Truce of Nice
Truce of Nice, Artist: Taddeo Zuccari, 1538, Courtesy Sala del Consiglio. Palazzo Ducale—Pope Paul III stands between Francis I and Charles V. Francis and Charles hated each other so much, they refused to sit in the same room during negotiations to end the 1536-1538 Italian War. Pope Paul III, the mediator, traveled room-to-room delivering personal messages to each. Because of the war that preceded this truce, Vesalius fled Paris and returned to Louvain.
