599. Maltravers to Henry VIII.
Heard for truth this morning that the French King prepares to
march in person with a great army about 11 June, "and hath sworn an
unadvised oath saying that he will have all Artoysse or else it shall cost
him his life." 15,000 Swysses are come to serve him. They bruit at
Arde that the French king has written to their lieutenant to make much
of the Englishmen. The Constable of France rises again in favour. On
Thursday the Burgundians and certain horsemen of Turwan met. The
French took one Burgundian horseman, and the Burgundians took 22
Frenchmen and slew 4 or 5 of their horsemen. Calais, 26 May. Signed.

600. Wallop to the Council.
Wrote on the 24th of receipt of a letter from the Great Master, in
answer to his, intimating the King's pleasure as contained in theirs of the
21st. Accordingly, met the Great Master yesterday at St. Mary Kerque
adjoining Bredenarde, where 2,000 Almains lie and a reinforcement of
Burgundian footmen and 200 horsemen is appointed, to guard that way to
Flanders. The Great Master rejoiced at Wallop's commission and
thanked the King for his gentle offer to assist the Emperor, saying that if
the Frenchmen should enter upon those parts he would be glad to have
the number now granted sent to where the Almains are, not requiring
assistance except from the English pale to St. Omer's. He was advertised
of the "conformation" of the treaty, before Wallop's coming, both by the
Regent and Mons. de Chapuys, the ambassador. Wallop said he should
have as many men as might safely be spared from the King's fortresses,
viz. 2,000 footmen and 200 horsemen. He liked that well, and began to
devise about some notable exploit, saying that if he had 3,000 foot and
600 horse, Englishmen, with two double cannons, 2 demicannons and
2 fawcons, he could burn the rest of Bullonoyes, towns, village, peels and
strong churches, unto the sea side, and, if the time were well chosen,
might peradventure take Mounstrell, whence at his last course most of
the inhabitants fled away. But that enterprise must be shortly, for
whenever war shall be published the French will lie there with their
whole power. Has written before how commodious that town should be
both for the King and the Emperor. For secrecy, the Great Master
thinks that horses for drawing the ordnance might be sent over to serve
in the mean time in the works here.
"The said Great Master goeth this (sic) towards Hennoway, being sent
for by the duke of Arsekott, intending upon that border to make a course
if the Frenchmen do not empeach them in these parties : and doubting the
same the said Allemaignez shall remain where they are; which Frenchmen
the Great Master is advertised they be encamped besides Mounstrell, who
reckoneth they will not stir much abroad before Midsummer." He
thinks the Emperor now in Italy, but his letters from the Regent that day
did not mention it. The duke of Clevez army lies still before Hensbroughe
and has lost two great pieces of ordnance. The Prince of Orange is
encamped within a league or two of them. Callaiz, 26 May, at night.
P.S.—Trusts they received his letters of the 24th, enclosing letters of
the Great Master to himself and to the ambassador there.

Wrote on the 20th of the Turk's departure from Andrinopoli, 23
April, with a puissant host against Ferdinando; and the issuing from
Constantinople of 120 galleys and 40 or 50 fustes. To-day, letters from
Geane, of the 23rd, report the Emperor's arrival at Le Spongie in
Provence, 150 miles from Geane. Guasto and his wife and the principal
nobility of Milan are gone to Geane to honour the Emperor and his
daughter, "who by the vulgar bruit is designed wife to Ferdinando's son
with the duchy of Milan." The Bishop revoked Pole from Trent to
Bononye, to send him to France and Scotland with 4,000 Almains and as
many Frenchmen to stir the Scots against England. "It is incredible
how the said Bishop and the Roman clergy is inflamed against the same,
fearing beyond opinion th'amplification of your Majesty's empire which
tendeth to their ruin." The practices between the Bishop and the French
king are hotter than ever before, and doubtless they machinate against
Henry. Letters from Vienna of the 17th speak of small provision against
the Turks, and doubt the Turk's coming this year; but Ferdinando has
sent his wife and children to Boheme. There is small accord in the Diet
of Noremberg, even in this extreme peril. Venice, 26 May, 1543.

