Description
  • English: Ludovico il Moro is handed over by his Swiss mercenaries (left) to the French forces (on the right) in the standoff at Novara in 1500. The French army also had a strong contingent of Swiss mercenaries. The Swiss soldiers on both sides refused to fight each other, and finally the French king agreed to let Lodovico's Swiss troops retreat peacefully. However, the agreement did not cover Ludovico himself. His Swiss mercenaries disguised him as one of their own and tried to smuggle him away with them, but he was recognized and had to be turned over. The Swiss later tried one of their own for having betrayed Ludovico for money. Ludovico died 1508 in French custody.
  • Deutsch: Der Mailänder Herzog Ludovico Sforza, genannt «il moro», wird nach der Belagerung von Novara von seinen Schweizer Söldnern (linke Seite) den französischen Truppen übergeben. Die Stadt Novara war zuvor von franz. Truppen eingeschlossen worden. Da das französische und das mailändische Heer zu grossen Teilen aus Schweizer Söldnern bestand und diese einen Bruderkampf verhindern wollten, gestand der franz. König den Schweizern im mailändischen Heer freien Abzug zu. Die Söldner versuchten den Herzog in Verkleidung herauszuschmuggeln, was aber misslang, da er wegen seiner dunklen Hautfarbe von einem Schweizer Söldner im franz. Heer erkannt wurde. Diese Vorgänge sind in der älteren Schweizer Geschichte als «Verrat von Novara» bekannt. Ludovico starb 1508 in franz. Gefangenschaft. Siehe auch: Ennetbirgische Feldzüge
