France and Spain sign the Treaty of Blois. By its terms, Ferdinand I of Aragon agrees to marry Navarre noblewoman Germaine de Foix. If this marriage produces an heir, then the crown of Spain will pass to this child rather than to Juana's husband Philip of Burgundy, with whose policies Ferdinand disagrees. The Treaty also addresses the ownership of Naples: Louis gives up his rights over the territory to Germaine, but if Ferdinand dies without issue, then France will recover those portions of the Neopolitan kingdom that were assigned to Spain by the 1500 Treaty of Granada.