604. The Queen of Hungary to Chapuys.
By her letters of the 22nd and the papers therewith, satisfied the
chief point of his letters of the 17th and 20th inst.; and she is accordingly
despatching the king of arms, Toison d'Or, towards Calais to await him
of England and (upon Chapuys's writing to him) to fulfil his charge. Was
pleased to hear of the King's good will to the accomplishment of the
treaty, who rightly considers that the sooner he declares himself the more
perplexed the French will be. Although de Roeulx has, since Chapuys
wrote, retired, so as not to weary his men now, when no great exploit is
possible for want of forage, she hopes that the King will still order his
captain of Guisnes to have intelligence with De Roeulx and devise with
him for the damaging of the common enemy. Is writing comformably to
De Roeulx; and, if the captain (who will obey the command to the letter)
has only been written to to join with De Roeulx in the field, Chapuys
shall help to get him ordered to assist De Roeulx in any case when
required. Since the King is so willing to send men over sea, she will not
press for the defensive assistance, under the treaty, until the French
approach nearer, although she has news that the King of France assembles
on this side Paris and will throw all his strength upon the countries of
Chapuys did well to impress the King with the unreasonableness of the
Duke of Cleves, who should incur the indignation of all Princes by so
absolutely refusing what his Commissioners so solemnly promised : but, as
she wrote before, the Duke has so well learnt the school of France that he
uses more wilfulness than reason. It was also prudent to excuse the
declaration which the King wished to make to the Duke's agent under
condition of declaring himself enemy; which would not be to the
reputation either of the Emperor or the King, as the Duke would almost
certainly persist in his refusal and the French and Clevois would attribute
the declaration to some request made from hence. Thinks it better that
the King should declare himself the Duke's enemy according to the 6th
article of the treaty, and dismiss his agent in such a manner that the cause
of it may not be disguised, for the Clevois always persuade their friends
that the King will not be their enemy. Chapuys shall use dexterity to get
the King to declare against Cleves, whose favour in Germany is already
much diminished by his refusal of the truce, which the Estates of the
Empire made sure of on his side.
Wrote in her last that the King's ambassadors would know what the
Emperor will do this season before concluding particulars of the enterprise,
which they do not consider to be settled. Cannot answer this until
news comes of the Emperor s arrival in Italy and subsequent decision,
which she expects daily and will at once report to the King. As the
season advances, and the Emperor and King could hardly be ready for any
great exploit at the day named, Chapuys shall do well to persuade the
King that, if unable to make enterprise against France, he may assist the
Emperor to continue the war either with money or men.
Cleves continues to besiege Heynsberge, where he has lost many men;
and she is sending the Prince of Orenges with 3,000 horse and a good
number of foot to encamp between the enemies and Maistricht and harass
The English ambassadors have presented Chapuys's letters of the
12th inst. and required the exemption of English merchants from the
impost of the centiesme. To induce them to give up their suit, she said
that she would not dispute whether it was in accordance with the
intercourse but hoped that the King would not prejudice the Emperor by
stopping it (for if the English were exempt all other strangers must also
be so) especially as the proceeds were to be used against the common
enemy and she was content to give his subjects letters of non prejudice.
The ambassadors answered that the tenor of the intercourse was clear, and
the intercourse was confirmed by the treaty of closer amity and the King
had absolutely declared that he would not consent. Replied only that she
had no notice of this from Chapuys. Requires him again to pray the
King, for her sake, to consent to it, at least for one year; and meanwhile
she has decided to levy the impost, and therefore requires to know with
diligence if it causes any irritation. If the King persists in stopping the
impost he ought to stop all imposts made by himself and his predecessors
since the year 1445, because the intercourse of the year 20, confirmed by
the treaty of closer alliance, says that Flemish subjects should pay no
other gabelles than those due by the intercourse of 1495, which says that
the imposts paid are to be such as were taken before 1445, since which
time the English have imposed several. Before insisting upon this, waits
to see what the King will finally do about the centiesme.
While writing, has received letters from De Roeulx enclosing one to him
from the Captain of Guisnes, to the effect that, after the 2,500 archers and
200 horse which the King is to send hither arrive, he is charged to assist
De Roeulx against the French if they invade Flanders on the frontiers
adjoining the English in case De Roeulx will complete the destruction of
the castles and villages of Boulognois. The Captain's orders are therefore
entirely conditional; and Chapuys must see if he can obtain others.

