Shortly after the Treaty of Madrid in 1526, Francesco II Sforza again rules the Duchy of Milan. For too long, Milan has been used as a bargaining chip by the surrounding greater powers. Rebuild Milan’s military and economy, form new alliances (or retain old ones), and re-establish Milan as a self-sufficient and powerful city-state of Italy.
