1526, The kingdom of the Franks




The Treaty of Madrid and the meeting of the two sovereigns,
where Holy Roman emperor offered his hand to Francis.      
   

On January 14, 1526 peace is declared between Francis I of France
                                            [and Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, the Treaty of Madrid.

This treaty virtually stopped the timeless conflict between France and German
                          [for a while, because soon they changed their minds about what they did.

Ιn May Francis repudiates the Treaty of Madrid and forms the League of Cognac
                      [against Charles, including Pope Clement VII, Milan, Venice, and Florence.

The history of continuous warfare between the two
                  [pointed to a new war was very encouraging (positive feedback, commorance).

Since the fifth century, both of the warriors were the powerful kingdom of the Franks,
                                      [and after their separation, the wars were continuous and bloodied.
as if a witch had cursed them to fight constantly with each other,
                       [and with the current day great wars, it was confirmed ( a version unstudied)

1525, They are considered the first draft of human rights and civil liberties


The title page of the Twelve Articles.

On the sixteenth of February of that year about 25 villages
                            [adjacent to the city of Memmingen, Germany rebelled,
rigged with their weapons and fought for their freedom
                                                 [with great valor, unmatched, unparalleled.


The Twelve Articles were part of the peasants' demands
            [of the Swabian League during this German Peasants' War of 1525.


They are considered the first draft of human rights and civil liberties
                 [in Europe after the Roman Empire (European Union's archive).


The notorious human rights that nowadays,
                                                             [in the opinion of some modern analysts
are euphemistically used by the governments of many states and in practice
                        [do not exist, they are whimsical fantasy of whimsical panelists…

          The Twelve Articles of the Swabian Peasantry 1525 (German Peasants' War)

The Twelve Articles were part of the peasants' demands of the Swabian League during the German Peasants' War of 1525. They are considered the first draft of human rights and civil liberties in continental Europe after the Roman Empire. The gatherings in the process of drafting them are considered to be the first constituent assembly on German soil.
On 6 March 1525 about 50 representatives of the Upper Swabian Peasants Groups (of the Baltringer Mob, the Allgäuer Mob, and the Lake Constance Mob), met in Memmingen to deliberate upon their common stance against the Swabian League. One day later and after difficult negotiations, they proclaimed the Christian Association, an Upper Swabian Peasants' Confederation. The peasants met again on 15 and 20 March 1525 in Memmingen and, after some additional deliberation, adopted the Twelve Articles and the Federal Order (Bundesordnung).

The Articles and the Order are only examples among many similar programmes developed during the German Peasants' War that were published in print. The Twelve Articles in particular were printed over 25,000 times within the next two months, a tremendous print run for the 16th century. Copies quickly spread throughout Germany. Since the two texts were not developed any further in the course of the German Peasants' War, some sources speak of the meeting in Memmingen as a constitutional peasant assembly.
