When Charles died in an attempt to conquer Lorraine in 1477, both Louis XI, King of France, and Maximilian of Habsburg claimed the Burgundian inheritance. Eventually, the Duchy of Burgundy and Artois reverted to France, while the Low Countries and the Franche-Comté came under Habsburg rule. Despite the loss of the Duchy, the Habsburgs still used the title of Duke of Burgundy for their Burgundian territories.
