Feinde Widerwillen? Französisch‑burgundischer Discours über den Vertrag in Troyes
Languages of publication
The Treaty of Troyes meant a fundamental breakthrough in relations between the Duke of Burgundy and French Kingdom, as well as between him and England. The article is using chosen narrative sources to try to analyse forms of perception of the identitity of Burgundy in relation to both partners, particularly France. It leads to a conclusion that it is possible to follow two marginal, mutually influential attitudes: the tendency to an independent political consciousness whose initiator is the land of Flanders and the tendency to include this consciousness into historical tradition of France.
