Instructions of the Emperor to his sister, the queen [of Hungary],
concerning the government of the Low Countries.
The Council to consist of the Queen as Regent, Everard de la Marche,
cardinal of Liege, John Carondelet, archbp. of Palermo, the marquis of
Arschot, the count of Buren, lord Fiennes, the count of Gaures, lord
Beures, the count of Hoochstrate, lord Sempy, lord Berghes, knts. of the
Order, lords Wallain and Molenbais, and John Hannart, viscount of Liedekerke;
with John Marnicx, lord of Marnicx and Thoulouze, as secretary.
The Emperor's councillors, and the other knights of the Order, will also
belong to the Council, when there. The archbp. of Palermo will propose
matters to them, and report the resolution to the Queen. The Queen may
summon others in addition. The Council is to meet whenever she thinks
fit, and those absent from court must attend when summoned. This
Council is only to treat of the principal affairs, touching the state and safety
of the country, without meddling with matters of justice, law, &c., unless the
Queen thinks them of sufficient importance to be treated by the Council of
State. The opinions of members are to be taken, beginning at the highest
or the lowest, as the Queen thinks best. The opinion of the majority is to
be taken, unless the Queen thinks otherwise. The secretary shall keep a
register of proceedings. All members must carry out unanimously the
resolution of the Council, whatever their opinion. The secretary shall draw
up despatches in accordance with the minutes of the Archbishop, and they
shall be examined by the Council. When an answer has to be given concerning
affairs concluded, the Council shall refer it to the Queen, or to whoever
has to make the answer. The Councillors are to take an oath of
secresy, and inform the Queen of breaches thereof. Members should retire
when any matter concerning themselves is being discussed. Packets shall
be sent and received by the secretary, and taken to the Queen unopened.
He must also keep the ciphers. Brussels, 1 Oct. 1531.

460. Chapuys to Charles V.
Three days ago, having received your Majesty's letters of the 22nd
ult., I informed the Queen of what concerned her. She will write to you in
two days. In order to ascertain how this Court regards the interview of
your Majesty and the king of France, as I had no instructions from you to
inform the King of it, and also the documents (pieces) mentioned in the said
letters had been forgotten, I sent yesterday a servant of mine to the duke of
Norfolk on pretence of obtaining the release of the goods of some Spanish
merchants. The Duke asked him if the report of the said interview was
true. The man said it was, and that he thought I was only awaiting news of
the report of Mons. de Balançon to go and inform the King of it. At this
the Duke was appalled, and got one of the Court to entertain my man, and
keep him waiting while he went into the King's chamber, where he
remained nearly an hour. On his coming out there met with him the Chancellor
and the earls of Wiltshire and Sussex (Succez), and after a long
conference he called my man, and in presence of those lords bade him tell me
that he had informed the King of the news of the said interview, and that the
King said he was very desirous of the perfect unity of Christendom, and
would not hinder it; nevertheless, it might perhaps not be effected, or it
might be no great affair, and lead to nothing of consequence. And he smiled,
as if in mockery, meaning it to be believed that his good brother was so firm
a friend that there was no fear the one would do anything important without
the other's knowledge, and that within three days I should see clear evidence
of the said great amity;—although in the end, when he replied within three
days, the Duke prolonged it to eight. He also told my man the King was
very glad to hear of what had taken place in Barbary, and thanked me for
having informed him. As to the merchants, he would do as I desired.
I thank you for remembering my necessity.

* The Pope said to him, among other things,
that at the interview Francis would accuse him to the Emperor of being the
cause of what had passed about the Council and in England; but he assured
him this was not true, and he would have given much money if the King had
not fallen into this madness, and now would give it if he would leave his
madness; and the agents of both Kings have never heard anything else
from him. As to the Council, he assured the Cardinal that Tarbes and
others, thinking to please him, had often offered him that the Council should
not be held, or that the French king should not come without insisting on
terms which would make it impossible; but he always answered that he only
desired the good of Christendom and the unanimity of princes, without
which a Council would have no good result.

