724. MAXIMILIAN to MARGARET OF SAVOY.
I have heard the charge you gave to Monsieur de Berttesi (fn. 3) and conversed with him touching my marrying again, if so inclined, which however you wished me to favour in such way as not to injure our common son the Archduke Charles (que toute foes vous me volisses favoryser pour ne faere point domage à nostre commun fylz, l'archiduc Charles). I answered him, and had other conversation, which he will relate, as follows:—1, Touching the realm of Naples; 2, how the King of Aragon wanted to chase the King of France and me out of Italy; 3, how the King of Aragon wishes to save the Venetians against the King of Hungary, fearing that if the latter gain Dalmatia he and I will be too near neighbours and may unite to chase the Bastard of Aragon out of Naples; 4, how the King of Aragon tried to thwart (? a mal adressé, consentu toutefoes) the two marriages between our children and the children sole heirs of the realms of Hungary, Bohemia, Moravia, Dalmatia, &c.; 5, how the marriage may be made between Renuera second daughter of the King of France and my son Charles; and, afterwards, of the sister, and second daughter, of the King of England with me, otherwise I will not marry at all either for money or beauty; 6, if peace may be made in Italy and Gueldres, how I desire to go this year with the army of the King of Aragon against the Moors or Saracens in Africa, according to that King's request to us and the King of France; 7, how the Turk-emperor wishes to be my great friend, and the losses of the Turks, or Makhométans against the King Soffy and at sea; and, on the other hand, how Peter de Novar and the Spaniards have lost in Africa, by their King's folly, 6,000 combatants, including a duke who was a young cousin of the King.
On all the above he desires her advice; and especially wishes her to obtain against the Bastard of Aragon an investiture of the realm of Naples for the Emperor's children and namely Charles, future King of Castile. 23 March.

725. [5740.] WARHAM to LORD DARCY.
Has sped the commissions which Darcy sent to be sealed. As to the deliverance of Elderkare and his sons from the Flete, as it is the King's pleasure, every reasonable man must be contented. Is sorry for Darcy's departure on such a distant and dangerous journey, but the more painful the more meritorious. How his friends and servants shall be treated in his absence it is hard to say, seeing they have not been well treated in his presence. Unless Darcy procure better and more substantial friends than him he writes of, to see to his affairs in his absence, he may be deceived. Wishes that he and his archers, when sent out of England, were to be with the Pope "to strength him against the enemies of the Church, which be little better than infidels." Doubtless he will take assurance for the payment of his, and his company's, wages. Hopes to speak with him in London at the beginning of next term. Canterbury, 25 March. Signed.

Instructions to Lord Darcy.
Is to be at Plymouth the day of his indentures, and, after taking musters, to go on board directly and wait for wind. To enter no haven, except in stress of weather, till they come to Ghades (Cadiz), where it is thought they shall find the King of Aragon. If he is not there, Darcy is to advise Ferdinand of his coming, and to tell him that he and his company have arrived to do him service at his pleasure, and request to know his wishes. Is to remain at Ghades, keeping his company all on board ship, till he receives an answer. On arriving in Ferdinand's presence he shall present the King's letters and say, "The King's Highness his good son, which as entirely loveth the said King of Aragon his good father as though he were his own natural son, and no less mindeth, pondereth and desireth the wealth, prosperity, surety and honor of his said good father and his prosperous successes in all his affairs, than he doth the wealth, prosperity, surety and honor of his own royal person, having knowledge, by his orator resident within his realm, that his said father, of his devout mind and catholic purpose, to his great laud and honor in this world and immortal reward in Heaven, now intendeth in his own person to make a noble voyage with a great army against the Moors and Infidels, enemies of Christ's faith; and being desired on his behalf by his said orator, hath sent him with his company and retinue to his Highness, and straitly commanded him to give his attendance upon him."
He shall then beg the King of Aragon to use him as his own subject, and shall state that as the manner of war and ordering of the same in England is not like that against the Moors, he begs the King of Aragon to appoint some expert man of war, by whom he may at all times be ordered.
Signed top and bottom by the King.
