Jeanne and Charles where both born in Vincennes. Charles parents where her godparents. In 1350 they where married, both only 12 years old. In the same year Philippe VI died and was succeeded by is son Jean II. Charles and Jeanne are named Monseigneur le Dauphin and Madame la Dauphine, titles all successors to the french throne and their wives wore from then on. It is probably due to the fact that they were raised together that her marriage was happy and full of love. In 1364 Jean II died an a english prison and in May Charles and Jeanne were crowned in Reims. During Charles reign the english troops are mostly defeated and have to leave most of France.
