John of Burgundy
Birth: May 28, 1371
Death: Sep. 10, 1419

French Royalty. Also known as The Fearless, Jean de Valois and Jean de Bourgogne. Second Duke of Burgundy, he is one of the most dramatic characters among medieval rulers. He inherited the Duchy from his father Philip II the Bold and mother Margaret III, Countess of Flanders. By his wife, Margaret of Bavaria, he had one son, Philip the Good, who succeeded him; and seven daughters: Margaret, who married in 1404 Louis, son of Charles VI., and in 1423 Arthur, Earl of Richmond and afterwards Duke of Brittany; Mary, wife of Adolph of Cleves; Catherine, promised in 1410 to a son of Louis of Anjou; Isabella, wife of Olivier de Chatillon, Count of Penthievre; Joanna, who died young; Anne, who married John, Duke of Bedford, in 1423; and Agnes, who married Charles I., Duke of Bourbon, in 1425. Murdered at a meeting with the Dauphin, (later King Charles VII of France) his body was first buried at Montereau, eventually removed to the Chartreuse of Dijon, and afterwards transferred to the Musee des Beaux Arts (Fine Arts Museum).  (bio by: MC)
