Treaty of Frankfurt (1539)

Treaty of Frankfurt (1539)

The Treaty of Frankfurt (also spelled Treaty of Frankfort), [Smith, "The Age of the Reformation", p. 122.] also known as the Truce of Frankfurt, [Armstrong, p. 325.] was a formal agreement of peace between Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor and Protestants on April 19, 1539. The parties met at Frankfurt-on-the-Main,Hagenbach, p. 235.] and the Lutherans were represented by Philip Melancthon. [Smith, "The Life and Letters of Martin Luther", p. 314.] The treaty stated that the emperor would not take any violent actions against the Protestants, who had formed an alliance known as the Schmalkaldic League, for fifteen months starting May 1; during this time both parties could try and resolve the differences in their confessions. As a result of this peace, the Schmalkaldic League lost the protection of France.
