Étaples, treaty of

Étaples, treaty of, 1492. In October 1492 Henry VII led an expedition to France in support of the Bretons and to induce Charles VIII of France to repudiate Perkin Warbeck. He commenced a siege of Boulogne but the French offered terms which he accepted on 3 November. France was to pay substantial financial indemnities and agreed not to assist Warbeck: trade was to be encouraged by moderate customs duties and action against pirates. Henry's campaign of one month proved highly profitable and he was accused of waging war for gain, but the treaty was confirmed by the English Parliament in 1495 and renewed in 1498.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
