Charles de Valois

\n

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

\n

Charles de Valois (12 mars 1270 - 16 décembre 1325), fils du roi Philippe le Hardi et d'Isabelle d'Aragon.

\n

Empereur titulaire de Constantinople

\n

Roi titulaire d'Aragon

\n

Comte de Valois de 1286 à 1325

\n

Comte d'Alençon

\n

Comte de Chartres

\n

Comte d'Anjou de 1290 à 1325

\n

Comte du Maine de 1290 à 1313 (Charles III)

\n

Moyennement intelligent, démesurément ambitieux et passablement avide, Charles de Valois collectionne les principautés. Il eut en apanage les comtés de Valois, d'Alençon et du Perche (1285). Il devint en 1290 comte d'Anjou et du Maine, par son mariage avec Marguerite, fille aînée de Charles II d'Anjou, roi nominal de Sicile ; par un deuxième mariage, contracté avec l'héritière de Baudouin II de Courtenay, dernier empereur latin de Constantinople, il avait aussi des prétentions sur ce trône. Mais il est fils, frère, beau-frère et gendre de rois ou de reines (de France, de Navarre, d'Angleterre et de Naples), en attendant d'être de surcroît, après sa mort, père de roi (Philippe VI).

\n

Il rêve donc de mieux et courut toute sa vie après une couronne qu'il n'obtint jamais. En 1280, le pape le reconnaît roi d'Aragon (sous la vassalité du Saint-Siège), comme fils de sa mère, en concurrence avec le roi Pierre III d'Aragon qui après la conquête de l'île de Sicile est un ennemi de la papauté. Charles épouse alors Marguerite de Sicile, fille napolitaine du roi pour renforcer sa position en Sicile, supportée par le pape. Grâce à cette Croisade d'Aragon entreprise par son père Philippe III contre l'avis de son frère, le futur Philippe le Bel, il a cru gagner un royaume et n'a gagné que le ridicule d'avoir été couronné avec un chapeau de cardinal en 1285, ce qui lui vaut le sobriquet de roi du chapeau. Il n'osera jamais user du sceau royal qu'il s'est fait faire à cette occasion et devra renoncer au titre.

\n

Sa principale qualité est d'être un bon chef de guerre. Il commande en Flandre avec efficacité en 1297. Le roi en déduira un peu vite que son frère peut conduire une expédition en Italie, contre Frédéric II de Sicile. L'affaire se terminera par la paix de Caltabellotta (1302).

\n

Charles songe en même temps à la couronne impériale et épouse en 1301 Catherine de Courtenay, impératrice titulaire, petite-fille héritière du dernier empereur latin de Constantinople, Baudouin II de Courtenay. Mais il lui faut la connivence du pape, qu'il obtient par son expédition en Italie, où il court secourir Charles II d'Anjou contre Frédéric II de Sicile, son cousin. Nommé vicaire pontifical, il se perd dans l'imbroglio de la politique italienne, se compromet dans un massacre à Florence et dans de sordides exigences financières, gagne la Sicile où il consolide sa réputation de pillard et rentre en France déconsidéré en 1301-1302. Catherine de Courtenay meurt en 1307.

\n

Charles se remet à convoiter une nouvelle couronne quand meurt l'empereur Albert de Habsbourg en 1308. Son frère l'y encourage, qui ne souhaite pas prendre lui-même le risque d'un échec et pense probablement qu'un homme de paille sur le trône impérial serait une bonne chose pour la France. La candidature avorte avec l'élection de Henri VII, empereur des Romains. Charles continuera de rêver à la couronne orientale des Courtenay.

\n

Il n'en bénéficie pas moins de l'affection que Philippe le Bel, qui a souffert du remariage de son père, porte à son seul frère germain et il se trouve de ce fait placé à des responsabilités qui dépassent largement son talent. Ainsi c'est lui qui dirige en 1311 l'ambassade royale aux conférences de Tournai avec les Flamands ; il s'y brouille avec Enguerrand de Marigny, qui l'éclipse ouvertement. Le frère du roi ne pardonnera pas l'affront et sera le plus acharné contre Marigny après la mort du roi.

\n

Il s'est farouchement opposé au supplice de Jacques de Molay, grand maître des Templiers, en 1314.

\n

La mort prématurée de Louis X en 1316 laisse à Charles de France l'espoir d'un rôle politique, mais il ne peut empêcher son neveu Philippe de France de prendre la régence en attendant de devenir le roi Philippe V. À la mort de celui-ci en 1322, nul ne songe au comte de Valois.

