About Agnes Gaston

Note by Eugene Thomas 8/29/2017:

Felipe Iii 'el Piadoso' Von Habsburg-Burgund attempting to make Agnes's father as this individual is not correct. He lived and died in Spain.

This link provides the erroneous data that Agnes was born Navarre. The story was taken from genealogy in an earlier period of time.!topic/soc.genealogy.medieval/TjHGCzIfpak

Ines de Navarre, daughter of Philippe of Navarre (count of Evreux, king of Navarre), married Gaston Pheobus (1331-1391), count of Foix, in 1349; they became estranged after some years and she returned to live with her brother, then king of Navarre, and died in 1396. Their only son, Gaston de Foix, viscount of Bearn, was imprisoned and (accidentally, it is said) killed by his own father in 1381, as a result of an intrigue between Navarre and Foix; you can read about it in Jean Froissart's _Chronicles_, in the Penguin abridgement and translation, pp. 263-274. This younger Gaston was married but purportedly died childless. They are in Schwennicke's Europaische Stammtafeln 3:146.


They were Heugonots; French version of protestant reformed Christians. She and her husband, Jean John Gaston, fled Catholic persecution in France to Scotland. "They called her 'the witch'(!)

I have not been able to find any evidence of a von Habsburg connection to Agnes. Without evidence the claim is essentially fictional or myth rather than history.
