In the spring of 1513, a messenger from Lombardy reported that under the
Emperor's protection, Maximilian Sforza, II Moro's eldest son, had accepted the
lordship of Milan, now at long last freed from the French. To my annoyance,
... the Chancellor Morone had betrayed his master and sold him to the French just
as he had betrayed and sold II Moro fifteen years earlier. Later on in France I
heard another version of that rumor. It would seem that Maximilian Sforza who
Francesco is yet another Sforza, the younger brother of Bona's ex-bridegroom.
There's ... of accusing him of treachery although he was responsible for the
downfall of II Moro as well as of Maximilian Sforza, when he turned against them.
