Arthur was a more youthful child of Duke John IV and his third spouse Joanna of Navarre, thus an individual from the Ducal House of Montfort. Arthur was conceived at the Château de Suscinio.

Only a year prior to his own passing, Arthur{https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_III,_Duke_of_Brittany} succeeded his nephew Peter II as Duke. Arthur was likewise main Earl of Richmond; the earldom had regularly been allowed to the Dukes of Brittany, yet after the passing of Arthur's dad, the English declined to perceive his beneficiaries as dukes. In any case, they kept on styling themselves "Tally of Richmond", while the English title was given to John Plantagenet, Duke of Bedford (1389– 1435) in 1414.

Arthur was an imperative figure at the French court amid the Hundred Years' War, even before getting to be Duke of Brittany.

Arthur agreed with the Armagnac group against the Burgundians amid their common clash in France which endured from 1410 to 1414. He at that point entered the administration of the Dauphin Louis, Duke of Guyenne, whose close companion he progressed toward becoming and whose dowager he later wedded. He benefitted by his situation at court to get the lieutenancy of the Bastille, the governorship of the duchy of Nemours, and the appropriated domains of Jean Larchevêque, seigneur of Parthenay.[3] He battled at the Battle of Agincourt on 25 October 1415, where he was injured and caught. He was discharged by the English in 1420 and convinced his sibling, Duke John, to sign the Treaty of Troyes. In 1422, the English made him Duke of Touraine. Be that as it may, as the English declined to give him a high command[3] he in this way came back to the fidelity of the Dauphin in 1424, and was made Constable of France with help from Yolande of Aragon in 1425.[4]

Arthur currently induced his sibling, John V, Duke of Brittany, to finish up the arrangement of Saumur with Charles VII of France (October 7, 1425). Be that as it may, however he saw plainly enough the measures important for progress, he came up short on the disposition and intends to complete them. The peace finished up among John and the English in September 1427, nearby his relentlessness and terrible temper, prompted his ejection from the court, where Georges de la Trémoille, whom he himself had prescribed to the ruler, stayed preeminent for a long time, amid which Arthur attempted futile to oust him.[5]

As Constable of France, Arthur battled nearby Joan of Arc amid her triumph at the Battle of Patay on 18 June 1429. He joined his sibling John in the attack of Pouancé in 1432, where he quite however reluctantly battled close by English skippers, as the Duke of Brittany was aligned with the English at the time. Around this time he got an offer from the Duke of Bedford (who would have liked to misuse the contention among Richemont and la Trémoille), which incorporated Trémoille's territories in Poitou as a byproduct of him exchanging sides. Poitou was not in English hands; still he discovered more reasonable to grab those terrains through less strenuous means.[6] On the fifth of March 1432 Charles VII closed with him and with Brittany the bargain of Rennes; yet it was not until June of the next year that Trémoille was ousted. Arthur currently continued the war against the English, and in the meantime took energetic measures against the looting groups of troopers and workers known as routiers or écorcheurs
