During the Hundred Years War, both France and England relied on propaganda to ensure public support for the conflict. Some of the greatest French writers of the late medieval period who contributed to this programme were Alain Chartier, Jean Gerson, and Christine de Pizan. This chapter argues that the most important French polemical treatises were used by royal officials not as direct propaganda to win public support for the war but in the area of diplomacy. These treatises provided an invaluable resource for the Valois monarchy during diplomatic negotiations and public assemblies within France.

Keywords:   France, war, England, diplomacy, polemical treatises, propaganda, Valois monarchy, Alain Chartier, Jean Gerson, Christine de Pizan
