So how did this treaty affect the European countries? Well, it left them no legal rights to any lands or treasure in the New World, the result of which lead them to resort to illegal methods, that is, piracy.
On this matter, that is Treaty of Tordesillas, the king of France is thought to have said...
"The sun shines on me just the same as on the other, and I should like to see the clause in Adam's will that
cuts me out of my share in the New World!"
There was no way that the Francis was not getting his share of the booty and so the piracy began. Think of the image of Captain Jack Sparrow and the Black Pearl and you can easily visualise Francis's galleons capturing two Spanish treasure ships as they were on the way to Spain, carrying Aztec treasure.
