Philippe Auguste (1165 - 1223): le roi chanceux?
Talk in French by Patrick Landri

Fortunatissimus, Auguste. These are some of the adjectives used by the contemporaries to describe Philippe II of France. His particularly long run reign shapes the bases of a modern state. ’French people’ would then discover the central administration. Following Charlemagne’s steps, Philippe Auguste also maintains the supremacy of the Capetian dynasty over western Europe during this time.
