About Bonne d'Artois

Bonne of Artois (1396–17 September 1425, Dijon) was the daughter of Philip of Artois, Count of Eu and Marie, Duchess of Auvergne.


She was a sister of Charles of Artois, Count of Eu and Catherine of Artois. Her paternal grandparents were John of Artois, Count of Eu and Isabeau of Melun. Her maternal grandparents were John, Duke of Berry and Joanna of Armagnic.

John son of John II of France and his first wife Bonne of Bohemia. Bonne was daughter of John of Bohemia and Elisabeth of Bohemia (1292–1330). Elisabeth was daughter of Wenceslaus II of Bohemia and his first wife Judith of Habsburg.


She married first at Beaumont-en-Artois on 20 June 1413, to Philip II, Count of Nevers. He was son of Philip the Bold and Margaret III, Countess of Flanders. The couple had two sons:

Charles, Count of Nevers
John II, Count of Nevers

Philip was killed at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, against the English king Henry V, who won the battle against Charles d'Albret and Charles VI of France.

Their eldest son Charles succeeded as Count of Nevers. However, due to the child's minority, Bonne acted as regent from 1415 until 1424.[1] She succeeded her aunt Jeanne d'Artois as Mademoiselle de Dreux as Dame de Houdain.

After Philp's death, Bonne married at Moulins-les-Engelbert on 30 November 1424, to Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy (the nephew of her first husband). Philip was childless, his first marriage to Michelle of Valois, had produced no surviving issue and had died young so Philip married Bonne.

Bonne is sometimes confused with Philip's biological aunt, also named Bonne (sister of John the Fearless, lived 1379–1399), in part due to the Papal Dispensation required for the marriage which made no distinction between a marital aunt and a biological aunt.

The marriage of Bonne and Philip lasted little over a year and produced no surviving children. Bonne died 17 September 1425 in Dijon in childbirth. Still without surviving children, Philip married Isabella of Portugal and had three sons, among them was Charles the Bold.
