Francis I of France and Holy Roman Emperor Charles V sign the Truce of Nice, which agrees to suspend hostilities between the two powers for a decade. By the terms of the agreement, both countries retain the conquests they have acquired in the war, meaning that the Duke of Savoy loses all his territory except Nice. France regains Hesdin and wins Mirandola, while the Swiss retain control of the Pays de Vaud.
