In reality it was only a formality as the king had been imprisoned for over a month. After his attempt to escape Paris failed, his only remaining power and support had slipped away. Except foreign.

Also September 21 in 1435 the Treaty of Arras was signed. It was a turning point for the French in the 100 years war. Philip III recognized Charles VII as King of France and ended his alliance with England. In return Charles exempted him from paying homage to the crown, and promised to punish the men who had murdered his father.

The end of the alliance was spurred by the death of John of Bedford. John was the last remaining piece holding together the alliance. The Uncle of Henry VI, he was married to Philip III's sister Anne, in attempt to cement the alliance. Anne had died three years before her husband. John's death a week before the end of the congress of Arras was the final nail in the coffin of the Anglo-Burgundian alliance which already showed cracks.
