Treaty of Troyes

The Treaty of Troyes saw that Charles VI of France after his death would be succeeded by Henry VI. In 1420, it disinherited the legitimate heir to the French throne and proclaimed Henry V the successor to the French king, Charles VI. When Henry and Charles died within months of one another in 1422, the infant Henry VI of England was proclaimed in Paris to be king of both France and England.
