Praguerie

Praguerie (prägərēˈ) [key], 1440, revolt against King Charles VII of France, so called in allusion to the Hussite uprising in Prague. It was led by several great feudal lords, including the comte de Dunois, who resented the diminution of their influence over the royal government. They were joined by the dauphin (later Louis XI) and were supported by Philip the Good of Burgundy. The revolt was quickly suppressed, and the rebels were treated leniently by the king.
