Charles VI is the King of France, whose claim to the throne King Henry does not recognize.
Somewhat timid, he is brought to a great deal of trouble by his son the Dauphin. Rather than lead his armies himself, he sends his noblemen to do so for him. He knows too well what has happened to the French in the past, and is more cautious than either his headstrong son or most of his commanders. He is capable of being roused, however, particularly by the pressure of his followers. He is gracious in defeat, and at least sounds as though he believes the treaty he signs is a good thing.