On the French ambassador's writing that, notwithstanding the letter to
North and Pope to set Frenchmen at large, one Estienne de Val remained
in the Marshalsea, a letter was written to North and Pope to dismiss him
like the rest. Letters sent to Sir Chr. Morres to deliver to Nic. Gainsforth,
deputy of lord Gray, captain of Hampnes castle, certain powder, &c.

606. The Privy Council to Seymour and Wotton.
The King has received your sundry letters, accepts your
proceedings, and has willed us to signify that, yesterday, at high mass, in
presence of the Ambassador, Council, gentlemen of the Privy Chamber and
a great number of other gentlemen and chaplains, he ratified and sware to
the treaty with the Emperor; reading the oath himself, bareheaded. This
day Garter, the principal herald, is despatched to Calais to attend the
coming of the herald from the Regent and accompany him to the French
Court. This you shall signify to the Regent and require her to take order
(as the treaty covenants) for men to be sent to the sea within a month
after the intimation of war.

608. Seymour and Wotton to Henry VIII.
This day the Queen sent for them, to participate news from her
ambassador in England; which was that Henry purposed to ratify the
league on Corpus Christi Day and would that the defiance to the enemy
should go forth with speed (and therefore she sends a herald to Calais
to-morrow, to await the coming of Henry's and carry out the instructions
already sent to Henry), and that, although the defiance be not yet
executed, Henry would let the captain of Guisnes with 2,500 archers and
300 (sic) horsemen join Mons. de Reux in following his enterprise in
Boulognois. De Reux has retired, after doing much hurt, but his men
shall be soon ready if necessary; and she thanks Henry for his forwardness.
The Ambassador also signified that the French ambassadors (fn. 1) in Scotland
had maigre chere of the Governor, who had all the realm at his command
save one castle or port (fn. 2) which is to come in by a certain day. She said
the French boasted that Henry was offering them friendship; which she
thought was "but a French tale." She hears nothing of the Emperor's
arrival in Italy.
The siege of Heynsborgh continues. De Corrieres, to-day, says that the
Prince of Orange, with 24 ensigns of lantzknechts, besides horsemen,
shall encamp over the Mase to levy it. The French king comes himself,
with a great power, and they here would prevent his joining the Clevoys.

612. Chapuys to Charles V.
Received by way of Flanders the Emperor's letters of 12 April, and
afterwards, by his man, the duplicate of them and the power mentioned
therein, in virtue of which the ratification and oath were, the day before
yesterday, made with the same solemnities; as appears by documents
which he will forthwith send to the Queen Regent, as commanded,
together with the treaty signed by the Emperor with the great seal which
his man brought. As to the specification of claims (pretenses) and other
quarrels, besides those mentioned in the treaty, the King admitted those
contained in the Emperor's said letters and also those added since by
Grandvelle, as appears by the copy (herewith) of the instructions of the
king of arms. The King agrees that the Emperor's king of arms should
rather protest to continue the war than to make a new defiance.
Touching the obtaining of the King's express declaration of Holstein and
Cleres for common enemies the Council have advised Chapuys to defer urging
it until the defiance is made to France and things are hotter, when the King
would do it much more willingly. Besides they affirmed that it was
unnecessary, being comprised in the generality. The King seems to intend first
to send privately to the said Dukes to warn them to desist from troubling the
Emperor. With regard to the common invasion the Emperor will have already
learnt the King's inclination, by what Chapuys has written to Grandvelle,
and at present he can add nothing therein to his letters (copy herewith)
to the Queen Regent. The Emperor will likewise have learnt the release
of the Cardinal of Scotland and events there. Thanks for acceptance of
his services in achieving the treaty. London, 29 May 1543.

