Charles VI, eleven years old, succeeds his father in 1380, and the capacity falls to the hands from his three uncles, the duke of Burgundy Philippe the Bold one, the duke of Anjou and the duke of Berry.
Their bad administration causes in the large cities of popular seditions; at the same time the Flanders is raised against its count under the control of Philippe Artevelde.
Philippe the Bold one walks against the Flemings with the king, and beats them in Rosebecque (1382), then it returns to punish Paris and the other large cities.
At twenty years Charles VI removes the capacity with his uncles and controls by itself with the former advisers of Charles V, such as the constable of Clisson; France is well controlled during four years, but in 1392 the king is struck of madness and his uncles become again all-powerful.
The duke of Orleans, younger brother by the king, enters in fight with them, but it is assassinated by Jean without Peur, son of Philippe the Bold one (1407).
