Royalty, Queen of Navarra, Countess of Champagne and of Brie, by marriage to Philipp IV also Queen of France. Born in Bar-sur-Seine as the only daughter of Henri I and Blanche de Artois. When her father died in 1274 several cities rebelled and Castile and Aragon were ready to invade Navarra. Blanche asked Philipp III for help who returned the peace in Navarra. In exchange Jeanne was engaged to the kings second son, Philippe. When the kings eldest son died in 1276, Jeanne was sent to Paris to be raised with her future husband. They were married in 1284 at Notre-Dame de Paris and Philippe succeeded his father a year later. She will bear six children in this marriage of which two will die young, three will be French kings and one English queen. She never involved herself in Philipps politics, but governed the Champagne and Navarra personally. When the Count of Bar invaded the Champagne she raised an army and defeated him in the Battle of Commines. She also reconquered Navarra from her Spanish neighbors and guaranteed a lasting peace there. Philipp is the first King of France and Navarra but never visited his southern kingdom. In 1304 she founded the College de Navarre in Paris for students mostly from Champagne and Navarra. She died aged 32 years at Vincennes and is buried at the Franciscan monastery. Her grave was destroyed by a fire in 1580.  (bio by: Lutetia)
