Charles the Bold and Italy (1467–1477): Politics and Personnel

R. J. Walsh


This is a study of Charles the Bold's diplomatic and military relations with the Italian states, taking full account of economic policy. The book makes extensive use not only of the great mass of diplomatic correspondence in the archives of Florence, Mantua, Milan, Modena and Venice, but also of Charles' financial records in the archives of Brussels and Lille. The book's use of these primary sources is complemented by the use of a wide range of secondary material. The book places Charles' reign in its wider European context.

Keywords: Charles the Bold, military relations, Italian states, economic policy, diplomatic correspondence, Florence, Mantua, Milan, Modena, Venice
