John the Fearless (FrenchJean sans PeurDutchJan zonder Vrees; 28 May 1371 – 10 September 1419) was Duke of Burgundy (the second of the Valois dynastyas John I from 1404 until his death. A scion of the royal house of France, he played an important role in French affairs during the early 15th century,[1] in particular the struggles to rule the country for the mentally ill King Charles VI (his first cousin) and the Hundred Years’ War with England. His rash, unscrupulous, and violent political dealings[1] contributed to the eruption of the Armagnac–Burgundian Civil War in France, and culminated in his assassination in 1419.

The involvement of Charles, the heir to the French throne, in his assassination, prompted John’s son and successor Philip to seek an alliance with the English, thereby bringing the Hundred Years’ War to its final phase.
