Wikipedia, 15 December 2017 (Charles VII of France; Charles VII (22 February 1403--22 July 1461), called the Victorious (French: le Victorieux) or the Well-Served (French: le Bien-Servi), was a monarch of the House of Valois who ruled as King of France from 1422 to his death in 1461; he was born in Paris, son of Charles VI of France and Isabeau of Bavaria, and died at Mehun-sur-Yèvre; he inherited the throne of France during the the Hundred Years' War; although Charles VII's legacy is far overshadowed by the deeds and eventual martyrdom of Joan of Arc, he succeeded in what four generations of his predecessors failed to do--the expulsion of the English and the conclusion of the Hundred Years' War; he was succeeded by his son, Louis XI)
