These show him to have been in Pont on 15 June 1429 and in Bar on 21 November 1430, his movements between those dates are uncertain: Monstrelet does not mention him as one of those present at the coronation at Reims; Chartier states that he arrived at Reims the day before the coronation, 1, p. 97; Bouvier says that he came to Charles VII and the Maid at Senlis after the coronation, p. 140; Contamine does not mention his presence at Reims, ‘Les Pairs de France au Sacre des Rois (xv e): Nature et Portée d’un programme iconographique’, in De Jeanne d’Arc, pp.

There is evidence that, whilst he raised taxes to finance the last phases of the Hundred Years War and his own dynastic ambitions, he did his best to protect his subjects from unreasonable exactions. In 1450 at Tours, for example, he begged Charles VII of France to reduce his demands on Anjou and Maine because the war had caused them terrible suffering. René offered to waive his own rights to the half of the taille77 in return for a reciprocal reduction by Charles. René also asked him to alleviate the burden of the tax on wine, the principal source of income in the duchy.

René, however, and his young nobles were eager for a fight when the armies met on 2 July near Bulgnéville. Duke René had been wounded in the course of his calamitous defeat and was taken prisoner by a humble squire who handed him over to Vaudemont, but the count was forced to give him up to the Burgundians. René was valuable not just for the prospect of a large ransom but also as a bargaining counter with duke Philip’s enemy Charles VII. 55 Contemporary chroniclers were unwilling to criticise René directly for the defeat, after all, when they were writing, he bore a kingly title and was a great French prince of the blood.
