The First War with France 1512

HideShow resource information

Henry wasn't thrilled at having to work with his father's old advisors such as Archbishop Warham and Bishop Fox who were keen to preserve peace and avoid war in order to make England secure and open to alliances. 
This resulted in a peace treaty with France in 1510 much to Henry's frustration.
In 1509 the Warrior Pope Julius II brought together France, Spain and the HRE in a Holy League to attack Venice. England wasn't involved due to Henry VII's diplomacy. 
By 1511 the Holy League had run its course and France emerged as the most dominant power in Northern Italy and Louis XII's dominance was threatening the Papal States.
