      This marriage was arranged as part of the Treaty of Le Goulet which secured John I's Angevin claims. John's nephew, Arthur, was also acknowledged to be John's man, a move that separated him from Philip Augustus. "For John, Le Goultet must have been a triumph: a year and a month after Richard had died, he had finally and irrevocably secured the recognition of his overlord, the king of France, for his succession to Richard's continental lands. The treaty was concluded on May 22, 1200, with the nuptials of the twelve-year-old Louis and the eleven-year-old Blanche celebrated by the archbishop of Bordeaux at Ponte Audemar the following day, the same day that John received Arthur's homage for Brittany, no doubt sulkily given, but given nonetheless." Church, p. 92.
