This chapter asks how war exercised and developed the mutual obligations of princes and peoples. Individuals' obligations to contribute to the defence of the realm through military service and taxation were more closely defined and enforced. Rulers trumpeted their own efforts to defend their subjects, and the martial aspects of the princely image were stressed in many media, especially in the Netherlands under Charles V. Mutiny and desertion were punished with increasing strictness and so was wartime treason, a more prominent issue in the Netherlands than in England.

Keywords:   Charles V, media, mutiny, taxation, treason
