 Shell Games: Scams, Frauds, and Deceits (1300-1650)
One of the most intricate frauds ever perpetrated on the French legal system occurred in the early fourteenth century (1329-1332) and concerned the claims of Robert of Artois, a prince of the Capetian royal blood, to the county of Artois, by right of his grandfather, Count Robert II of Artois.
After trying twice unsuccessfully (and through legal process) in 1309 and 1318 to gain Artois from the countess Mahaut, his paternal aunt, Robert was desperate, desperate enough to win the county through deceitful means.
He and several supporters concocted an elaborate story based on a simple premise that his grandfather, Count Robert II of Artois, had invested his father, Philippe of Artois, with the county and that letters existed to prove this.
