Présentation

To win the public opinion for one’s political aims has always been necessary, long before our present time. Charles the Bold (1433-1477) and his adversaries were perfectly conscious of this, as the exchange of manifestos all along the twelve years of his career shows. When he took power in 1465, he boltered his action by two consecutive manifestos in order to support his measures against the Croy family. In 1470, Louis XI explained the opening of the war against him, and Charles the Bold replied. At the same moment, Baudouin, bastard of Burgundy and some others changed sides: the duke accused them, the French chancery took their defense, incriminating the duke of homosexuality by texts which were probably never published. One year later, the duke attacked Antoine de Chabannes, count of Dammartin, who returned a rough military answer. In 1472 started a new war with a new propaganda against the king, accused of having had his brother Charles of France poisened. In 1473, Burgundy prepared his conquest of Guelders by justifying admonitions. The greatest European extension of the manifestos pro and contra was reached during the Burgundian e- ort to occupy the Cologne Electorate in the “Neuss war” of 1474-1475, when the duke, the emperor Frederick III and the Empire spoke one against the other. They attained a last peak with the conquest of Lorraine en 1475. All these texts, most of them unpublished or poorly so, are edited according to the archival sources and commented in a detailed historic introduction.
