Historical Context Note

Henry VIII meets Charles V at Gravelines in France. They sign a Treaty of Calais, by which each binds the other to make no further arrangements to progress the marriage treaties that both rulers currently have with France. Although Mary Tudor is contracted to marry the Dauphin, and Charles to marry Charlotte of Valois, neither monarch now desires allegiance with France, preferring to court each other's favour.
