  •  In service eh? What did Louis get? (1+ / 0-)

    Charles renegged like mad. He was the king of the kited check, and that includes Louis. His "service" to Louis amounted to "not war." That's it.

    Meanwhile, he promised everything, delivered nothing, and got gold. This was a pattern he repeated with his courtiers, the Spanish, the Dutch, and everyone else. For a restored crown, it was masterful.

    I actually think you're missing the real statecraft here.

    Everyone is innocent of some crime.
