      Une terre de passage Mille ans après les Burgondes, la Bourgogne gouvernée par des princes a bien failli être de nouveau un puissant royaume. Si le nez de Louis XI eût été plus court… Il convient donc de faire la claire distinction entre l’histoire de la Bourgogne et l’histoire de France, en particulier avant la fin du 15 e s.

      Louis XI (3 July 1423 – 30 August 1483), called the Prudent was the King of France from 1461 to 1483. He was the son of Charles VII of France and Mary of Anjou, a member of the House of Valois. During his 22-year reign, Louis successfully expanded royal power at the expense of the dukes. Shrewd and often vicious, he spun webs of plot and conspiracy which earned him the nicknames the Cunning and The Universal Spider.
