The Field of Cloth of Gold

Glenn Richardson

Yale University Press

This chapter first describes the accession and monarchy of King Henry VIII and King Francis I. It then details the events leading up to the 1518 Treaty of London and the subsequent Anglo-French alliance. The spectacular embassies and receptions of late 1518 can be seen as the conscious preludes to the Field of Cloth of Gold itself.

Keywords:   Francis I, Henry VIII, Treaty of London, Anglo-French alliance
