On May 28, 1503, the Treaty of Everlasting Peace was signed. It was a three-part pact between England (Henry VII), Scotland (James IV), and the Pope (Alexander VI). It was sealed with a marriage between James IV of Scotland and Margaret Tudor, daughter of Henry VII. Henry, the first Tudor king, thought it would bring him some much needed stability. James also needed a breather from the constant friction between the two countries. The terms of the peace were that whoever broke it would be excommunicated.Today's question: Nothing is forever and neither was this Treaty. How long did it last?
