 Joan of Arc, Letter to the Duke of Burgundy (July 17, 1429)
This is a letter sent to Duke Philip of Burgundy on July 17, 1429, while Joan was in Rheims for the coronation of Charles VII, reminding the duke of a previous letter asking him to attend the coronation.
Burgundy was one of the six secular Peers of the kingdom expected to attend such a function, along with a matching set of six ecclesiastic Peers; but the duke was allied with the English at the time and therefore supported Henry VI as king of France.
The Duke of Burgundy was considered by tradition to be one of the six secular Peers who should attend the coronation of a French King.

 Burgundy
Peaceful, rural Burgundy is one of the most prosperous regions in modern France, but for centuries its powerful dukes remained independent of the French crown.
There's evidence everywhere of this former wealth and power, both secular and religious: in the dukes' capital of Dijon, in the great abbeys of Vézelay and Fontenay, in the ruins of the monastery of Cluny (whose abbots' influence was second only to the pope's), and in the châteaux of Tanlay and Ancy.
Because of its monastic foundations, Burgundy became – along with Poitou and Provence – one of the great church-building areas in the Middle Ages.
