This module focuses on France from the accession of Philip II Augustus in 1180 to the aftermath of Philip IV the Fair's death in the 1310s. Over the course of this long century, the Capetian monarchy developed from an anaemic personal kingship restricted to the Ile-de-France into a bureaucratically administered government that covered much of modern France.
