Troyes is a commune of France. It is the capital city of the Aube department in north-central France. It is on the Seine river about 150 km (93 mi) southeast of Paris. It was briefly the capital of France in the early 15th century.
In 1417, the Duke of Burgandy and Isabeau of Bavaria, wife of Charles VI of France, planned to establish the capital of France at Troyes. This included a court, council, and parliament with comptroller's offices.
