 Maximilian I
This treaty provided that Maximilian's daughter Margaret of Austria should marry Charles, the dauphin of France, and have for her dowry Artois and Franche-Comté, two of the provinces in dispute, while the claim of Louis on the Duchy of Burgundy was tacitly admitted.
The negotiations with France ended in the treaty of Blois, signed in September 1504, when Maximilian's grandson Charles was betrothed to Claude, daughter of Louis XII, and Louis, invested with the Duchy of Milan, agreed to aid the king of the Romans to secure the imperial crown.
The treaty of Blois had contained a secret article providing for an attack on Venice, and this ripened into the league of Cambray, which was joined by the emperor in December 1509.

 The War In Brittany
On the death of the duke, Charles had sent her an embassy declaring his intention to observe the treaty signed in August; but as her feudal superior he claimed her wardship, and told her she must forbear calling herself duchess till the question of her right to the duchy had been settled by competent judges.
This loan of men, however, was not to be made without very sufficient security for their expenses; for it was expressly stipulated that a number of them, not to exceed 500, were at once to be put in possession of certain towns and castles, which were to be delivered to Henry in pawn.
By a gentle answer he contrived to mitigate their resentment, and after swearing to pardon all offences, he was allowed to depart at liberty, much to the discontent of the men of Ghent, who would have delivered him prisoner into the hands of the French.

The golden age of Burgundy began (1364) when John II of France bestowed the fief on his son, Philip the Bold, thus founding the line of Valois-Bourgogne.
Philip and his successors, John the Fearless, Philip the Good, and Charles the Bold, acquired—by conquest, treaty, and marriage—vast territories, including most of the present Netherlands and Belgium, the then extensive duchy of Luxembourg, Picardy, Artois, Lorraine, S Baden, Alsace, the Franche-Comté, Nivernais, and Charolais.
England, at first supported by Burgundy in the Hundred Years War, suffered a crucial setback when Philip the Good withdrew that support in the Treaty of Arras (1435).

 The Sable Rose - History
It is worth noting that under the terms of the treaty, Charles VII was to punish the murderers of John the Fearless, but made only a token effort.
However in 1482, after Mary's untimely death, Maximilian divided the Burgundian territories with Louis as part of a treaty that arranged for his infant daughter Margaret to marry the dauphin (later Charles VIII), while his infant son (later King Philip I of Castile) was to hold Flanders on behalf of France.
It was this, and some related treaties, that eventually led to the conflicts between Spain and Holland, added to the pressures that resulted in the Thirty Years’ war, and inspired most of the Low Countries to strive for complete independence from the Empire.

But Yann IV saw that English power was waning and so he brought peace to Brittany by signing the second treaty of Guérande in 1389 by which he broke Brittany’s alliance with England.
Though the terms of this treaty forced the Breton duke to render formal homage to the infant French King Charles VI, Brittany was left with enough freedom to pursue its own foreign policy, which in effect meant that it could still maintain its independence by balancing the English off against the French.
Long before France made up with its breakaway duchy of Burgundy at the treaty of Arras in 1435, Yann saw that the old balance of power politics weren’t going to work much longer for Brittany.
