1412.

This agreement between Henry IV, king of England, and the duke of Orléans arose out of the French civil war. In return for Henry's aid against the Burgundians, Orléans accepted English claims to sovereignty over the duchy of Aquitaine. Henry dispatched an army in July 1412, but as the Orléanists had reached a temporary peace with Burgundy, the treaty was never fulfilled.
