(Because of the lack of events during those years, this post will concern three years)
At last I had a small revenge on the Bourguignons Family. With their high numbers of wars accross Europe against fellow Christians, their relations with the Pope fell far enough. Still Papal controller, the Lancaster regency Council asked the Pope to excommunicate the young François Ier de Bourgogne, who got the head of Burgundy only in 1412 ! By March 1415, the Pope validated our demands.
In october 1416, Burgundy signed a white peace with Austria, mostly because both states were unable to send troops where was the enemy, lacking military access through the Holy Roman Empire.
Of course, those scums could not stay without war and annexions ! In November of this same year, they declared war on Hainaut and Lorraine once again ! A truly important fact is that they were allied with Hainaut in the war against Austria ! Those scummy dogs have no honor at all ! How dare they claim the crown of France ? They don't even have enough honor to hold a noble title ! They ended this war in may 1417 by annexing their former ally Hainaut...
All those terrible actions could not stay unpunished. The Valois also began to have a really bad opinion of the Bourguignon House. They decided to break their alliance in mid 1417 !
For my part, during those three years, I took some time to rebuild my reputation with European crowns, partially destroyed by my infamy following the wars in France and Ireland. I also built new troops, to replace the important number of mercenaries I used in the last war against the Valois. THis last war really cost me a lot of money because of this. The next war will see a much more greater number of regular troops in place of those mercenaries.
In december 1417, the situation was mostly the same in France and England. What has been reinforced during those three years was the hate the three crowns had for each other !
