Josh Zucker from the Grand Dukes of the West podcast joins us for the first episode in our 5-part miniseries on the regents of King Charles VI of France. This episode, we're pitting Josh's candidate Philip of Burgundy against Ben's candidate Louis of Orléans, and seeing which of them Eliza deems to be the supreme regent.
In this episode, we'll see the kickoff of the infamous rivalry between the Orléanist and Burgundian branches of the House of Valois. And if you think this episode is chaotic, you ain't seen nothing yet!
Throughout this episode you'll hear a rendition of "Reveillez-Vous, Picards", a folk song sung by Burgundian soldiers in the 15th Century. If you enjoyed it, the full track is available on YouTube, however we were unable to find the original artist. If you know who we should credit with this absolute banger, please let us know!
Join us again next week when we'll have on Veronica Fortune of the Passed podcast to compare the "nice uncles" John of Berry and Louis of Bourbon, though there's plenty more scandal to be had between these two.
