History of War - - BURGUNDY’S WARS -

Under their new duke – Philip the Good – the Bur­gun­di­ans of­fi­cially de­fect to the English. They first swear al­le­giance to Henry V at Troyes and then his in­fant suc­ces­sor Henry VI at Amiens. Their sup­port ce­ments a dual monar­chy of Eng­land and France with Bur­gundy pro­vid­ing mil­i­tary sup­port against the Dauphin’s Ar­magnac sup­port­ers.

Philip the Good makes peace with the now crowned Charles VII at the Treaty of Ar­ras, which ends the Ar­mag­nacbur­gun­dian Civil War. In a volte-face, he also de­clares war on Eng­land and com­mands a failed siege against English­held Calais. Bur­gun­dian at­ten­tion then grad­u­ally moves away from French af­fairs.


Bur­gun­dian sup­port for the Treaty of Troyes en­ables Henry V to be­come the heir to the French throne and forces Charles VI to dis­in­herit his own son
