Arras, Treaty of

Treaty of Arras:1 Treaty of 1435, between King Charles VII of France and Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy. Through it, France and Burgundy became reconciled. Philip deserted his English allies and recognized Charles as king of France. In return, Philip received the Somme towns and was exempted from homage to the crown. Charles also agreed to punish the murderers of Philip's father, Duke John of Burgundy. 2 Treaty of 1482, between King Louis XI of France and the local governments of the Netherlands, following the death of Mary of Burgundy. In 1483 Mary's widower, Archduke Maximilian of Austria (later Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I), reluctantly accepted the treaty. The acquisition of Burgundy by France was recognized. Maximilian's infant daughter, Margaret of Austria, was to marry the dauphin (later King Charles VIII), bringing Artois and Franche-Comté as dowry. Maximilian's infant son (later King Philip I of Castile) was to do homage for Flanders to France. When Charles VIII married Anne of Brittany, Maximilian forced him to restore Margaret's dowry by the Treaty of Senlis (1493).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Arras, Congress of

Arras, Congress of, 1435. Marked an attempt by the papacy and the Council of Basle to bring about peace between England and France. It was presided over by two cardinals and attended by embassies representing Henry VI (who claimed to be king of France by the terms of the treaty of Troyes), Charles VII of France, and Philip, duke of Burgundy, still technically in alliance with the English but already moving towards a rapprochement with Charles. It came to naught because the English refused to abandon Henry VI's rights to the French throne. They withdrew their delegation on 6 September, leaving the way clear for a Franco-Burgundian alliance, the treaty of Arras, finalized on 21 September.
