    The Capet­ian dy­nasty seemed se­cure both dur­ing and after the reign of Philip IV from 1285 to 1313. Philip had left three sur­viv­ing sons (Louis, Philip and Charles) and a daugh­ter (Is­abella). Each son be­came kingin turn but died young with­out male heirs, leav­ing only daugh­ters who could not in­herit the throne. When Charles IV died in 1328, the French suc­ces­sion be­came more prob­lem­atic. In 1328 three can­di­dates had plau­si­ble claims to the throne: 1. Philip, Count of Valois, son of Charles of Valois, who was the closest heir in male line and a grandson of Philip III. Because his father was the brother of the late Philip IV, he was therefore a nephew of Philip IV and the cousin of Louis X, Philip V and Charles IV. Further, Charles IV had chosen him as the regent before his death. 2. Joan of Navarre, daughter of Louis X. Although Philip V had implemented Salic law to disbar females from inheriting the French Crown, she nevertheless had a strong claim as the heir-gen...

    The Hun­dred Years' War could be con­sid­ered a lengthy war of suc­ces­sion be­tween the houses of Val­ois and Plan­ta­genet. The early reign of Philip VIwas a promis­ing one for France. The new king fought the Flem­ings on be­half of his vas­sal, the count of Flan­ders, and re­stored that count to power. Ed­ward III's ag­gres­sion against Scot­land, a French ally, prompted Philip VI to con­fis­cate Guyenne. In the past the Eng­lish kings would have to sub­mit to the King of France. But Ed­ward, hav­ing de­scended from the French kings, claimed the throne for him­self. France was then at the height of its power. No one be­lieved that the Eng­lish king could make good his claim to France. Ed­ward's ini­tial strat­egy was to ally with Flan­ders and the princes of the Em­pire. The al­liances were costly and not very pro­duc­tive. While on a truce the French and Eng­lish kings in­ter­vened in the War of the Bre­ton Suc­ces­sion. In 1346, Ed­ward in­vaded France and pil­laged the coun­tr...

    With the ex­pul­sion of the Eng­lish, Charles VII had reestab­lished his king­dom as the fore­most power of West­ern Eu­rope. He cre­ated France's first stand­ing army since Roman times, and lim­ited papal power in the Gal­li­can Church by the Prag­matic Sanc­tion of Bourges. But his later years were marred by quar­rels with his el­dest son and heir, the Dauphin Louis, who re­fused to obey him. The dauphin was ban­ished from court for his in­trigues, and did not re­turn to France until his fa­ther's death. Louis XI suc­ceeded his fa­ther in 1461. At the be­gin­ning of his reign Louis re­versed his fa­ther's poli­cies, abol­ish­ing the Prag­matic Sanc­tion to please the pope and the stand­ing armies, which he dis­trusted, in favor of Swiss mer­ce­nar­ies. As a prince he had leagued with the no­bil­ity against his fa­ther, but as a king he found that his power could only be main­tained by sub­du­ing them. He was the life­long enemy of Charles the Bold, Count of Charo­lais, and later D...

    Charles VIII suc­ceeded his fa­ther in 1483, at the age of 13. Dur­ing his mi­nor­ity the no­bles again at­tempted to seize power, but they were de­feated by Charles' sis­ter Anne of France. Charles' mar­riage to Anne of Brit­tanypre­vented a fu­ture total Hab­s­burg en­cir­clement of France. As the heir of the House of Anjou, Charles VIII de­cided to press his claim to the King­dom of Naples. It was the be­gin­ning of the Ital­ian Wars. In Sep­tem­ber 1494 Charles in­vaded Italy with 25,000 men, and at­tained his ob­ject by 22 Feb­ru­ary 1495, vir­tu­ally un­op­posed. But the speed and power of the French ad­vance fright­ened the pow­ers of Italy. The League of Venice, which con­sisted of the Re­publics of Venice and Flo­rence, the Duchies of Milan and Man­tua, the Kings of Spain and Naples, the Em­peror and the Pope, united against the French. Charles, who did not wish to be trapped in Naples, had to fight against them in the Bat­tle of Fornovo. Charles suc­ceeded in re­turn­ing t...

    The last phase of Val­ois rule in France was marked by the French Wars of Re­li­gion. Henry II died in a joust­ing ac­ci­dent in 1559. His el­dest son and heir, Fran­cis II, suc­ceeded him. The new king was al­ready King of Scot­land by right of his wife, Mary, Queen of Scots. The queen's ma­ter­nal rel­a­tives, the House of Guise, gained an as­cen­dancy over the young king. The House of Guise was a cadet branch of the ducal House of Lor­raine. They claimed de­scent from Charle­magne and had de­signs on the French throne. They con­sid­ered the House of Bour­bon, princes of the blood, as their nat­ural en­e­mies. The lead­ing Bour­bons, the broth­ers An­toine, King of Navarre, and Louis, Prince of Condé, were Protes­tants. The House of Guise iden­ti­fied them­selves as cham­pi­ons of the Catholic cause. They were on the point of ex­e­cut­ing Condé when the young king died. With the suc­ces­sion of her minor son Charles IX in 1560, Cather­ine de' Medici ma­neu­vered for a bal­ance of...
