564. [1221.] MAXIMILIAN to HENRY VIII.
Hears the Pope has written that the French have intercepted letters from his Holiness to Henry, stating he had been promised the aid of the Emperor and Aragon against France, and requesting the co-operation of England. This is an artifice to assist the Venetians, contrary to the League between all the Kings. No such promise has been given, either by the Emperor or Aragon. They are determined to maintain the League, and hope the King of Hungary and Bohemia will join it. The Pope only tries to stir up dissension. Visbourg, 2 Sept. 1510.

* * * The Duke of Albany has returned from your father, of whom he made a good report to the King, and is now sending his secretary to the Emperor. * * *
P.S.—Albany called on the writer yesterday and spoke of the Emperor's willingness to have an interview with the King in Burgundy, and of the King's sending a letter by his (Albany's) secretary asking for M. de Gurce to be sent hither without delay. * * * Maréchal Darizoles has just told me (Burgo ?) that his King will shortly send an ambassador to England. However, I think he will wait until Gurce comes. Blois, 3 Sept.

Wrote last by William West, of Calais. Two posts have since come out of France and one out of Allmayne. From France, Andrea de Bourgue writes to my Lady that Maréchal Dorisell is commanded ambassador into England, probably to excuse his master's taking the letters sent from Rome to the King and exhort his Grace not to assist the Pope, for the French king intends to depose him and "do all that he can against the holy church of Rome." The Emperor holds yet with the Frenchmen, who spare no money, but my Lady hopes to convert him to such ways "as Sir Robert Wyngfeldes charge is" and Christendom requires, especially the House of Burgundy which stands in most danger of the Frenchmen. Has received divers letters from Wyngfelde, the last dated Fesen, 29th ult., where the ambassadors of Aragon and Hungary awaited the Emperor, who was expected within six days. Few Frenchmen remain with the Emperor's army against the Venetians. They retire to Vysaunce and the Venetians have recovered two towns. My Lady learns by letters that many Swysters have departed towards the Duke of Savoy's land, to serve the Pope, and say they will force the French to give them passage through Milan. Sends by bearer, John of Cant, important letters to the King and the Lord Treasurer. Begs that they may be forwarded with speed to the Lord Treasurer or, in his absence, some other of the Privy Council. Writes also to my lord of Winchester with copy of the King's letter and news in French received by my Lady, unclosed. If you read it keep the matter close. Your axe shall be sent with your mule. Pray let me know any news of the passage of the French ambassador. Brussels, 9 Sept. "Make a covering of paper" to the letters of my lord of Winchester.
Add.: Knight of the Garter, deputy of Calais.

9 Sept. 1510.—After long waiting for letters from him, despatched theirs of 15 July (copy enclosed), which, apparently, was intercepted; and, subsequently, received his of 17 July, signifying how the King of France had written of the taking of Lignano and his cessation of hostilities, and how there was good hope of alliance. Explains that the French have not changed their wily policy, but the Pope's action has forced them to withdraw and saved Italy; and that the Papal and Venetian galleys were at Piombino at the end of August about to start for the expedition of Genoa, to which the Pope's 10,000 Swiss were marching, and the French troops gone from Milan to stop them. Hostilities continue with the Duke of Ferrara and Emperor. The Pope has excommunicated the Duke, Venice has recovered the Polesine of Rovigo, and the King of Spain is sending the Pope aid from Naples, &c. War with the Emperor in which Venice is winning and the Prince of Ainalt, the Imperial commander, is dead at Verona. Released the Marquis of Mantua, at the Pope's request, and have now engaged him as their captain general.
The King to be told of the above, and urged now to win glory and avenge himself on his natural enemies; also to be thanked for sending his ambassador to the Emperor for the Signory's reconciliation, which-they still desire and for which the Pope has now sent Signor Constantino Areniti to Germany. Badoer shall excuse both the Pope and the Signory for not sending the galleys—a great loss to commerce. He must write oftener.
P.S.—Capture of Varese by the Swiss.

He must beg the King to procure him safeconduct from the Emperor and Madame Margaret for his return, and having obtained it take leave forthwith.

Madrid MS.
War in Italy.—The King of France, suspecting the Pope of secret correspondence with Genoa and Milan, has intercepted couriers with a great number of letters. Has seen one of them, from the English ambassador at Rome to the nuncio in England, asking the nuncio to urge upon the King of England to take this opportunity of recovering his own and allowing the Archduke to reconquer Burgundy. The King of France has also shown him a brief by which the Pope orders the nuncio to credit what the English ambassador writes to him. Similar briefs to Germany and Switzerland were intercepted. Cannot understand why the English ambassador should write to the nuncio and not to the King direct, nor can the French explain this. * * * Tours, 14 Sept. 1510.
