This chapter presents Jeanne de Jussie's chronicle about the reformation in Geneva. The chronicle discusses what was done in Geneva because of Eidguenotry and heretics and the Lutheran sect, beginning in 1526. This was the time when the Holy Father Pope Clement VII was in the Holy Apostolic See, and the most illustrious, most high, powerful, and formidable Lord Charles III, and the most illustrious, excellent Lady Madame Beatrice of Portugal, Monseigneur the Lord of Bresse, and the most excellent Lady Catherine Charlotte were in the magnificent Duchy of Savoy. Some of the events discussed in the chronicle include garrison of those from Bern and Fribourg in Geneva; gathering of the nobles in Gaillard; siege of Geneva by the nobles of the land; the Swiss troops devastating the area around Geneva; plea from the nuns of Saint Clare to the Syndics and the Council, and other events. The Short Chronicle concludes with a brief epilogue in which Jussie describes the misfortunes suffered by the House of Savoy in 1536.
