Siege of Dijon
After the French had lost the Battle of Novara, several contingents of Swiss mercenaries did follow the French withdrawal to Dijon. After a few days of siege, the city had to surrender. In the peace-treaty all the demands of the Swiss were met: the renunciation of France on Milan, Cremona and Asti as well as a war indemnity of 400,000 crowns.
