He was imprisoned after a revolt in 1488 but was restored to power and commanded the troops at Asti during Charles VIII’s invasion of Italy in 1494-95. After Charles’s death, he became king of France. His reign was marked with great domestic popularity, and he worked to protect his subjects against oppression.
