Philipthe Good

Philip the Good (1396-1467), Duke of Burgundy, was the grandson of Philip the Bold and son of John the Fearless, whom he succeeded after his assassination in 1419. He allied himself with Henry V. of England, was one of the parties to the Treaty of Troyes (1420), and contributed in no small degree to the success of the English arms in France during the ensuing years. In 1435, however, he became reconciled with Charles VII., an event which was soon followed by the expulsion of the English from France.
