The Field of Cloth of Gold

This chapter considers the outcome of the Field of Cloth of Gold. At Lyon, on 29 May 1522, Clarenceux King of Arms declared war on Francis I. Henry VIII defied Francis on the grounds that he had broken the treaties of London and of Ardres, principally by his covert and overt attacks on the emperor in Luxembourg and on Navarre and by stopping the annual payments due to Henry. The war that followed lasted for three years.
