About Philippe d'Artois, comte d'Eu,_Count_of_Eu

Philip of Artois (1358 – June 16, 1397, Micalizo), son of John of Artois, Count of Eu and Isabeau of Melun, was Count of Eu from 1387 until his death, succeeding his brother Robert.

Philip was a gallant and energetic soldier. In 1383, he captured the town of Bourbourg from the English. He went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, and was imprisoned there by the Sultan of Egypt, being released through the mediation of Jean Boucicaut and the Venetians. In 1390, he joined the unsuccessful expedition of Louis II, Duke of Bourbon against Mahdia. In 1392, he was created Constable of France.

On January 27, 1393, he married Marie (1367–1434), daughter of John, Duke of Berry. They had four children:

Charles of Artois, Count of Eu, captured at Agincourt (1394–1472)
Philip (1395 – December 23, 1397, Eu)
Bonne of Artois (1396 – September 17, 1425, Dijon), married at Beaumont-en-Artois on June 20, 1413 Philip II, Count of Nevers, and afterwards at Moulins-les-Engelbert on November 30, 1424 Philip III, Duke of Burgundy
Catherine (1397–1418/22), married c. 1416 John of Bourbon, Lord of Carency

As a prominent Crusader, he was one of the French contingent sent to take part in the Battle of Nicopolis. He was captured in the battle, and subsequently died in captivity.
