Troyes, Treaty of

Troyes, Treaty of, 1420, agreement between Henry V of England, Charles VI of France, and Philip the Good of Burgundy. Its purpose, ultimately unsuccessful, was to settle the issues of the Hundred Years War. Henry was to marry Charles's daughter Catherine and was recognized as "heir of France." Charles was permitted to retain the royal title until his death. The dauphin (later Charles VII) was disinherited by the treaty, which he subsequently repudiated.
