In 1493 . Hall's Chronicle Henry VII VII Year . In this warre and tumulteous busynes in Italy, whiche was y most terrible and sorest plague, that any man can remembre of that nacion, there was no person, no place, no private house, no noble familye, no capitayne or prince, but he was oppressed either with the heapes of the dead carcasses, or with the bloud of his frendes or subiectes, or els su tired some affliccion Iniurie or detryment. And insome wise at one tyme or another, euery maa did tast and suffre all the mischeues that apperteyned to the victory gotten by their enernyes. The which defacing & blottyng of the beutye of that countrey, sometyme called the quene of y earth, and floure of the worlde, chaunced not of her awneselfe of herawne cause or desert, but the Italians herawne suckyng chyldren opened the gappe, and made the waye of her destruccion. For at that tyme thus it chaunced, that when the potetates and seignories of Italy perceaued, that all thinge vnder them succeded, euen as they woulde desire and wishe, to their great exultacion and reioysinge: by reason whereof they sate still at home lyke sloggardes (as women be accustomed to do) skoldyng and brawlyng, exercisyng and practisyng preuy displeasure and malice, not agayn their enemyes as they were accustomed, but cmong them selfes one against another, caslinge out of memory drownynge their auncient renoune, glory and honoure with desyre of rule and appetite to be reuenged, and so destroyed the common weale, and subuerted the olde monurnentes and actes of their forfathers and predecessors. And because some of them, thinkynge them selfes, not of force and puissauce sufficient inough to bring their purpose to effect, and to reuenge their quarell, they entysed, stirred and procured with giftes, rewardes and promyses, straungers and foreyne nacions to their aide and assistence. The other seyngc them so desirous to haue their helpe, partely moued with their giftes, partely with desyre of rule, spoyles prayes, gathered together a great company and entred into Italy, and there distroyed, spoyled and possessed the better parte of it. And so the Italians, as men out of their wit, where as they thought one to noye & hurte another with hatefull warryng, they destroyed their natyue coutrey, beynge of nature enclosed and munyte with hygh hilles and the mayne sea rounde> aboute, and opened the waye to straungiers to their vttre ignominy and finall destruccion, which thei might haue kept out of all daungier, if they had bene their awne fredes, and loued their awne wealth and commodite. Therefore I mayesaye: O progeny, aswell wicked as vngodly, hath discorde and dissencion pleased the so much that thou wouldest vtterly extinguihhe and confoude the glory and honour of thy natiue countrey ? And in conclusion, thou thyself art come to the depest pyt of wretchednes, because that thou perceauing the ruyne that thou hast caused and procured, thou arte more repentaunte for the begynninge of it, then glad to desist and Icaue it, and so accordynge to thy desert thou hast thy penaunce and guardon. The grand capitayne and beginner of thys mischief was Sforcia, whiche at that tyme ruled at his will the duchy of Millayne vndre duke Ihon Galeas his nephew : but for a truthe this Lewes ruled al, and the duke did nothing. Wherfore Alphons duke of Calabre, and after kyng of Napels, grudgynge that this duke Ihon his sonne in la\ve, should be defrauded of his superiorite and dominio, threatened sore this Lewes Sforcia. Where hefearyng to be put from his authoritee, solicited and by great entreatie procured Charles the French kyng to inuade the reahne of Napels. By reason of whiche procurement, Alphonse duke of Calabre (44) , whiche succeded his father Ferdinand in the kingdome of Napels (which also as you haue heard, was made knight of the garter) was first depryued of his kingdome by thesaiue kynge Charles, and shortely after of his lyfe. But Lewes force had no longe ioye after the deathe of hys enemy, for he was betrayed and taken by the Swytzers whiche warred vnder kynge Lewes the twelfth, then beynge Frenche kynge, and caryed into Fraunce, where he in the Castell of Lothes miserably finished hys lyfe, accordynge to the saiynge of the Gospell, woo be too hym by whom aslaundre begynneth. Thys mischiefe beganne at that tyme when Charles came thether, and contynueth yet, which is the yere of oure Lord. M.D.xliii. for an example to other, y straungers inuited to a prosperous countrey be lothe to departe from the swete sauoure once therof tasted.

In 1493 . Hall's Chronicle Henry VII VII Year . And so Charles (34) , beyng furnished with men, of armes, horsemen, fotemen, nauye, and aide of some Italians, passed through Italy by Rome and without any great laboure wanne the citie of Napels . When he had obteyned this victory: in hys returne beynge assailed with the Venicians at the toune of Fornouoe, he had a great daungerous victory. And so lyke aconquerour, with great triuphe returned into his realme and countrey. After hym Lewes the. xii. beyng kynge, when he founde oportunitee and sawe the gappe open, inuaded the Italians agayne, & recouered again the realm of Napels, whiche Ferdinand I King Naples 1423-1494 (69) Frecleryck the sonne of kyng Alphonse, not longe before had gotten from the French nacion : & after that he subdued and conquered the whole duchy of Millayn . Albeit not long after (fortune turnynge her whele) he lost bothethe kyngdome of Napels, and the fayre citie and duchy of Millayne both together. And so the Frenchmen warrynge vpon the Italians had no better successe in their coquestes, then their parentes and predecessours heretofore haue ben accustomed. For vndoubtedly, as many places as they vexed and sacked with murder and spoylinge, so many or more in conclusion they did enoble and decorate with their blood and slaughter. Which small recompece little profited and lesse releued, such as before were robbed and spoyled of all their goodes, substaunce and ryches. After this the Spanyades arryued iu Italy, and their puttynge too flighte the Frenchemen, obteyned the possession of the realmes of Napels and Scicile, the which they possesse and enioye at this houre. And at length a certayne nacion of Germany, called the Swytsers, called to be partakers of the spoyle of Italy, wane certayn tounes there, whiche they possesse and enioye at this present tyme.

In 1493 . Hall's Chronicle Henry VII VII Year . When kynge Henry (35) was returned into England, he first of all thinges elected into the societe of saynct George, vulgarely called the Order of the Garter , Alphose duke of Calabres (44) sonne, accordyng to his deire whiche Alphonse was sonne and heyre to Ferdinand kyng of Naples (69) ,& after kyng of the same realme, til he was ouercome by kyng Charles.And after, the kyng sent Christopher Vrsewike (45) , Ambassadour with y gartier, coller, mantell, and other habiliamentes apperteyninge to the companyons of the sayde noble ordre. Which Ambassadoure arryuing at Napels , deliuered to the duke the whole habile, with all the ceremonies and devre circumstaunces therunto belonging. Whiche duke very reuerently receaued it, and with more reuerence reuested him selfe w thesame in a solempne presence, thinkyng .that by this apparell and inuestittire, he was made a freride and compaygnion in ordre with j king of England, whose frendship obteyned, he feared nothing the assautes or inuasions of hys enemies. And this was the cause that he desyred so muche to be compaygnion of that noble order, fermely beleuyng that y kyng of England souereygne of that ordre, should be aider and mainteyner of hym agaynst the Frenche kyng, whome he knew woulde passe the moutaynes and make warre on hym. But this custome of assistece in ordres was, eyther neuer begonne, or before clerely abholished: For in our tyme there haue bene many noble men of Italy, compaignios as well of the golden Flese in Burgoyne, as of the ordre of sainct Mighel in Fraunce, that haue bene banyshed and profligate from their naturall countrey, and yet haue not bene aided by the souereigne nor copanyons of thesame order. For surely the statutes and ordinaunces of all thesayde orders dothe not oblige and bynde them to that case, but in certayne poyntes. After this the duke dimissed the Ambassadour, rewardyng hym moost pryncely.
