A truce concluded between Charles VIII of France and Henry VII of England. The latter had revived claims from the Hundred Years War and raised an army, but little fighting took place following an invasion and Henry was bought off in return for a sum of 745,000 gold crowns paid in annual instalments. Charles was left free to proceed with his planned invasion of Italy.
