Were treaties between Henry VII and the Archduke Philip of Burgundy, primarily for the encouragement of trade between England and the Low Countries. By the first (1496) Philip agreed not to support Perkin Warbeck, pretender to the English throne, to limit tolls, and to provide for speedy redress for merchants. Difficulties continued and the second treaty in 1506 allowed English cloth exports without duty. It was not ratified and a third treaty, in 1507, returned to the terms of the 1496 agreement.
