Hall's Chronicle 1492. In this very season Charles the French King (age 22), received lady Anne (age 15) as his pupil into his hands, and with great solemnity her espoused, having with her for her dower the whole country of Brittany. And so by this means the Britons became subject to the French King. [her father] Maximilian (age 33), being certified of this, fell into a great rage and agony, for it he was not content with the forsaking and refusing of his daughter lady Margaret (age 12), but also had taken and ravished away from him his assured wife lady Anne duchess of Brittany (age 15). And calling upon God for vengeance and punishment for such an heinous and execrable fact, cried out and railed on him, wishing him a thousand deaths. Yet after that he was pacified, and came to himself again, and had gathered his wits together, he thought it was most expedient to vindicate and revenge his honour and dignity so manifestly touched, with the dint of sword. And being in this mind, sent certain Ambassadors to King Henry (age 35) with his letters, desiring him with all diligence to prepare an army, and he himself would do likewise, to invade the French Kings realms with fire, sword and blood.
