The aim of this text is to analyze how the debates Jean Petit’s Justification about the Tyrannicide of Louis of Orléans gave rise to minority and majority positions at in Council of Constance (1414–1418) within the context of the French nation, the general congregations and the general sessions. In order to understand the consolidation of majorities and minorities on this matter it is essential to explain the role played by the emperor Sigismund and his political alliances at the Council. Finally, we explain how Jean Gerson who tried relentlessly to condemn Jean Petit´s thesis, rationalized his failure and justified the Council’s actions.
