Treaty of London

The Treaty of London was signed in 1518 and was also known as the Treaty of Universal Peace. All European countries except Islamic Turkey were invited to London (Russia was considered to be part of Asia at the time). The treaty hoped to bind the 20 leading states of Europe into peace with one another, and thus end warfare between the states of Europe. In October 1518 it was initiated between representatives from England and France. It was then ratified by other European nations and the Pope. The agreement established a defensive league based upon the following:

The terms committed states with an active foreign policy to not only commit to a stance of non-aggression, but also to promise to make war upon any state which broke the terms of the treaty. At the time, it was thought a triumph for Thomas Wolsey and allowed Henry VII to greatly increase his standing in European political circles, to the extent that England became seen as a third major power.
