In 1530 Duke Charles launched a fresh attack on Geneva, whereupon both Fribourg and Bern sent troops, which alarmed the other cantons. Peace negotiations led to Treaty of St-Julien in October and Deed of Arbitration at Payerne (December). Though brokered by all the cantons (except Glarus) in reality these treaties achieved little, though the vidomat was restored to Savoy, and Geneva’s Burgrecht acknowledged. Yet any failure by Savoy to abide by their terms would entail the Vaud being surrendered to Bern and Fribourg. For its part, Geneva insisted on its status as an imperial city, not beholden to Savoy. Savoy was ordered to pay considerable reparations, on which it repeatedly defaulted. Bern was angry at Geneva for failing to reimburse its war costs.
