The Mad King and the Maid
Episode 2  |  The History Channel  |  November 13, 2019

At the age of 24, King Charles VI of France lost his mind. The throne of France was in danger. Burgundians and Armagnacs went to battle. Civil war began to rage, encouraging the ambitions of the King of England. The Hundred Years' War flamed up again. But with the help of Joan of Arc, a 17-year-old girl from Domremy, France's Dauphin, the future king Charles VII, resisted England's attempts to seize the throne. From the battlefield of Agincourt to the royal Chateau d'Amboise and the magnificent fortress of Chinon, the epic historical reconstructions and gripping narratives of this series reveal how the lust for power and personal obsessions of princes redrew the frontiers of France and other European nations.
