Politics and world events

Western Europe

  • On June 5th, King Louis X. the brawler died suddenly of a fever in Vincennes Castle, leaving behind a problematic line of succession in France and Navarre . At the time of his death, he left behind his daughter Johanna and his pregnant wife Clementine of Hungary . Ludwig's brother Philipp takes over the reign in July. In doing so, he displaces the three-member Regency Council around his uncles Karl von Valois , Ludwig von Évreux and his younger brother Karl von La Marche , whom the king appointed before his death. At the same time, he contests Joan's right of inheritance in France , while her uncle Odo of Burgundy succeeds in obtaining his approval for female inheritance in Navarre and the county of Champagne .
  • On November 15, the queen widow gives birth to the new king John I , for whom Philip is to continue to rule, but the young king dies just four days after his birth. Philip then makes preparations to be crowned King of France and, in breach of his agreement with Odo, also King of Navarre.
