Chronique judiciaire ? Le procès du duc d'Alençon et la littérature historiographique du temps

Abstract : Immortalized by Fouquet’s famous miniature, the trial against the duke of Alençon in 1458 was one of the most important events in the reign of Charles VII, marking a milestone in the strengthening of his royal authority. In this context, the trial has been studied frequently in the past. But what historians have dealt with was mostly the way in which the trial unfolded and its legal and political meaning, while the accounts offered by contemporary chroniclers have received little attention. This article analyzes how these chroniclers depicted the trial against the duke in order to explore how historiography can mediate judicial facts.
