War and peace in Champagne at the end of the Middle Ages. Around the Treaty of Troyes

  • € 30

On May 21, 1420, a treaty was signed in Troyes which established the dual monarchy of France and England. Central event of the second phase of the Hundred Years' War, the Treaty of Troyes marks both the consecration of Lancastrian military supremacy following the debacle of Agincourt and the climax of the civil war which tears apart the supporters of the Duke of Burgundy and the Dauphin clan after the assassination of John the Fearless at the Montereau Bridge (1419).

By recognizing Henry V as the legitimate heir of the Kingdom of the Lilies to the detriment of the King of Bourges, the Treaty of Troyes contributed to uniting the oppositions which would lead, nine years later, to the providential intervention of Joan of Arc and to the advances policies of Charles VII.

The 6th centenary of the Treaty of Troyes and the exhibition organized by the Departmental Council of Aube at the Hôtel-Dieu-le-Comte in 2020 were an opportunity for the scientific community to focus on this decade 1419- 1429 crystallized around this largely unknown episode in the history of France and yet so fundamental. Through around thirty unpublished articles, this book offers a renewed vision of this pivotal period of the Franco-English War, dealing with both its political and military aspects, its effects on continental trade and its consequences on populations.
