About François de Bourbon, comte de Vendôme

François of Bourbon-La Marche (François I, Count of Vendôme) (1470 – 30 October 1495) was a French nobleman.

He was the son of Jean VIII, Count of Vendôme and Isabelle de Beauveau.[1] At his father's death when he was 7, he became Count of Vendôme. During his minority, his estates were administered by his uncle Louis le Joyeuse.

In 1484, he received the Barony of Mondoubleau, which was incorporated into the County of Vendôme. He was a faithful follower of Anne de Beaujeu and King Charles VIII of France.

In 1487, he married Marie de Luxembourg,[2] the widow of Jacques, Duke of Savoy, comte de Romont. She brought great estates as her dowry, including the counties of Saint Pol and Soissons in Picardy.

François de Bourbon (1470-1495), comte de Vendôme (1477-1495), fils de Jean VIII et d'Isabelle de Beauvau.

Âgé de sept ans à la mort de son père, il fut placé sous la tutelle de son beau-frère Louis de Joyeuse. En 1484, le roi Charles VIII, par ordonnance royale, fit directement dépendre Vendôme de la Couronne, le soustrayant de la vassalité de l'Anjou, qui venait d'ailleurs d'être réuni à la Couronne. François de Bourbon accompagna le roi dans les guerres d'Italie et, par sa valeur et sa prudence, contribua à la victoire de Fornoue (1495), mais le comte mourut peu après à Verceil en Italie le 30 octobre 1495 à l'âge de 25 ans.

De son épouse Marie de Luxembourg, comtesse de Saint-Pol, il eut :

Charles, comte puis duc de Vendôme et duc de Bourbon

François, comte de Saint-Pol et comte d'Estouteville

Louis, qui devint cardinal

Antoinette, mariée à Claude de Lorraine, duc de Guise

Louise, abbesse de Fontevrault
