(p.1) Chapter 1 Aims and Achievements of Charles the Bold's Relations with Italy
Charles the Bold and Italy (1467–1477)
Liverpool University Press

This chapter shows how Charles the Bold's dealings with Italy fit into the wider framework of his diplomatic activity. It explains why his relations with the peninsula's largest states were both far closer and more continuous than those maintained by his predecessors; and assesses the aims and achievements of these relations in terms of his success in obtaining the diplomatic and material assistance which he clearly hoped to extract from his Italian partners. Such an analysis helps set the scene for some of the themes of the later chapters, which will investigate both the activities of the Italians at the Burgundian court and the extent of their many-sided influence on the duke himself.
