The independent, powerful and influential duchy was no more. To the collective body of his territory there came to be applied the term "ducatus" (the territories ruled by a duke). The legal implications of the accession of John the Good are frequently misunderstood. The daughter of Charles the Bold, Mary of Burgundy who in 1477 married Archduke Maximilian of Austria, the future Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, used the title of Duchess of Burgundy, and her heirs described themselves as Dukes of Burgundy, refusing to accept the loss of the duchy.
