writing to the Emperor, the King followed Bodoer's advice so much that Winchester and Durham were quite jealous, so he appeased them. The King thinks himself duped by France in the treaty, the article touching the galleys not being what he wished, and another article, binding France to do no more against Venice than give the Emperor the men stipulated by the League of Cambray, being left out. Hears by way of Flanders that France is sending two solemn ambassadors, Mons. di Ravasten, who was captain of the French fleet (armata) at Metelim, and Mons. di Pim, who was ambassador there before. Names Carmeliano, secretary of the King, who will do all for the Signory.

467. FOR FEATS OF ARMS AT GREENWICH.
Whereas it has ever been the custom in this realm for gentlemen to pass the summer season in "disportes," as in hunting and hawking and other pastimes; and because all such sports be not ready in May and June, to eschew idleness, the ground of all vice, and give honorable and healthy exercise, "two gentlemen, associating to them two other gentlemen to be their aids" beseech the King's licence to furnish certain feats of arms, as follows:—
A green tree shall be set up in the "lawnd" of Greenwich park on 22 May, bearing a white shield on which those who accept this challenge may subscribe their names. On Thursday, the 23 May, and every Thursday and Monday until 20 June, the said two gentlemen and their aids will on foot meet all comers "at the feat called the barriers" with casting spear (headed with "the morne") and target and with bastard sword (point and edge rebated) from 6 a.m. till 6 p.m.

All this time he has not dared to write of the Queen's condition. Describes her miscarriage on 31 Jan. last and subsequent pregnancy, as learnt from the King himself and the doctors.

Has received his letters and those of the general of Normandy, and thanks him for his diligence. Approves his decision to take the way of Vicenza. As for la voye de fait which has been made by certain Gascons, they are to be rigorously punished, even if they are the captains. Mollart, Maugiron or the Capdet de Bon Repos are not to be spared if guilty, and indeed the said Capdet is said to have been five or six times condemned by the Parliament of Toulouse to be hanged. As for the money for which the Emperor asks, the instructions are to be observed. Has come into Dauphiné, stag-hunting; so as to be ready to provide as affairs require. Coulombiers, 25 May. Signed.

Has not written lately, having no news; but takes this occasion, as the Spanish ambassador is returning to Spain, to write that he and his Queen are happy and his kingdom tranquil. Heard with pleasure what the newly appointed Spanish ambassador communicated, and commissioned some of his chief Councillors to negociate; which has already led to a satisfactory result.

473. QUEEN KATHARINE to FERDINAND, KING OF ARAGON.
Was delivered of a daughter, still-born, an event which in England is considered unlucky, and therefore she has not written sooner. She and her husband cheerful. Thanks God for such a husband. When in labour vowed a rich head-dress to St. Peter the Martyr, of the Franciscan Order; and sent it by a niece of the Treasurer Morales who wishes to become a nun of that Order. The girl's father has detained both Katharine's letter to the Prioress and the head-dress, as his daughter's property. Begs Ferdinand to reprimand the father. Considers favours done to her confessor as done to herself. Greenwich, 27 May.

474. LUIZ CAROZ to ALMAZAN.
Describes how he is hampered by the Friar (fn. 4) in his dealings with the Queen. The man's mind is certainly deranged. Here is a servant of the Queen, named Francisca de Caceres, married to Francisco Grimaldo, but by the Friar forbidden to enter the Palace. Suggests that King Ferdinand should send him two letters of recommendation, to the King and Queen, with which he might either persuade the Queen to take her back or get the King to take her for Madame Mary; and once in the Palace she would be of great service in obtaining information. Lately there lived in the Palace two sisters of the Duke of Buckingham, both married (fn. 5), one a favourite of the Queen and the other said to be sought after by the King. One Conton, who had been the late King's butler, carried on the intrigue. The Queen's favourite having apprised the Duke and the two husbands of this matter, the Duke met Conton in his sister's chamber and quarrelled with him. For this the King spoke angrily to the Duke, who left the Palace that night and did not return for some days. The lady's husband, too, carried her off to a convent 60 miles hence, and then the Queen's favourite and her husband, as having caused all this, were turned out of the Palace by the King, who would have turned off some other women, also suspected of tale-bearing, but that he thought the scandal too great. All the Court knew that the Queen was vexed with the King, and he with her; but the Friar denied the whole matter. Fears that as he is thus prevented by the Friar from advising the Queen she may act unwisely, as she has done already by showing ill-will to Conton. For this the King is annoyed with her, and perhaps with the Friar too. Asks whether to write about such matters. The Lord Chamberlain has told him to write of all that happens.

