The Treaty of Troyes created a double monarchy and raised a number of issues regarding its implementation even before Henry V died in office as regent of France. Queen Isabeau, Philip the Good, and Henry V formulated policies with the intent of making Charles ‘disappear from circulation’. To their dismay, however, the dauphin continued to enjoy much support. Charles VII's final victory could be attributed in part to the death of Henry V. This chapter examines public opinion towards the actions of the dukes of Burgundy and their party in texts written about 1420, focusing on a number of anonymous pamphlets and certain works of Alan Chartier, Jean Gerson, Jean de Terrevermeille, and Robert Blondel. It explores the issues of legitimate succession, treachery, and rebellion, showing that they may have been responsible for the victory ultimately achieved by the dauphin's supporters.
