Louis XII of France breaks his alliance with Burgundy. His daughter
Princess Claude had previously been betrothed to Philip of
Burgundy's son Charles (the future Holy Roman Emperor), but the
States-General of France became hostile to this marriage, since it
would involve granting Charles the Duchies of Brittany and
Burgundy, leaving France diminished in the process. Instead, Claude
is now betrothed to her French cousin Francis of Angouleme, who was
to become Francis I of France.
