  • Notes 
    • King of France (1364-1380).
      Charles, the eldest son of John II the Good and Bonne of Luxembourg, was faced, at the age of eighteen, with his father's imprisonment in England (1356-­1360) and found himself faced with the worst possible difficulties while acting as Regent. The States General were attempting to gain control of the monarchy, Etienne Marcel had fomented rebellion in Paris, there were threats from the King of Navarre, Charles the Bad, who coveted the crown and there was a peasants' revolt in the Beauvais area (the "Jacquerie" revolt). Having succeeded in overco­ming domestic problems in 1358, Charles then had to withstand a new invasion by the English, to which he put an end by signing the Treaty of Calais in 1360. This laid down the conditions under which his father would be released. John the Good's return to London and subsequent death in 1364 took Charles V to the thro­ne of France. With the assistance of a great warlord, Du Guesclin, he defeated Charles the Bad in Cocherel (1364), put an end to the war of succession in Brittany through the Treaty of Guerande (1365) and partly rid his kingdom of the groups of armed bandits who were pillaging it (1366). In 1369, war against the English broke out again after the confiscation of Guyenne by King Charles V. It was a war waged without any major battles, a conflict designed to wear down the other side, and one by one the King of France succeeded in reconquering each of the English­held territories (Rouergue, Quercy and Perigord in ] 369, Limousin and Poitou in 1372, Aunis and Saintonge in 1373). By 1375, the only English possessions remai­ning in France were Guyenne and Calais. The accession of a new king to the thro­ne of England in 1377, in the person of Richard II, led to a further outbreak of hos­tilities in 1379-1380. Charles V's domestic policy aimed at re-establishing royal authority which had suffered badly during his father's reign. In particular, he reor­ganised the army, forming it into "companies" (ordinances of 1373-1374), and the financial system, obtaining the funding he required for war by means of extraor­dinary taxes which, later, became permanent. Finally, he was a well-educated, lite­rate king who enjoyed the company of educated men and a king-builder who com­missioned work on the Louvre, Bastille, Hotel Saint-Pol and the new town walls in Paris. When he died in 1380, his son, Charles VI, succeeded him.
