And Isabeau of Bavaria, was born in Paris on the 22nd of February 1403.
Queen Isabeau, who had generally supported the Burgundian party, was now practically separated from her husband, whose madness had become pronounced.
Isabeau of Bavaria was freely accused of intrigue with the duke of Orleans.
Queen Isabeau was imprisoned at Tours, but escaped to Burgundy.
The capture of Paris by the Burgundians on the 29th of May 1418 was followed by a series of horrible massacres of the Armagnacs; and in July Duke John and Isabeau, who assumed the title of regent, entered Paris.
The murder of John the Fearless in 1419 under the eyes of the dauphin Charles threw the Burgundians definitely into the arms of the English, and his successor Philip the Good, in concert with Queen Isabeau, concluded (1420) the treaty of Troyes with Henry V., who became master of France.
