  Charles the Bold - LoveToKnow 1911
CHARLES, called THE Bold (1433-1477), duke of Burgundy, son of Philip the Good of Burgundy and Isabella of Portugal, was born at Dijon on the 10th of November 1433.
Charles suffered a first rebuff in endeavouring to protect his kinsman, the archbishop of Cologne, against his rebel subjects.
In reality, he was a prince of wide knowledge and culture, knowing several languages and austere in morals; and although he cannot be acquitted of occasional harshness, he had the secret of winning the hearts of his subjects, who never refused him their support in times of difficulty.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Flanders
Flanders then received a French governor, but the tyranny of the French soon brought about an insurrection, in the course of which some 3000 French were slaughtered in Bruges, and at the call of the two patriots, de Coninck and Breydel, the whole country rose in arms.
Philip sent into Flanders a powerful army, which met with a crushing defeat at Courtrai (1302); after another battle, which remained undecided, the King of France resorted to diplomacy, but in vain, and peace was restored only in 1320, after Pope John XXII had induced the Flemings to accept it.
Philip was succeeded by Charles the Bold (1467-1477), the marriage of whose daughter to Maximilian, Archduke of Austria, brought Flanders with the rest of the Low Countries under the rule of the House of Hapsburg in 1477.

Generally well- protected dignitaries were in those times best killed in church, as his protectors would be few and their vigilance would be minimal, in view of the sanctity of the church grounds.This increased chance of success was however negated by the damnation of the successful assassin after a successful coup.
Following Charles' death a dozen relatives of the childless count came forward, and so the king was able to exert his power in putting forward his own best candidate.

Charles VI (Charles the Mad or Charles the Well Beloved), 1368–1422, king of France (1380–1422), son and successor of King Charles V. During his minority he was under the tutelage of his uncles (particularly Philip the Bold, duke of Burgundy), whose policies drained the royal treasury and provoked popular uprisings in France and in Flanders.
Charles freed himself of this influence in 1388, took as his counselor his brother Louis, duc d'OrlEans, and recalled his father's ministers, the Marmousets.
His rule was challenged by Louis d'OrlEans and the conflict eventually resulted in war between Philip's successor, John the Fearless, and supporters of the Orleanists, known as Armagnacs (see Armagnacs and Burgundians).
