1525 > The 'Treaty of the More', negociated by Cardinal Wolsey, was agreed by Henry VIII and Louise of Savoy, who was acting as regent while Francis I was emprisoned by Imperial forces. He had been captured at the battle of Pavia. It was an about-face for Wolsey as he had, in the recent past, been allying England with the Empire, rather than France. By the terms of the treaty, Henry VIII agreed to help secure Francis I's release, and to give up claims to several French territories. In return, France was to award England with a pension of £20,000 per year. The treaty was known as the Treaty of the More because negotiations took place at Wolsey's property in Hertfordshire, 'The More'.
