treaty of Troyes

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference


By this Anglo‐French treaty, ratified on 21 May, Henry V became heir and regent to the mad Charles VI of France. After the death of Charles, France and England were to be under one ruler. The dauphin (later Charles VII) was thus disinherited. In fact Henry died first: it was his baby son Henry VI who became king of the ‘double monarchy’.
