France and the Hapsburg rulers sign the Treaty of Blois. Louis XII
thus arranges a dynastic alliance with Holy Roman Emperor
Maximilian I and his son, Philip the Handsome of Burgundy. Louis
arranges for his daughter Claude to marry Philip's son Charles (the
future Emperor Charles V). In the event of Louis dying without a
son, Charles and Claude are to succeed to Milan, Blois and
Brittany. A secret part of the treaty allows Louis to retain Milan
in return for a payment of 100,000 ducats. He also plans to attack
Naples in concert with Maximilian.