Their letters dated Rome were delivered on the 24th Sept. Is

written to the bp. of Ancona a letter which you shall present to him and
to other cardinals. If all that we have done is fruitless, and they will
proceed so precipitately, before sentence given, all are to leave Rome.
We do not think that our ambassadors should attend the court of one who
shows such hostility to us. As to your remark that Ancona imagines
it would be very difficult for us to prove that Cæsar interferes with the
case, we desire you to remember, whenever occasion offers, to urge that
the Pope does nothing except at the instigation of the Emperor; and the
Pope says that the Emperor will not have the cause submitted to an
independent place; so that the Emperor is not a mere part, but the whole
in this matter. The rumour of danger from the Turks is baseless, and we
hear that he has already sustained great defeats from the Sophy, also that
letters have been sent from the Great Master of Rhodes that the Turks
have no intention against us. It is a mere ruse. It is ridiculous that the
Pope and the Emperor, after he has collected such vast treasures from all
parts of his dominions, and received a large sum from the French king,
should ask aid of others. It is an attempt to terrify the rest of the world;
and if the Pope wishes to be believed, let him settle the causes now in
controversy, and ours among the number. The duke of Savoy can defend
himself, and does not ask our aid. News has come from Flanders that
the Emperor has publicly shown to the ambassadors certain pacta between
himself and Francis to be debated on. The said King told Bryan and
Foxe that he had no intention of the kind. If the Imperialists make any
boasts, we wish you to tell the facts. Waltham, 2 Oct. Signed at the top.

1. It is bounded on the east, west, and north by the Debateable Ground,
and joins England on the south. It has always been used as a house of
prayer, and neutral between both realms. 2. It is usually specified in truces
between England and Scotland that the Debateable Ground is to be used as
common between the two realms, to be occupied from sunrise to sunset,
"with bit of mouth only," not providing specially for Cannonby. The Prior,
therefore, and his servants, could have no sustenance, but that he pays yearly
to the captain of Carlisle for the King 13s. 4d. for the enclosure and building
which he occupies. The Scots allege that this sum is for custom of the
inhabitants; which is not true. They pay no custom in England, but come
freely to Carlisle market, as Englishmen. 4. As further proof that it is
English, they pay yearly to the captain of Carlisle, for the waste they make
in the woods, all the "tree vessale" that is used in the castle. 5. The Scotch
allege also that redress was made to Scotland for goods taken from Cannonby.
This is not true. The redress was made because the Englishmen drove the
goods through Liddisdale, "which is mere Scotland," for which reason the
goods were said to have been driven out of Scotland; but if they had driven
them straight from Cannonby to England, the bill would not have been filed,
nor redress made. 6. If they say it was filed for Cannonby only, they doubtless
have matter of record why it ought to be done, and the composition of its
exemption from the Debateable Ground, and in whose time and by whom it