476. LUIS CAROZ to FERDINAND, KING OF ARAGON.
This courier arrived on 5 May, but, as the Council remained in London until the 7th, the writer deferred going to the King. The King's desire to have the treaty of stricter alliance passed immediately; and appointment of his secretary, the bp. of Durham, to négociate. Neither the bp. of Winchester, who is Privy Seal, nor the Treasurer being in Court, the King sent other Councillors to assist; from whom he learnt that the matter had been already discussed and agreed in Council. Next Saturday, Winchester and Durham brought a draft of the treaty, which has now been passed. The King is most frank, but the Councillors by their slowness made him suspicious. Describes how he gained the assistance of Durham and Winchester by persuading them that Ferdinand would get them made cardinals, as well as the English ambassador at Rome, whom the Pope intends to create cardinal. The King also took up a suggestion to negociate with the Pope for English cardinals to counteract the French. The King, who thinks the Emperor dissuaded from peace with the Venetians by Councillors of the French faction, has sent a gentleman (fn. 6) to negociate with the Emperor upon this and the alliance with Prince Charles, Spain and England. The English wish that alliance kept separate from this alliance with Spain. The King's warning that only Winchester could be trusted with French affairs. Many other Councillors are Frenchmen at heart. Their excuse for concluding the treaty of peace with France in the way they did,—which Madame Margaret knew. On speaking for the first time with the King about France and the Venetians, was referred to Winchester; who, on his part, said he would answer after Easter. But Easter has passed without mention of it, and now the writer is ordered not to broach the subject. The treaty with France was concluded, say the Councillors, on 23 March; not on 14 March, as Ferdinand has been informed from France. The King of England did not wish it, but some of his most intimate Councillors insisted so much upon it that he gave way. The Duke of Buckingham and many others hate the French. Not John Stile, but a person sent expressly, shall witness Ferdinand's oath to the treaty; and the English wish it kept secret until that with the Emperor is made. London, 29 May 1510.

Two letters, viz.:—25 May—Remind him to keep favourable the Cardinals of Naples, St. George and Regino and the English ambassador. 29 May—If the King of France shall condescend to promise what the Pope has asked, it is only because of his danger. That ceased, he knows there is nothing to prevent his deceiving the Pope and carrying out his evil designs. In witness of this we have Nicolo da Ponte, who has come from England through France.

481. FERDINAND, KING OF ARAGON, to his VICE-BOY of NAPLES.
Learns from Rome by letters of the 6th, and from France of the 9th May inst., that the King of France is marching to Italy with such an army that, doubtless, he intends to conquer Venice and Siena and make a new Pope. Wishes peace with France, but if the Pope is oppressed or his own dominions attacked, he and his son the King of England are determined to declare war on France; and upon pretext of war with the Moors he has things prepared and Count Pedro Navaro at the head of 8,000 men. The Vice-roy must pretend the greatest friendship for France, but, on pretext of searching for prohibited merchandise, intercept all ciphered letters.

483. THE SAME to THE SAME.
Answered all his letters by despatch from Zaragoza, 22 April, ordering him to conclude the alliance without delay. Its conclusion is most important, as the chief remedy if France should really attempt anything against Spain, but he must be careful not to let the English suspect any fear of war or they will make difficulties. Gives a forecast of the French projects in Italy, for which their army is now preparing, viz. to subjugate Venice and Siena and, indirectly, get possession of Ferrara and Mantua; then march to Rome, dethrone the Pope and elect another (process described). The ruling men in France expect their King thus to become monarch of Christendom. French intrigues in Italy, the main object being to get the Emperor to assist the King of France, in the hope of recovering the Imperial cities from the Venetians and being crowned at Rome. As the French are always quick in execution of their undertakings, resistance must be speedily organised. Not until the treaty of alliance is concluded are these French designs to be communicated to the King. Gives directions for persuading the King of the necessity of gaining the Emperor and getting the Pope to reconcile himself with the Emperor, and the latter with the Venetians. The French may not attack either Spain or England at present, but they only delay hostilities until they may finish their other enterprises. The deposition of the Pope by France would be a greater offence to all Christian princes than an attack on themselves; but if a General Council, duly convoked, undertook to reform the Papal Court and the Church, the duty of Spain and England would be to see its measures enforced.
Caroz must be careful that the French know nothing of this matter. If the King is disinclined to undertake anything against France, the Queen must be asked to persuade him; and if she refuses, the Friar, her confessor, is to be used to persuade her.

Footnotes

  • 1. Sir Robert Wingfield.
  • 2. See No. 450, which this entry immediately follows in Sanuto.
  • 3. The printed edition of Sanuto's Diaries runs "perchè questo re à anni 21 e bisogna la retification et si doveva mandar in Franza," etc., but a selection of extracts in R.O. (Venetian Transcr., 126) reads the passage "perche questo Re [non ?] a anni 21 et bisogna la ratification et Monsem Joam (sic) doveva andar in Franza," etc., which, in view of Badoer's subsequent letter of 8 June (q.v.), seems more likely to be correct.
  • 4. Diego Fernandez.
  • 5. The Duke's sisters were Elizabeth, wife of Robert Ratcliffe, afterwards Lord Fitzwalter, and Anne, wife of George Hastings, afterwards Earl of Huntingdon.
  • 6. Sir Robert Wingfield.
