This chapter continues the discussion of preparations for the meeting between Henry VIII and Francis I. The meeting eventually became an international event that involved enough people to make a respectably large early-modern army. Transporting, accommodating, ordering, feeding and watering, protecting and entertaining this vast concourse of people was akin to organizing a royal military campaign. In February 1520 Cardinal Wolsey drew up a treaty for both kings to ratify, which set out the prospective arrangements for their meeting.
