About Blanche de Dreux, dame de Brie-Comte-Robert

Blanche of Brittany

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 (Redirected from Blanche de Dreux)

Blanche of Brittany (1271-1327) was a daughter of John II, Duke of Brittany and his wife Beatrice of England. She is also known as Blanche de Dreux.


Blanche was married to Philip of Artois, who was the son of Robert II of Artois. The couple had six children, they were:

Marguerite (1285–1311), married in 1301 Louis, Count of Évreux

Robert III of Artois (1287–1342)

Isabelle (1288–1344), a nun at Poissy

Jeanne (1289 – aft. 1347), married in 1301 in Senlis Gaston I, Count of Foix

Marie (1291 – January 22, 1365, Wijnendaele), Lady of Merode, married in 1309 in Paris John I, Marquis of Namur

Catherine (1296–1368, Normandy), married John II of Ponthieu, Count of Aumale

Blanche's husband served under his father at the Battle of Furnes, where he was wounded. He never recovered, and died of the effects over a year later. His premature death led to a legal battle later, when Artois was left to his sister Mahaut rather than his son Robert. Robert was never the proper Count of Artois, on Mahaut's death Artois passed to her daughter, Jeanne II, Countess of Burgundy.

Blanche's daughter, Marguerite was the mother of Philip III of Navarre who was married to Joan II of Navarre. Her sister, Marie was married to Guy IV, Count of Saint-Pol.

Blanche died on 19 March 1327 at the Chateau de Bois-de-Vincennes, and was buried at the Église des Jacobins in Paris.
