The 1539 Register of the City Council of Geneva addresses all aspects of every day life : economic, religious, judicial, political and institutional. However, in this year 1539, there are three major difficulties facing the authorities which threaten Geneva’s supremacy and independence: the Montchenu case, who has asked several eminent members of the city to place themselves under the protection of the king of France; the annexation of Thiez by Francis Ist at the request of the canons of Geneva then living in Annecy; and the attempt by Bern to impose a new disadvantageous treaty on Geneva. Geneva’s rejection leads to a new partisan crisis within the city, between the “Articulants”, who defend the negotiators of the treaty, and the supporters of Calvin. The difficulties created by the treaty between the two cities continue until 1544, with the treaty known as the “second Départ de Bâle”. The acute tension, reinforced by ongoing troop movements in the area and the degradation of relations with the Bernese bailiffs, drive the Genovese authorities to start asking the city of Basel for bigger and bigger loans to fortify the city.
