Battle of Vienne
Lilies & Lions, An Alternative History
The battle itself was fought near the French city of Vienne in Dauphiné Viennois in the south of France on 4 June 1429. An army conisting of English, Welsh and loyalist French troops along with soliders supplied by Emperor Sigismund engaged the smaller and battered army of the self-proclaimed Charles VII.
Utlimately, Charles' death during the battle as well as the death of the Count of Armagnac, strengthened Henry's hold on the French crown and led to the surrender of the remaining rebellious vassals in the south of the kingdom. The subsequent treaty signed at the site of the battle remains one of the most important documents of the fifteenth century.
Forces belonging to Thomas arrived in battle area not long after morning. A contingent of heavy men-at-arms, mostly French and Normans, laid in hiding from Charles' army.
