The Treaty of Tordesillas was signed in Burgos in 1524. The treaty placed Monaco under the protection of Spain. As a consequence Monaco became subservient to Spain and its lord a vassal to the Spanish King. Thus the Lord of Monaco was required to give homage. Lucien I the Lord of Monaco, requested this requirement be removed from the treaty. The final proclamation of the treaty in November 1524 made no reference to the Lord of Monaco being subservient to the King of Spain.
