De Quaeye Werelt - Anno 1477

The Battle of Nancy was a battle between Burgundy - commanded by Duke Charles Le Téméraire - and the swiss and Lorraine armies - commanded by the Duke of Lorraine, René II.


Charles Le Téméraire was killed on january 5, 1477. His dead marked a major historical turning point, the end of the dream of an immense Burgundy. His daughter, Marie de Bourgogne, inherited his empire at the age of just 19, and the great cities of Flanders (Ghent, Bruges and Antwerp) decided it was time to reclaim stolen property an rights, and began revolts. In response, Burgundy, rich and dominant, sent its immense army to our regions...
