Picquigny, treaty of

Picquigny, treaty of, 1475. Edward IV's great campaign in northern France in 1475 was something of a non-event. Greatly dissatisfied with the help he had received from his Burgundian allies, the king was very willing to make terms at Picquigny near Amiens, on 29 August. There was to be a seven-year truce; free commercial exchange; provision for arbitration of disputes; a marriage between the dauphin and Elizabeth of York; and a regular payment by Louis XI of France to Edward. In England the payments were seen as tribute, in France as a bribe or retainer. The rapprochement did not last long and the marriage never took place.

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.
