Blois

 


Today, Blois is a town in central France.

 

Back in the days, the counts of Blois were vassals of the kings, who at the time were provided by the Capetian Dynasty.

 

The first count of Blois was Thibaut I the Cheat. Thibaut died around 977.

 

Mainly due to their territorial growth, the counts of Blois became top competition for the king of France.

It really got interesting in the year 1023, when the count of Blois, then Eudes II, added Champagne to his realm and thus sandwiched the king between his terrains.
