Medina del Campo, treaty of

Medina del Campo, treaty of, 1489. In 1489 Henry VII was attempting to prop up Brittany against French encroachment and also pursuing a marriage between his heir Arthur and the infant Catherine, daughter of Ferdinand of Aragon and Spain. In March 1489 the treaty of Medina del Campo confirmed the marriage arrangements and concluded an alliance against France. Though the treaty was not formally ratified, it served as the foundation of Henry's foreign policy. But in 1491 the duchess of Brittany married Charles VIII of France and the realms were united. The marriage of Catherine and Arthur was postponed until 1501 and within five months Arthur had died.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
