Les rois de France et l’affirmation de l’autorité ducale durant le principat de Robert II de Bourgogne (1272-1306)

Abstract : The reign of Robert II of Burgundy (1272-1306) marks a rupture within the Capetian duchy's government. The evolutions that feature his governance are deeply linked to the relations that unite him to the kings contemporary to his reign such as Philip III the Bold and Philip IV the Fair. Showing signs of a flawless faithfulness, Robert II places himself close to these kings in order to reaffirm his authority and to fulfill his own ambitions. This rapprochement is due to two major events - the first one being the matrimonial policy initiated by the Dukes of Burgundy since Hugh IV and the second one the numerous favours from Robert II to the kings both in the military field and regarding royal government. This closeness plays a part in the progression of the government's doings, because he frequently leaves his lands to be on the king's duty, Robert II has to hand down his power and to be able to have his authority respected despite his numerous absences. Besides, these ties take part in the evolution of his power and seem to modify the administrative policies in the duchy - proven by the advancement in bookkeeping and in the careers of people close to the duke.
