The Bourguignons were the supporters of the Duke of Burgundy during the Hundred Years War ; their opponents were the Armagnacs , the followers of the Dauphin .

The three branches of the House of Burgundy after the death of Philip the Bold in 1404: Burgundy, Brabant and Nevers

Through the marriage of Duke Philip the Bold of Burgundy with Margaret of Flanders , their son, Johann Ohnefurcht, became heir not only of the Duchy of Burgundy, but also of Flanders, Artois, Brabants and Limburg as well as Franche-Comté - Free County of Burgundy. The House of Burgundy thus ruled large parts of north-east France.
