    What if Charles VII and his court took no notice of Joan of Arc??

    Then he remains the King of Bourges, sees Bedford establish English rule in the North, and Charles' successors can hope for nothing more than forming a Southern kingdom, though civil war is more likely with other magnates "doing a Burgundy"

    Don't underestimate the Spider King.
    While Charles would remain just king in the south, Louis XI might succeed in gaining the north back. Especially if the War of the Roses starts.

    Unless some sort of lasting peace held than the French would eventually take back their land. Of course this would poision Anglo-French relations longer than in OTL.
