[edit] Life

His uncle Charles II, Duke of Lorraine had only daughters. Antoine didn't conceal his wish to inherit the Duchy of Lorraine, and quarrelled with Charles. Charles attacked Antoine, but Antoine had Philip the Good of Burgundy as ally.

After Charles II died in 1431, Antoine attacked the new Duke, René of Anjou, defeating and capturing him at the Battle of Bulgnéville, on 1 July 1431.[1] A decade of negotiation followed, since Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor was unwilling to recognise Antoine as Duke, pronouncing for René in 1434[2].

Ultimately, Antoine gave up his claim on the Duchy of Lorraine, by a treaty of 27 March 1441. In return, Antoine's County of Vaudémont was recognised as independent, and his son Frederick became engaged to the Duke's daughter Yolande of Lorraine. The dynastic consequence was that Antoine's grandson became Duke.

Antoine also took part in several local armed conflicts.

[edit] Family

He was the son of Frederick of Lorraine and Marguerite de Joinville.

He married Marie of Harcourt (1398-1476), on 12 August 1416. She was countess of Harcourt, and of Aumale, and baroness of Elbeuf. Her father was Jean VII of Harcourt, her mother Marie of Alençon. Their children were:

   * Ferry II of Vaudémont (1428-1470), count of Vaudémont and sire of Joinville
   * Jean VIII of Harcourt-Lorraine (died 1473), count of Aumale and baron of Elbeuf
   * Henri of Lorraine (died 1505), bishop of Thérouanne (1447-1484), then bishop of Metz (1484-1505),
   * Marie (died 1455), who married en 1450 Alain IX of Rohan (died 1462)
