By the treaty 'Malus Intercursus', Henry VII ended the commercial dispute with Flanders that had been running since 1493. This enabled the English Merchants Adventurers to return to Antwerp, establishing fixed trade duties which greatly aided the English wool trade. It also stipulated that Margaret of Burgundy (who had protected and supported Perkin Warbeck) would lose her dower lands if she gave refuge to any more English rebels.
