dec 23, 1482 - Treaty of Arras

Description:

Burgundy and Flanders (the Burgundian Netherlands) had long been fought over between the French and the Hapsburgs. In 1477, the Hapsburg-Burgungian marriage angered the French, who considered Burgundy and Flanders to be territories of France. Louis XI ravaged Flanders until he could force Maximilian I to accept the Treaty of Arras which declared French Burgundy part of the kingdom of France. Since the Hapsburgs never renounced their claim to Burgundy, war continued intermittently between France and Maximilian.
