Royalty, eldest son of Louis de Evreux and Marguerite de Artois. He succeeded his father in 1319 as Count of Evreux, of Étampes and Beaumont-le-Roger. He was married to his cousin Jeanne de France, only surviving child and heiress of Louis X, in 1318. Due her age the marriage was not consummated at the time. After the death of Charles IV of France he renounced his right of succession to the french throne in favor for the Valois line. In exchange Jeanne received her inheritance of Navarra and he was named Count of Angouleme and Mortain. The couple was crowned in 1329 and remarried in the same year. They spent their time traveling between their territories and had Navarra reigned mostly by two regents. They protected the Jews in Pamplona and founded a closed quarter for them in the city. After a time of conflicts with Castile and Aragon he allied Navarra with his powerful neighbors. He married his daughter Maria to Peter IV of Aragon and joined Alfonso XI of Castile on a crusade against Granada. He was mortally wounded during the siege of Algeciras.
