Philip II the Bold

(1342-1404) (Philippe II le Hardi)
   duke of Burgundy
   Born in Pontoise, Philip II the Bold, duke of Burgundy, was the son of jean ii, king of France, and Queen Jeanne de Boulogne. His conduct at the Battle of Poitiers (1363) earned him his sobriquet and the duchy of Burgundy (1363), where he founded the second Capetian dynasty. In 1369 he married Marguerite de Mâle (daughter of Louis de Mâle and widow of Philippe de Rouvres), which brought him Flanders, where he ended a revolt with the Peace of Tournai (1385). Upon the death of his brother, charles v of France (1380), Philip the Bold served as one of the regents for charles vi but was forced from power in 1385. In 1392, he returned to the government, where he opposed his nephew louis d'orléans. Philip the Bold was the patron of the Dutch sculptor Claus Sluter. He was the father of jean the fearless.
