Charles, nicknamed “The Bad One” for his cruel repression of a minor rebellion in Navarre, was born on October 10th, 1332, in Evreux, France.

Charles died on the 1st January 1387, and his particularly horrific death became famous throughout Europe mostly because it was considered by many as divine justice. When Charles became ill, his physician ordered him to be wrapped head-to-toe in brandy-soaked cloths.

When the nurse finished the wrapping, she wanted to cut off the excess fabric, but she didn’t want to use scissors since she was afraid that she might hurt the king and used a candle to burn off the end, which immediately set fire to the whole cloth. The king burned to death in his palace.
