Alliances with France

  • 1526 Treaty of Madrid: Francis freed by Charles V, his sons going to Spain instead of him
  • 1526: League of Cognac -- anti-imperial league formed by Francis, but with Henry its "protector"
  • 1527: Anglo French Perpetual Peace against Charles V
    • Mary to marry a son of Francis, more pension for Henry, Charles to pay his debts to England

One main reason for Henry's friendliness with France was due to his growing obsession with French-raised Anne Boleyn.