Since his last, of the 20th inst., has received hers of the 22nd,
with the instructions, which are approved by the King and Council. The
only alterations made appear by the copy herewith and seem immaterial,
although the English have omitted in the said copy a certain clause which
they put in the article "Si le roy de France voulloit furnir aux choses
dessusdits en dedans dix jours," viz., the addition "ou donner pleges
suffisantes pour ce faire." The King was pleased with her concurrence in
his opinion that the kings of arms ought to refer to one another. Thinks
that Thoyson d'Or will be already at Calais. If he were late it would much
displease the King, who has sent thither in haste Garter, his first king of
Where she desires to know what passed between the King and him touching
the enterprise for this year against France; has not gone beyond what
Grandvelle wrote, and never said what the Ambassadors reported to her,
although he has said (as of himself, like all the rest) that he believed that
the Emperor would take counsel and advice of the King touching the place
of entry. All that he has said has been as of himself and on the
supposition that the Emperor should have the opportunity, and she knows
the occasion, viz., a little want of willingness to listen to the enterprise
this year, as he wrote on the 18th, although these ministers always give
out that they are ready. When shown that they had not provided victuals,
they have answered that they had already put 1,000 qr. of wheat in barrel
and 4,000 to make beer, and as for flesh they expected to get some from
the enemies, and that, touching carriage, ships for passage and assistance
of victuals, the ambassadors with her were specially charged to learn what
aid the King could have; but when Chapuys came to speak of the horse
they were perplexed and could not answer, especially when he said that
they could not get those of Flanders as the Emperor would need them.
In the end they said that that did not matter and they would always be
able to get some. Believes that the principal thing with which he cooled
them is the lateness of the Emperor's passage.
Because Chapuys was unwell on the day of the Holy Sacrament, (fn. 7) the
oath was put off till Sunday last, when all passed in the requisite fashion, as
she will see by the documents (pieces), which he will send as soon as possible,
some of which are still in the hands of the secretaries. After the oath
Chapuys presented her letters and declared his credence; which the King
took well, saying with a sigh that it was marvellous that nothing was yet
heard of the Emperor's passage, and that the season was already so
advanced that the proposed enterprise would be difficult, and that the other
matter, of Montreul (of which Chapuys spoke), was more feasible and very
important, and ought to be kept in view, and he for his part would not
sleep. Afterwards he said that he was advertised that Vendosme was at
Montreul with a good company of men of war, waiting for the rest; and
that the king of France had sworn not to desist from war in Harthois till
its entire conquest, an obstinacy which might prove his ruin, for it would
be easy to defend that quarter if the Emperor's troops were not occupied
elsewhere, with whom he may join as many of his as seems good. And
here he prayed Chapuys to write again to suggest reinstating the truce
with Cleves, as when Cleves, like Scotland was detached from France, the
enemy would be stripped of every intelligence.
Has heard divers times from those of the Council that their affair with
Scotland stands well. The four ambassadors are still here and well
treated. The fifth, viz., George Douglaz, brother of the earl, is returned
in haste to Scotland and will be here shortly with some good resolution.
Duke Philip, under colour of offering himself and men of war to the
King's service in case of necessity, came to resume the old question of the
marriage with the Princess, giving out among other things that he had
promise of the Lutheran League that in case of the death of the Elector
Palatine he would be preferred to his uncle Duke Frederic and Otto Henry
his elder brother. But all availed him little, and he has gone with a
present worth 2,000 cr. Has failed to persuade the Council to take the
imposts in good part, and they have finally prayed him earnestly to
supplicate her to accept the present which their merchants wish to make
her instead. By what he writes and what the ambassadors tell her she
will recognise whether the despatches to them are communicated to him,
and can act accordingly. London, 29 May 1543.

ships, for conducting of which he stayed at Marseilles, the Isles of Eres,
and divers places in the Ryver of Geane. Describes manœuvres at
Marseilles, where two French galleys shot at the Emperor's galley, but
were driven off by Ant. Dorea. The Emperor appeared right welcome
here and was salnted with gun shot. The same morning the Nuncio
departed hence to the Bishop of Rome at Bononye, on whose return it will
be known whether there shall be a meeting; which in any case would be
merely "for a visage that th' Emperor doth not contemn." The duke of
Castro, the Bishop's son, was here to receive the Emperor, and departed
on the 29th with the duke of Cameryne, either to arrange for the meeting
to be at Plaisance or Mantua, or else to reconcile the duchess of Cameryne
with the Duke. Guasto, with 200 horse and his guard came hither to
meet the Emperor, as did the duke of Florence. Mons. de Boysie, Master
of the Horses, lately returned hither; and from Sicily returned the
Viceroy, to accompany the Emperor to Flanders, while Aguilar remains
viceroy of Sicily. Some marvel that the Emperor comes so feeble, considering
the doing of the Frenchmen and the Turk's coming to Hungary,
but it is thought he intends to do his feats in Flanders.
Before leaving Spain, besides letters by Mr. Chamberlayne and Atkynson,

