It is generally accepted that the 'Parliament of the Ladies' at Nikli (Peloponnesos) in 1261 was convoked in order to ratify the agreement made in Constantinople between William II of Villehardouin, prince of Achaia, and the Byzantine emperor, Michael VIII Palaiologos. This article is a re-examination of the contents, value and implications of this 'parliament'. It proves that the agreement between Prince and Emperor was lawful and not conditional to a ratification and that article 19 of the 'Assises de Romanie' was most probably a result of the treaty of Constantinople and consequently of the facts surrounding the 'parliament of the Ladies'.
