Philip II "Le Hardi" of Burgundy
Birth: Jan. 15, 1342
Death: Apr. 27, 1404

French Royalty. Duke of Burgundy, also known as Philip the Bold and as Philip II of Bourgogne. He was the younger son of King of France John II "the Good" and Bonne of Luxembourg. In 1369 he married Margaret of Dampierre, widow of Philip de Rouvre and heiress of Flanders. After his death, the corpse was embalmed and the heart was sent to Paris to be buried with his ancestors at St. Denis. On May 1, 1404 the body was transferred to Dijon accompanied by sixty official mourners, Philip’s sons, John the Fearless and Antoine De Valois, Duke of Brabant, with two counts and six leading Flemish nobles. Leading members of Philips household and administration as well as sixteen chaplains also escorted the company. On June 1 the cortege reached Dijon, where it was greeted by 100 burgesses and 100 poor men all dressed in black, along with all the clergy of Dijon. On June 16 the Duke was finally laid to rest in the choir, at the Charterhouse. (bio by: MC)