was never farmer, and had nothing to do with it. I beg you will give

467. Benet to Henry VIII.
Received on the 28th ult. the King's letters, dated Hamptyl, the
14th of the same. Went accordingly alone to the Pope on the 1st, and
showed to him the two points in the King's letter to Benet apart, enlarging
on them with such vehemence that he remained perplexed and sore troubled.
Could get nothing from him then, but that "his mind was never to incuriate
your Grace for nothing earthly, nother for no man's pleasure," and that
the Emperor desired nothing of him but justice. I said, if I were of his
Holiness' counsel I would advise him not to allege this; for to proceed in
this cause, according to the Emperor's will, when he says the Emperor
only desired justice, shows that the justice he desires is only his own
pleasure. To confirm this "I brought in the Emperor's answer which
his Holiness showed me concerning the commission of the cause in loco
indifferenti, which, as I wrote, was that the Emperor [would never] consent
that the cause should be committed out of this court." And because the
Emperor wishes the cause to be tried here, and process to go forth "precipitously,"
I said his Holines would follow the same, "as it appeareth most
clearly by that his Holiness (sic) that within so few audience they should
come to sentence, and leave justice." So his Holiness will excuse the
Emperor, and take all the blame upon himself. The Pope said I misinterpreted
both the Emperor's answer and his own saying. Replied that it
was not a question of words but facts, and referred further to the Pope's
sayings to my lord of Worcester, Sir Gregory and himself jointly, and also
to himself apart, showing that he regarded not the means alleged by us
for stopping the process, but only to follow the Emperor's pleasure that
process should be made precipitously. In the end the Pope was so perplexed
he could not tell what to say. So, as cardinal Farnesius, to whom
your Highness has written, will not be here till the latter end of the month,
and cardinal Ravenna has no greater fear than that it should be known
to the Cæsarians that your Highness has written to him in this matter,
I thought good that we should show his Holiness what you had written
to us there, in order to impress him more fully with the troubles and
inconvenients mentioned in your letter, and to confirm what I had said to
him about dangers inevitably to ensue. This was approved of by my lord
of Worcester and Sir Gregory, and on the 3rd inst. we showed him the
letter, advising him to avoid the dangers therein expressed as likely to
ensue if the process should be made here against the King.
While reading the letter the Pope showed himself sore moved [when
he heard that your Highness had written to the Cardinals, saying it seemed
that your Highness would disn'ge (disengage?) him and the Cardinals (fn. 1) ],
as you will see by the common letter. In the end, could get no resolution
what he would do, for as yet he has no answer from those he consults on
those matters. As far as I can perceive by Sir Gregory, his Holiness
consults with cardinal Ancona, as I think you will find by his letter apart.
I expect no good resolution by him, as he is very obstinate hitherto against
the matter excusatory, but I shall make good diligence to remove him from

Regrets that his Highness should think him remiss, or too light of credence.
Assures him his suspicions are unfounded. On the 3rd a citation was
read in the contradict (i.e. for contempt of court) against the King, and
another on the 5th. The King will learn their tenor by Mr. Karne's letter,
and will see what order has been taken by the advice of his counsel here
in the matter. The cause shall be as well followed as if our lives depended
on it. 6 Oct. 1531.

Julius was asked to dispense for the present King's marriage; 7, that Pope
Julius did so for the preservation of peace; 8, that the king of England
married her in facie Ecclesiæ per verba de præsenti; 9, that the King

468. The Divorce.
Henry, seeing that it was useless to argue upon the Pope's dispensing
power, endeavoured to find flaws in the bull of Julius II., to furnish his
successor with a plea for declaring the dispensation null and void. The
Queen's proxy at Rome presented a document, in which all the facts, article
by article, are attested on oath, to prove that the motives mentioned in the
bull are real. The chief motive was the establishment of peace between the
two kings, which was accomplished by the marriage. Arthur and Katharine
both publicly protested that the marriage had not been consummated, owing
to his ill health. On his death, 2 July 1502, in order to settle the question of
restitution of the dowry, the second marriage was effected. The same reasons
would now forbid its dissolution. The Emperor, the kings of Hungary and
Portugal, nephews of the Queen, would take offence at the insult offered her,
and war would be the consequence. Secondly, Arthur being prince of
Wales, on his death that principality became the property of his widow;
and, considering its importance, it was not likely that she would have been
suffered to enjoy it peaceably, and it would have been necessary for her to
implore the assistance of her family, which would certainly have broken the
peace between the two countries. Thirdly, in addition to the principality of
Wales, and the amount of her dowry, she would have been entitled to retain
all the valuable presents called toralia, given her on the day of her marriage,
none of which would have been willingly restored to her. In this document,
the Pope's authority is asserted to be unlimited. Dispensing power is
attributed to him, even in cases of the nearest relations, as brothers and
sisters, especially when the suppliants are princes and kings.

