The betrothal of Isabella, daughter of Charles VI of France, to King Richard II in 1396. With national stability secured, Richard began negotiating a permanent peace with France and a truce was agreed to, which was to last 28 years. As part of the truce, Richard agreed to marry Isabella, daughter of Charles VI of France, when she came of age. There were some misgivings about the betrothal, in particular because the princess was then only six years old, and thus would not be able to produce an heir to the throne of England for many years.
