Encircled by the territories of Charles V, Francis persevered in the long and ruinous military conflict between France and the Holy Roman Empire known as the [[Italian Wars]]. In his struggle against Imperial hegemony he unsuccessfully sought the support of [[Henry VIII of England]] at the [[Field of the Cloth of Gold]]. As an alternative, he formed a [[Franco-Ottoman alliance]] with [[Suleiman the Magnificent]], a controversial move for a Christian king at the time.

Francis was born at the Château de Cognac in the town of [[Cognac, France|Cognac]], which at that time lay in the province of [[Saintonge]], a part of the [[Duchy of Aquitaine]]. The town lies today in the [[Departments of France|French department]] of [[Charente]].

Francis was the only son of [[Charles, Count of Angoulême]], and [[Louise of Savoy]] and a great-great-grandson of King [[Charles V of France|Charles V]]. His family was not expected to inherit the throne, as his third cousin King [[Charles VIII of France|Charles VIII]] was still young at the time of his birth, as was his father's cousin the [[Louis XII of France|Duke of Orléans]], later King Louis XII. However, Charles VIII died childless in 1498 to be succeeded by Louis XII, who had no male heir. The [[Salic Law]] prevailed in France, thus females were ineligible to inherit the throne. Therefore, the four-year-old Francis (who was already [[Count of Angoulême]] after the death of his own father two years prior) became the [[heir presumptive]] to the throne of France in 1498 and was vested with the title of [[Duke of Valois]].

Louis XII did have daughters, if not sons, and he decided to betroth his daughter [[Claude of France]] to Francis in 1498. Claude was heiress to the [[Brittany|Duchy of Brittany]] through her mother, [[Anne of Brittany]]. The marriage took place on 18 May 1514. Louis died shortly afterwards and Francis inherited the throne. He was [[coronation of the French monarch|crowned King of France]] in the [[Cathedral of Reims]] on 25 January 1515, with Claude as his [[Queen consort of France|queen consort]].