472. Chapuys to Charles V.
Notwithstanding the king of France must have declared to your
Ambassador that henceforth he would not permit any discussion concerning
the divorce, nevertheless the canonists of the University of Paris have put
out a determination,—of which I send you a copy. It has pleased the King
in the matter of the excusator; but besides, by concluding that the Pope
ought to commit the trial of the cause to some place not suspected, the King
is by no means pleased. He pretends that his prelates, by their ordinary
jurisdiction, and without any commission from the Pope, have a right to try
it, and that it must be in his kingdom; and he alleges certain councils
which are totally against him,—of which I have sent a copy to Mai. I think
this is the reason that Dr. Fox has returned to France, and also to learn the
news of his negotiations, as likewise what will happen at Rome before
Parliament begins. To get these measures in order, Parliament has been
prorogued for 25 days, viz., to Monday after the Feast of All Saints. The
lady fears no one here more than the bishop of Rochester, for it is he who
has always defended the Queen's cause, and she has therefore sent to persuade
the Bishop to forbear coming to this Parliament, that he may not catch any
sickness, as he did last year; but it is no use, for he is resolved to come and
to speak more boldly than he has ever done, should he die 100,000 times.
The Court here is delighted at the rupture of your interview with the
king of France. Joachin has persuaded them that Francis never intended
to encourage the said meeting, considering what he had told the King, to
whom he communicates not only all that happens, but his very thoughts. I
have not thought fit to set him right, as it will be more opportune when the
King talks with me, as he will do when he comes here. He is very sorry
at the death of Madame the Regent. A Spanish friar has lately arrived from
Paris, who brought the determination, who told me that a German scholar,
named Master Gervays, had been sent twice in three months to Germany to
practise for the king of France. If those who govern France were of the
same opinion as the Ambassadors here such practices would be stirred up as
well in Turkey as in Germany.
Lately, by command of the King, there has been a general description made
of strangers, as was done by the Cardinal when war was declared against you
at Burgos. Some think it betokens a commotion, others to get rid of some
of them because of the scarcity and the famine. The King has allowed the
Venetians licence to ship wool. The Nuncio has sent two briefs to the

The Ambassador has been ill, but is now better. Now that the vacation

exceptions. This letter has come sealed with the King's seal, but not

Sends a translation of letters from Augustin, dated 7 Oct. 1531.
He had previously written of the capture of the island of Modon in Greece,
and sent letters from the doge of Venice to be shown to Cromwell.
Today the Emperor assembled all the spiritual and temporal lords and
burgomasters of these provinces in the palace. He and the queen Mary sat
on the throne. First the bishop of Palermo read the ancient ordinances of
the countries. Then the Emperor spoke for more than an hour, exhorting
them during his absence in Germany to be good Catholics, and not to allow
any heretical books or opinions. He spoke of the sacraments of the Church,
and mentioned the German writers who were spreading false opinions,
promising his favor if they heeded his warning, but otherwise his anger.
He then spoke of the value of money, fixing a crown of the sun at 36 placks;
and of certain sumptuary laws, which forbid the wearing of cloth of gold or
silver by any one, and the wearing of silk except by nobles, and similar
regulations about food. He concluded by exhorting them all to obey queen
Mary, who, though inexperienced, would be assisted by a prudent council.
He hesitated for a time at the word "experience," which he could not at first
think of, and he nearly passed over one of the articles in his speech.
The Chancellor replied, that they were sorry for his departure, but they
hoped that it would be beneficial to Christendom, and that he would return
soon. The count of Nassau and others could not refrain from tears. The
Queen then spoke for half an hour, but she was covered with blushes, and
spoke so low that Augustin, who was near her, could understand nothing.
The meeting lasted two hours in the afternoon. Lutheranism grows stronger,
especially since the diet of Augsburg. The [bishops] of Mayence and Cologne
will not go or send to the diet of Spires. Hears that after the Emperor
leaves Germany, they wish to marry and make their bishoprics dukedoms.
Joachim marquis of Brandenburg, the only Catholic among them, seems to
have grown warm (intepuisse), and to be quite changed. Balanzon is
expected every day. The coming of the Great Master and Admiral of
France has been talked of for some days. The French queen and her sons
are at Compiegne.
After count William's return, the Emperor tried to persuade his brother
the count of Nassau to go to Germany to strengthen the Catholics, but he
excused himself. It is thought De Praet will go, but he is no friend to the
priests. Nothing is known of what the Emperor will do. When asked
about his journey by one of the chief officers of his household, he replied
that if his shirt knew his secret he would burn it, and bade him be ready as
if he were to start in an hour.
The lord (bp.) of Liege will leave in six days, not pleased with the Emperor.
Assures Cromwell of Augustin's readiness to serve him as well as the King.
