About Jeanne I, Queen of Navarre

Joan I de Navarre, also known as Joanna or Joan of Navarre (c. 14 January 1271 – April 4, 1305), Queen regnant of Navarre and Queen consort of France, was the daughter of king Henry I of Navarre and Blanche of Artois.

In 1274, upon the death of her father, she became Countess of Champagne and Queen regnant of Navarre. Her mother Queen Blanche was her guardian and Regent in Navarre. Various powers, both foreign and Navarrese, sought to take advantage of the minority of the heiress and the "weakness" of the female regent, which caused Jeanne and her mother to seek protection at the court of Philip III of France.

At the age of 13, Jeanne married the future Philip IV of France on August 16, 1284, becoming Queen of France a year later. Queen Jeanne founded the famous College of Navarre in Paris. She died in childbirth in 1305. The crowns of Navarre and France were henceforth united for almost half a century. Their children were:

Marguerite (1288–c.1294)

Louis X of France, King Louis I of Navarre from 1305, France from 1314 (October, 1289 – June 5, 1316)

Blanche (1290–c.1294)

Philip V of France and Navarre (as Philip II) (1292/93 – January 3, 1322)

Charles IV of France and Navarre (as Charles I) (c.1294 – February 1, 1328)

Isabelle (c.1295 – August 23, 1358), married Edward II of England

Robert (1297 – July 1308)

Their three surviving sons would all become Kings of France, in turn, and their only surviving daughter Queen consort of England.

Jeanne led an army against the Count de Bar when he rebelled against her.

Jeanne died under mysterious circumstances; one chronicler even accused her husband of having killed her. Her personal physician was the inventor Guido da Vigevano.


Joan I (also known as Joanna I; 14 January 1271 – 4 April 1305), the daughter of king Henry I of Navarre and Blanche of Artois, reigned as queen regnant of Navarre and also served as queen consort of France.

Joan led an army against the Count of Bar when he rebelled against her.

Joan died in 1305 in childbirth, though one chronicler even accused her husband of having killed her. Her personal physician was the inventor Guido da Vigevano.

byname JOAN OF NAVARRE, French JEANNE DE NAVARRE, queen consort of France (from 1285) and queen of Navarre (as Joan I, from 1274), mother of three French kings--Louis X, Philip V, and Charles IV.

Joan was the sole daughter and heir of Henry I, king of Navarre, her brother Theobald (Thibaut) having died at an early age. She married (Aug. 16, 1284) the future Philip IV the Fair of France, thus bringing to the French crown her rights to Navarre and the countships of Champagne and Brie. On her death in childbirth in 1305 these rights were transmitted to her son, the future Louis X. Joan was a woman of great intelligence and vivacity, a lover of arts and letters who founded the famous college of Navarre.

Various powers, both foreign and Navarrese, sought to take advantage of the minority of the heiress and the "weakness" of the female regent, which caused Joan and her mother to seek protection at the court of Philip III of France. Her mother arrived in France in 1274, and by the Treaty of Orléans in 1275, Joan was betrothed to one of Philip's sons (Louis or Philip).[4] Blanche therefore placed her daughter and the government of Navarre under the protection of the King of France. After this, Joan was brought up with Philip. It is, in fact, uncertain whether she ever resided in Navarre during her childhood.[2] Queen of France[edit] At the age of 11, Joan married the future Philip IV of France on 16 August 1284, becoming queen consort of France in 1285 a year later. Their three surviving sons would all rule as kings of France, in turn, and their only surviving daughter, Isabella became queen consort of England. Joan was described as having been plump and plain, whereas her beautiful daughter Isabella resembled her father more in physical appearance. As regards her character, Joan was bold, courageous, and enterprising. Joan was described as a success in her role of Queen of France: she secured the succession, she was an efficient mistress of the royal court, a dignified first lady and had a very good relationship with the King. Having grown up together, the couple was evidently close to each other and Philip is reported to have loved and respected her deeply.[5] His emotional dependence on her is suggested as a reason to why she never visited Navarre. In 1294, Philip appointed her regent of France should his son succeed him being still a minor.[6] However, he is not believed to have entrusted her with influence over the affairs of France, unless they concerned her own domains Navarre and Champagne.[6] Queen Joan founded the famous College of Navarre in Paris in 1305.[citation needed] Queen of Navarre and Countess of Champagne[edit]

Funeral of Queen Joan I Queen Joan I of Navarre and countess of Champagne and Brie was declared to be of legal majority upon her marriage in 1284, and did homage for Champagne and Brie to her father-in-law in Paris.[7] Joan never visited the Kingdom of Navarre, which was ruled in her name by French governors appointed first by her father-in-law and then by her spouse in her name.[2] The French governors were extremely unpopular in Navarre and her absence from the country was resented:[8] however, it was the French who were blamed for her absence rather than her, and the loyalty to her right to rule was not questioned; rather, it was emphasized in Navarre that it was in fact she rather than the French who was their sovereign. From afar, edicts were issued in her name, coins struck in her image,[8] and she gave her protection to chapels and convents. She never came closer to Navarre than to Carcasonne in 1300, and her spouse was somewhat blamed for this.[5] Joan was much more directly active as countess of Champagne. While being a county rather than a kingdom, Champagne was much richer and more strategically important. Philip IV appointed her administrators, however, Joan visited Champagne regularly and is recorded to have participated in all duties of a ruling vassal and is not regarded to have been passive but an active independent ruler in this domain. In 1297, she raised and led an army against the Count of Bar when he rebelled against her by invading Champagne.[9] This was explicitly in the absence of her spouse, and she personally brought the count to prison before she joined her spouse.[9] She also personally acted in her process against Bishop Guichard of Troyes, whom she accused of having stolen funds from Champagne and her mother by fraud.[9] Joan died in 1305, allegedly in childbirth, though one chronicler accused her husband of having killed her. Her personal physician was the inventor Guido da Vigevano.
