Treaty 'Malus intercursus' between England and the Netherlands (58 words)

Historical Context Note

  • Editors


England and the Netherlands sign a commercial treaty, when Philip of Burgundy and Juana of Castile are stranded at the court of Henry VII, having been driven aground by storms on their way to Spain. This is so unfavourable to the latter that it becomes known as 'Malus intercursus', and Philip of Burgundy never actually ratifies the treaty.
