If you become France, salic law forbid the crown to females... Mary would have been Duchess of Burgundy only... with a husband to find anyway!Well, I got the option to become King of France, but my goal was playing Burgundy right, so there would be something left when Charles V comes along. In most games Burgundy gets chopped up (especially when I play Castille/Spain), so I wanted to try the other way around.
Louis (XI) as Dauphin (even if Dauphiné is no more) would have inherited the Crown of France rightfully.
This is what happened with no choice for you: Maximilian... and Charles V will inherit.Talking (a)historically, if France was divided between its various nobles and Charles the Rash died suddenly, wouldn't the same pattern prevail? Mary of Burgundy looking for a wedding candidate that can protect the duchy (in my case Maximillian of Austria). And so Charles will inherit later.
