Treaty of Lyon (1601)

The Treaty of Lyon was signed on January 17, 1601 between France and Savoy, to bring an end to the Franco-Savoyard War of 1600–1601. Based on the terms of the treaty, Henry IV of France relinquished Saluzzo to Savoy,[1] while Savoy kept Pont de Gresin, Valserine, and was required to pay France 150,000 livres.[2] In return, Henry acquired Bugey, Valromey, Gex, and Bresse.[1]
