Marriage

In 1385, at Cambrai, she married John, Count of Nevers, the son and heir of Philip the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, and Margaret of Dampierre, Countess of Flanders, Artois and Burgundy. With the death of Philip the Bold in 1404, and Margaret of Dampierre in 1405, John inherited these territories, and Margaret became his consort. They had only one son, Philip the Good (1396–1467), who inherited these territories, and seven daughters.

At the same time as Margaret's marriage, her brother, William IV, Count of Hainaut, married Marguerite of Burgundy, daughter of Philip the Bold and Margaret of Dampierre. Marguerite and William produced only one child, Jacqueline, who was designated heiress of Holland, Hainaut, Zeeland and Friesia (which he had by that time inherited from Albert, the father of himself and Margaret); however, her right to inherit was disputed, and eventually Margaret's son by John the Fearless, Philip the Good, seized Jacqueline's possessions by right of his descent, through Margaret, from Albert of Bavaria-Straubing.
