Historical Context Note

England accedes to the terms of the Treaty of Cambrai, which has been signed three weeks before between France and Spain. This agreement largely mirrors the terms of the Treaty of Madrid of three years earlier, being favourable to Charles in Italy, and requiring Francis to give up his claims to the Flemish areas that bordered France including Artois and Tournai. The treaty was negotiated by delegates of the two sovereigns, with France represented by the king's mother Louise of Savoy and Charles by his aunt Margaret of Austria, which led to its becoming known as the 'Paix des Dames'.
