Jeanne de Bourgogne
Birth: 1293
Death: Nov. 12, 1348

French queen, daughter of Robert II. and Agnes de France and sister of Marguerite de Bourgogne. She is described as very intelligent, well educated and strong willed. When she married Philippe of Valois in 1313 she couldn't hope to be queen of France one day and when King Philippe IV died one year later he left three grown sons. In 1319 she gave birth to a boy, that was named Jean and who will be the first of her children that survives his childhood. In the following years she gives birth to seven other children but only two will survive. Then the unthinkable happens in 1327 the third of the sons of Philippe IV dies without a heir. His widow Jeanne d'Evreux is pregnant but gives birth to a daughter. Philippe de Valois, who administrated the kingdom since the death of Charles IV, is crowned together with Jeanne, but Edward III a grandson of Philippe IV considers himself to be rightful king of France and declares war. In 1337 the Hundred Years' War between England and France starts with the invasion of the Guyenne by the french army. In August 1346 Philippe is defeated in the famous Battle of Crecy. In September 1348 Jeanne becomes a victim of the "Black Death" that kills one third of the European population and one quarter of the citizens of Paris. While her body was buried in St. Denis her heart was buried in the Abbey of Cīteaux beside her parents. In the following January Philippe married the sixteen years old Blanche de Navarre and died two years after Jeanne.

I'm sorry you were one of the victims of the Bubonic Plague, which took so many, many lives. Rest in Peace, Jeanne. See you in Heaven.
