Peace negotiations left Bern and Fribourg in control of the Vaud, barring three strongholds, while Geneva was to pay a hefty ransom for ‘protection’. Savoy doubted whether Geneva could afford the ransom and suggested that France might administer the Vaud. Arguments over the distribution of Burgundian booty and the failure of Geneva to pay up led to a band of Swiss youths from the Inner cantons marching on Geneva in revenge under a banner showing a wild boar (Saubannerzug). Geneva was obliged to sign a Burgrecht with Bern and Fribourg for protection. In the end, the Vaud was restored to Savoy for 50,000 fl, Bern and Fribourg retaining three enclaves (Morat, Grandson, and Orbe-Echallens) which they ruled as common lords, allegedly presaging Bern’s conquest of the Vaud in 1536.

Keywords:   control of Vaud disputed, Geneva’s ransom, Geneva’s Burgrecht with Bern and Fribourg, restoration of Vaud to Savoy, Bern and Fribourg’s three common lordships in the Vaud, Morat, Grandson, Orbe-Echallens
