In the wake of the French defeat at the Battle of Pavia, Francis I
of France and Holy Roman Emperor Charles V sign the Peace of
Madrid. This treaty is designed for the utter humiliation of
Francis, who is forced to give up the Duchy of Burgundy and his
claims to Naples, Milan, Asti, Genoa, Flanders and Artois. He also
promises not to give any aid to Navarre of Gelders, and he has to
leave his two eldest sons in Spain as hostages.
