Historical background


BURGUNDY - DUCHY OF BURGUNDY - JOHN THE FEARLESS

(1404-1419)

Jean sans Peur (1371-1419), son of Philippe le Hardi and Marguerite de Flandre, succeeded his father in Burgundy in 1404, but only in 1405 in Flanders after the death of his mother. He married Margaret of Bavaria (1363-1423). He played a very important role at court and fell out with his cousin Louis d'Orléans, whom he allowed to be assassinated in 1407. The following twelve years were extremely complex. The Duke of Burgundy allied himself in turn with Queen Isabeau, then with the King of England, Henry V, fought the Armagnac faction and seized Paris twice in 1413 and 1418. Wanting to reconcile with the Dauphin Charles, he is assassinated at the interview of Montereau (1419).
