  • July 20 : An army of the governor Khair ad-Din Barbarossa is destroyed, as a result of which an uprising of around 12,000 Christian prisoners breaks out in the city. Khair ad-Din Barbarossa is forced to give up the city and move to Bône . Charles V then conquered Tunis and released the city for a three-day pillage that cost around 30,000 lives.
The emperor reinstates the king of Tunis in his country. (contemporary etching by Frans Hogenberg )
  • Former Tunisian king Muley Hasan is re-enthroned as a vassal of Charles V.
  • After Karl failed to pursue Khair ad-Din, instead of retreating into the Levant as the Spaniards suspected, he set sail with fifteen galleons in the direction of the Balearic Islands . While Andrea Doria searches the North African coast for him, he attacks the port city of Maó in the north of the island of Menorca with his fleet , takes six thousand soldiers prisoner and acquired numerous guns.
Charles V brings Pope Paul III. the news of the victorious capture of Tunis
