In 1655 England sent fleets against both Tunis and Algiers, securing a renewal of her treaty with Algiers. In 1658 threats of force against Tripoli and Tunis led to treaties with those two powers as well. England officially became a Mediterranean power as the result of a marriage pact that Portugal arranged with the exiled Charles Stuart: if he were restored as King of England and married Catherine of Braganza, Portugal would give him a large dowry and the port of Tangiers. The agreement came to pass with the restoration of Charles Stuart as Charles II.

In his role as king of Spain Charles was also fighting a series of wars with France over the control of Italy. The French king Francis I, hemmed in by the lands of Charles’s inheritance, had no more reason than the German princes to co-operate with the Habsburgs, even in the interests of Christian unity. In 1525 an army of Charles V captured Francis I at Pavia. Humiliated but hardly cowed, the king of France allied with the Ottoman Turks and encouraged Ottoman attacks on eastern Europe, as well as on Habsburg lands in the west.
