French

De son mariage avec Guillaume Ier d'Avesnes, comte de Hainaut et Hollande, elle eut sept enfants, dont Marguerite, qui épousa l'empereur Louis IV, et Philippa, qui épousa Edouard III d'Angleterre.

Veuve en 1337, elle se retira à Fontenelle * avec sa fille Isabelle de Namur, mais sortit de cette retraite pour apaiser le conflit entre la France et l'Angleterre que l'on appellera plus tard "guerre de cent ans". De fait elle fut à l'origine de la trêve dite de Tournai, plusieurs fois reconduite, et c'est gràce à elle que le Hainaut fut épargné dans la suite du conflit.

Après la redécouverte de son caveau à Fontenelle elle fut réinhumée en l'église voisine de Maing

  • A proximité de Valenciennes et de Maing. Ne pas confondre avec L'Abbaye de Fontenelle située à mi-chemin entre Rouen et le Havre, et plus connue aujourd'hui sous son nom d'abbaye de Saint Wandrille.

[edit] LineageHer paternal grandparents were Philip III of France and Isabella of Aragon. Her maternal grandparents were Charles II of Naples and Maria Arpad of Hungary. Joan was one of six children. In 1299, Joan's mother died, probably in childbirth and her father married his second wife, Catherine I of Courtenay, Titular Empress of Constantinople (1274–1308, by whom he had four more children. He would marry his third wife Mahaut of Châtillon in 1308 and by her he would sire a son and three daughters, among them were Isabella of Valois, who became Duchess of Bourbon and Blanche of Valois, who married Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor.

[edit] Countess of HainautJoan married William III, Count of Holland and Hainaut on 23 May 1305. She was a supporter of her cousin Isabella of France in her struggle against Edward II. This brought about an alliance between Hainaut and Isabella and the English exiles, who were in opposition to the English king and his favorite, Hugh Despenser the Younger. Isabella's son got engaged to Joan's daughter Philippa and Isabella raised an army in their lands. It was also from there that Isabella and her lover Roger Mortimer began their invasion of England.[1]

In 1332, after Philippa had become queen, she arranged the wedding between Isabella's daughter Eleanor with Reginald II, Duke of Guelders and she visited her daughter Philippa in England.[2]

[edit] MediatorAfter her husband died in 1337, she took the veil and became abbess of Fontenelle Abbey. In 1340, her son-in-law dealt her brother Philip a heavy blow by defeating him at sea near Sluys. Edward then went on to besiege Tournai, but was beset by financial problems. Pope Benedict XII then asked Joan to mediate. She first went to her brother, whom she had begged for peace. Then she went to Edward in his tent and begged him for peace as well. The pleas of their relative Joan, sent by the pope, allowed the two men to sign a truce without loss of face.[3]
