The publication presents a list of letters from the collection of Lamoignon reflecting events of the Schmalkaldic War in the Holy Roman Empire in 1546–1547. One of them, written by Sébastien de L’Aubespine to the king of France Francis I in January 1547, represents a valuable testimony on the military-political events around the siege of Leipzig, and reflects the point of view of French diplomacy on the situation in Germany during the Reformation and religious schism. The full text of the autograph is published with a translation into Russian and brief comments.
Key Words: Schmalkaldic War, Lamoignon collection, French Renaissance diplomacy, Duke Moritz of Saxony, Elector Johann Friedrich of Saxony
