After Mary's death, Maximilian took over the reign of the Netherlands and entered another conflict with France. The City of Ghent placed itself under the protection of France and also in Bruges, the citizens stood against Maximilian because he imposed high taxes. The rebellion even led to his imprisonment through citizens.
The king spent three months in imprisonment what infuriated even Pope Innocent VIII who turned against the Netherlanders. Father Frederick III summoned his monarchs and together they marched up north. This thread prompted the citizens to release Maximilian.
