Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the main objective which is to prevent France and the Emperor from co-operating and so the best way to achieve this was to encourage peace between the Emperor and the Protestants - 'tagree themperour and thalmaynes by all meanes possible'. It is clear, then, that Paget saw the long-term interests of England and France as contradictory. Other than the accustomed service, there was a 'deploration' in French in which Henry was highly praised. This seems to have been the Oraison, composed by the scholar Jacques Peletier du Mans, which indeed focuses on Henry's cultural achievements as restorer of letters and careful patron. As for Boulogne, he had not heard of any new agreement but thought the English intended to keep it while giving hope of returning it. It was a fitting end to a relationship which had shaped Anglo-French relations for 40 years.
