    Notes 
    • I don't have info on the "nursery", but according to Andre Maurois's
      "A History of France", (1968 U.S. edition, page 132) Henry II
      complained that he was badly treated by the Spanish. Henry and his
      brother were held hostage as a result of a treaty his father, Francis
      I, negotiated while imprisoned in Spain. In exchange for his freedom
      Francis agreed to allow the Emporer the Duchy of Burgundy. Henry and
      his brother were held as hostages to guarantee the agreement. But
      after Francis I's release, the Burgundians refused to become part of
      the Empire. So Henry's grandmother, Louise of Savoy, and the
      Emporer's sister, Archduchess Margaret negotiated in 1529 "The Ladies
      Peace" (The Peace of Cambrai) which set the ransom for the freedom of
      the two princes at two million gold ecus, which the French paid.
      There was obviously bad blood between the Valois and Habsburgs. One
      clause in the Cambrai treaty required Francis I to marry the Emporer's
      sister, Eleanor, which the King did in 1530. Under the circumstance
      this proved to be an unhappy marriage.
      Maurois writes that as king, Henry II of France, due to the bad
      treatment he received during his childhood captivity, hated the
      Spanish and especially Charles V.
