Towards the end of the life of Philip III, Duke of Burgundy, Charles fell under suspicion of practising witchcraft, in an effort to supplant Charles, Count of Charolais, as the heir. Charles I fled to France and died soon after.

He married Marie d'Albret, daughter of Charles II d'Albret on 11 June 1456, but had no legitimate children. He was succeeded by his brother John.