Bilbao and St. Sebastian's. Sends copies of these letters herewith. From

Will leave this on Saturday next, 2nd inst. (sic) and go straight to
Mantua without sojourning anywhere unless with the Pope, two or three
days only, and thence proceed towards Trent. Granvelle meets him at
Mantua in order that the final determination may be the sooner taken
concerning the Emperor's passage to the Low Countries. Will then send
particular instructions. Gennes, 30 May 1543.

619. Wallop to the Council.
This morning at 5 o'clock, received their letters of the 28th, and
will speak again with De Rieulx who is now on the borders of
Hennowey with Mons. Darscott besieging a castle called Guy in Terras,
probably the new castle which the French began to build two years
past. Will write him the King's pleasure, so that he may either come
himself or send his opinion. As to the taking of Mounstrell with the
aid of 3,000 footmen and 600 horse, De Rieulx did not speak of the
keeping of it, "because it was doubtful whether it should be taken or
not, as shall appear unto your Lordships by a memory of his own
hand which I required of him." He said, if the King should send
over his great power, he was sure to take it or force the French to
battle and then take it; victuals might always be conveyed thither by the
river that comes from St. Omez, on which stand many peels and strong
castles of the Emperor's; he had to go towards Hennowey, but would be
glad, when the King's power came, to resort to Calais and consult for the
taking and keeping of Mounstrell and other things to be done this year.
Asked him, for the course to be made with the 3,000 foot and 600 horse,
what number he would bring; and he said the number he had last in
Boullonoyez, viz. 6,000 foot, 1,400 horse, 2 cannons and 4 fawconetts.
Has no other news than he wrote yesterday to Mr. Wriothesley, herewith
enclosed. Guisnes, 31 May. Signed.
Pp. 2. Add. Endd. : 1543.
ii. Memorandum (enclosed in the preceding) to the effect that if the
King furnishes a succour of 2,000 foot and 200 horse it should, upon the
writer's notice to the captain of Guisnes, be sent straight to this place of
Munequebrughe; but if the King will make a course with 3,000 English
and 600 horse Montreul might be taken by surprise or the Boulenois
wasted; and if the King will make a great army Montreul could be taken
or the enemy forced to give battle. For the aforesaid course 2 cannons,
2 demicannons and 2 sight pieces are necessary and should have horses
belonging to them.

Has received his letter showing that he is informed that goods
and money of Thos. Garnettes are "restrained in my hands by the customer's
deputy of Weymouth." Explains that the goods were entrusted
to him by Thos. [Ga]rnet and Gregory Saltford to be sold for Sir Wm.
Baily, alderman of London, in repayment of money lent upon the ship
and goods, at Burduose, by John Towler, Baily's deputy. The customer
took nothing but the King's custom and prisage. Melcome, 31 May.

621. Petrus A Boes to Seymour.
After wishing victory and happiness to Henry VIII., King of
England and France, "duci Herlandiæ (Nerlandæ in the address) et
domino in Wals," the writer reminds the Ambassador of his offer to levy
12,000 footmen upon conditions which the King prescribed to him by
letter brought by bearer; which letter he now sends (hearing that the
Ambassador is in the Emperor's Court), and intimates that he is ready to
provide the men (except against the Emperor or Electors). Bearer is a
most intimate friend, who can treat the most secret matters and make
any contract, but, if required, the writer himself will come to the
Ambassador, or to the King. "Pridie K. Junias."

