The Wars against France
In 1405, Arles was called into the war by its allies, the Kingdom of Scotland and the Duchy of Burgundy. It was largely inactive during the war except in 1419, where it sent 15,000 troops to help defend Scottish owned Auvergne against the French and in 1421, where it sent 10,000 troops to attack the south of Dauphine, and 10,000 more troops from Auvergne to attack Dauphine from the north. They were also supported by 4000 Icelandic troops. The attack succeeded and they occupied Dauphine, Which was major in helping the French and Burgundian parties to secure peace in 1423.
Saint Georges War
In 1429, Arles seeked to expand their lands in the Italian Peninsula. The Chance came during Saint Georges War, when Florence, Modena and Monterfrat attacked the state of Milan. Arles joined the war in 1430 on Florence's side. With an army of 9000, Arles attacked the town of Celle Ligure. Suprisingly, the Milanese defenders managed to repel the attack. The next year, William VI gathered another army, this time numbering 14,000, and attacked Celle Ligure, together with blockade of the navy. The attack succeded and Milanese troops fled away to Milan itself, allowing Arles to take control of the Towns of Celle Ligure and Sant'Amborgio until the end of the war.
The Rebellion of Nableau and Tatchslon
In 1426, Nableau and Tatchslon was one of the several people unhappy with Arles' peace with France, thinking that the King William VI is weak. There was also brewing discontent with the pope. As a result, They decided to rebel. They slowly marched round the country, steadily gathering troops and protesters. 10,000 troops were sent to quell the rebellion, but the protesters lashed out at the troops, seriously injuring two. King William VI was angered by this and sent assassins to kill them. Tatchslon was killed by poison but Nableau escaped to France. Current situations are unknown. This rebellion caused instability in Arles for a few years but it was solved by 1430.
Arlean Contribution to the Barbary Crusade
Arles was one of the most avid supporters of the Barbary Crusade. In 1430, 9000 troops were sent to Tripolitania to help out. In 1431, another 1500 were sent and in 1432, another 6000 troops are sent. After the disastrous battle at Sabratah, Arlean troops were evacuated back to Arles. The Arlean Economy was severely damaged and it took several years to go back to prewar levels.
