Coins catalogue of Dauphine

 

County of Dauphine

 

In 1349 the last count d'Albon Humbert II sold his county Vienne to King Philip VI of France. The county, which was also called Dauphine - the figure of a dolphin in the coat of arms (from where he took the coat of arms of the county from which to the nearest sea is not less than 300 km. - a great secret) passed into the possession of grandson Philip - Charles (the future Charles V), after which everything direct heirs of the French throne, according to tradition, became the "Dauphins of Viennese". Under the terms of the sale, the county had to remain independent, which, of course, was not very much respected, which is indirectly indicated by the fact of minting the county coins on behalf of the kings of France, and not on behalf of the current dauphin.