Commission to Chr. Barkar, alias Garter king of Arms, to declare,
jointly with a herald of the Emperor Charles V., Henry VIII.'s ultimatum
to Francis I., in accordance with the King's instructions; and, if
satisfactory answer is not made within ten days, to declare war.

d'armes pour en faire ostention s'il en sera"—(breaks off abruptly)

d'armes ou herault que le roy de France et d'Engleterre vouldra envoyer
en sa compaignie."
To go, provided with his commission as king of arms, to Calais, and
there await the coming of the king of arms of England. When ready to
proceed, they shall send a trumpet or other messenger to the next good
town of France for the French king's safe conduct. That obtained, they
shall go to the French Court and to the King's presence, of whom De
Phalaix, without salutation or recommendation, shall require liberty to
express his charge; and, on receiving that assurance, shall say as follows :
—That the Emperor (considering the present troubles of Christendom,
chiefly due to the king of France, by reason of this war, contrary to his
treaties and promises, and without preliminary defiance, recommenced,
and that the Turk daily advances in invading the lands of the Christians),
with the advice of the King of England, his ally, has sent him (De
Phalaix) to require Francis, in the first place, to consider that the Turk
for years past has striven to subdue the countries of the Christians, and
therefore the Emperor requires him as a king bearing the title of "tres
Chrestien" to leave all intelligence with the Turk and withdraw his
ambassadors and agents, and also to indemnify the King of the Romans
and states of the Empire for the damage they have received from the
Turk at his solicitation, restore Maran to the King of the Romans, pay
the King of France and England all that is owing by virtue of past
treaties (as that King's king of arms will declare), (fn. 8) cease making
war on the Emperor, and pay all expenses caused thereby,
restore all lands which he and his predecessors have usurped
from the Empire, and reinstate the duke of Savoy. (fn. 9) Doing this, the
Emperor, with the consent of the King of France and England, will be
content to make peace with him. Then, after the king of arms
of England has likewise declared his charge, (fn. 9) if the French king demands
the proposition in writing, De Phalaix shall give it, desiring answer
within ten days. If asked whether he has charge to accord conditions of
peace, De Phalaix shall say that, if the above points are satisfied within
ten days, the Emperor will depute commissioners, with those of England,
to accord the peace. If the French king refuse the request, or make
excuses (as is probable), or defer answer beyond the ten days, or will not
give any answer, De Phalaix shall say that if he will not agree to such
reasonable requests, the Emperor summons him to accomplish them all,
and also to restore to the Emperor and his successors the duchy of
Burgundy, counties of Charloys, Auxerrois and Masconnois, vicomté of
Auxone, "seigneuries de Chastel Synon, Bar sur Seine et resort de
St. Laurens, Amyens, Abbeville, Corbye, Peronne, et St. Quentin" (fn. 10) with
recompense of fruits levied during their occupation, also to restore to the
King of France and England all detained from him (as his king of arms
will declare); likewise to restore to the Emperor the towns, &c. of
Hesdin, Astenay, Ivoix and Dampvilliers and to the Empire, the countries
of Provence, Daulphiné and others adjacent; moreover to fulfil the
treaties of Madrid and Cambray; and also to restore to the abp. of
Valence the 25,000 cr. which he was constrained to pay, together with
damages for his long and unjust captivity. Otherwise the Emperor
will, with the aid of God and assistance of the King of France and
England, pursue the war which the French king has so unreasonably
commenced, and will not listen to truce or amity without the knowledge
and consent of the King of France and England.
De Phalaix shall then wait while the king of arms of England declares
his charge; and shall note all that is said to him, so as to be able to write
it at his return. In going and returning he shall avoid speaking of the
war or of the Emperor and King.

3. Modern copy of the above instructions from a Brussels MS., which
contains the following additional matter at the end, viz. :—
In going and returning, &c. (as in § 2), so as to give no occasion of
jealousy, he shall speak with no one except in presence of the English
herald. [In margin : That is, if he shall speak to the Queen of France,
and it seems not.] The Council has debated whether the Emperor's king
of arms could not speak for both princes, especially if the English should
so require, and have thought best that each should speak for his own prince,
as well to avoid debate if the King of England wished to use words which
could not be entirely avouched, such as supreme head of the English
Church, as also to demonstrate that each prince takes the affair to heart.
