La Trémoille, Georges de

Georges de La Trémoille (zhôrzh də lä trāmoi´yə or trēmōō´yə), c.1385–1446, favorite of King Charles VII of France, sometime chamberlain to John the Fearless of Burgundy. He was captured by the English at Agincourt (1415) during the Hundred Years War. He later served as a mediator between John the Fearless and the dauphin, Charles VII. Having become Charles's favorite after the murder of Pierre de Giac (1427), he attempted to undermine the influence of Joan of Arc on the king. Overthrown (1433) by a coalition under Constable de Richemont (Arthur III of Brittany), he joined the Praguerie (1440) but was later pardoned.