\n

En 1324, il commande avec succès l'armée de son neveu Charles IV pour enlever la Guyenne et la Flandre au roi d'Angleterre Édouard II d'Angleterre. Il contribue, par la prise de plusieurs villes, à accélérer la paix, qui fut conclue entre le roi de France et la sœur de ce prince, Isabelle, reine d'Angleterre.

\n

Il meurt le 16 décembre 1325 à Nogent-le-Roi, laissant un fils qui montera sur le trône de France sous le nom de Philippe VI et commencera la branche des Valois : une revanche posthume pour l'homme dont on a dit : Fils de roi, frère de roi, oncle de trois rois, père de roi, mais jamais roi lui-même.

\n

Il a été marié trois fois :

BIOGRAPHY: b. March 12, 1270

\n

d. Dec. 16, 1325, Le Perray, near Rambouillet, Fr.

\n

also called CHARLES OF VALOIS, count of Valois from 1285 and of Anjou and Maine from 1290. He was son of a king, brother of a king, uncle of three kings, and a father of a king. Though he himself never gained a crown, he sought at various times those of Aragon, France, Constantinople, and the Holy Roman Empire.

\n

In 1285 Charles received the Valois countship from his father, Philip III of France, and in 1290 the countships of Anjou and Maine by his marriage to Margaret, daughter of Charles II of Naples; to these were added in 1291 and 1293 the countships of Alençon and Chartres, granted by his brother, Philip IV, in compensation for their father's failure to win the crown of Aragon for Charles by a so-called crusade in 1285.

\n

In 1301 Charles, regarding Italy as a stepping-stone toward his eastern ambitions, readily accepted Pope Boniface VIII's invitation to aid the papal cause. After subduing Florence for the pope, Charles led an unsuccessful military campaign into Sicily before he was recalled by his brother, Philip IV, to France. In 1308 he vainly sought the title of Holy Roman emperor to ensure additional French control over Italy and the papal possessions.

\n

As chief councillor during the reign of his nephew Louis X, Charles brought about the fall of the famous financial adviser Enguerrand de Marigny. After Louis's death in June 1316, Charles desired the throne, but he gave way to another nephew, Philip V, who died in 1322. Charles had considerable influence with his nephew Charles IV, the new king, and was sent by him on a successful campaign into Guyenne in 1324. He had previously commanded French armies in Guyenne in 1295 and led them in Flanders in 1297, 1299, 1300, 1303, and 1314. His son, Philip VI (king from 1328 to 1350), was the first of the Valois line.

\n

"Moyennement intelligent, démesurément ambitieux et passablement avide, Charles de Valois collectionne les principautés".

\n

Dixit wapedia!

\n

Et pas seulement les principautés! Par sa seconde épouse Catherine de Courtenay il fut aussi, au moins théoriquement, empereur de Constantinople et, par sa mère roi "titulaire" d'Aragon (il n'arriva cependant pas à sa faire "titulariser"!).

\n

Mais son frère Philippe (le Bel) appréciait ses talents militaires.

\n

On trouve aussi mention d'un décès à Nogent le Roi.

\n

Remember: this is just assumptions based on clues and overlaps.

\n

We saw Charles will remain "pending" five years, until his brother the King wash the insult and may result in the case of Aragon. Charles, bruised, consoled himself with Helene de Brossard, his childhood sweetheart whom he had probably three children: Margaret, Anthony and Jeanne.

\n

This union illegal, some have argued that there was a secret marriage but I do not believe it was always known and tolerated by Philip the Fair in the light of the difficult situation of his brother. However, the king prudrerie associated with the omnipotence of the Church and its "moral" (see the Tour de Nesle more later) suggest that there were severe conditions.

\n

Philip the Fair banned Helen seemed likely that the Court about this liaisont should be taboo. It is also likely that the King demanded that Helen and her children are installed discreetly in a neutral and why not, for example in this small Hotel that Charles had acquired in 1285 in St Ouen ...

\n

His first daughter Margaret, born about 1286, was perhaps named by Charles in memory of his grandmother Margaret Provenceépouse of St. Louis. Marguerite de Brossard in 1300 married William Beaumont Glenay of a large family and she had descendants.

\n

Antoine was born about 1289 can be named by Helena in tribute to his father, was placed Escuyer to the Countess of Ponthieu and married Judith de Ponthieu he had a son that he will appoint Charles in honor of Charles de Valois ... and Brossard had the descendants of today.

\n

Jeanne finally, the last born in 1290, close to the marriage of Charles, I did not find its mark, may be she did not survive or she chose the convent
