From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 (Redirected from Yolande de Bar)

Yolande de Bar (2 November 1428 - 23 March 1483) was Duchess of Lorraine (1473) and Bar (1480). She was the daughter of Isabella, Duchess of Lorraine, and René of Anjou (King of Naples, Duke of Anjou, Bar and Lorraine, Count of Provence). Because of her various titles she is also known as Yolande de Lorraine and Yolande d'Anjou. Her younger sister was Margaret of Anjou, Queen consort of Henry VI of England.

In 1445 she married her cousin Ferry II of Lorraine (1420 - 1470), Count Vaudémont, at Nancy. The marriage was a dynastic alliance, arranged to end the dispute which existed between René of Anjou and Ferry's father, Antoine of Vaudémont, regarding the succession to the Duchy of Lorraine.

Their children were:

René II (1451 - 1508), Duke of Lorraine. On 1 September 1485 he married secondly, Phillipa of Guelders. Had issue, from whom descended Mary, Queen of Scots

[edit]Legacy

In 1473, on the death of her nephew Nicolas, she inherited the Duchy of Lorraine, but passed it immediately to her son René II. In 1480, after the death of her father, she did the same with the Duchy of Bar. She died on 23 March 1483 at the age of 54.

In conspiracy theories, such as the one promoted in The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, Yolande de Bar was alleged to have been the tenth Grand Master of the Priory of Sion. -------------------- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yolande_of_Anjou Yolande, Duchess of Lorraine From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
