Facts and Events
Joan I of Auvergne (8 May 1326 – 29 September 1360, Chateau d'Argilly) was the daughter of William XII, Count of Auvergne and Boulogne, by his wife, Margaret, a sister of Philip III of Navarre. She was Queen of France by her marriage to King John II. She inherited the counties of Auvergne and Boulogne after the death of her father.
Her first husband was Philip of Burgundy, who held the title Count of Auvergne by virtue of their marriage. They had one surviving child, Philip, who would be for much of his brief life Duke of Burgundy (by inheriting the title from his grandfather).
Following the death of her husband, Joan married John II of France on 13 February 1349; she became Queen consort of France in the following year. This was a second marriage for them both, John's first wife, Bonne of Bohemia, had died of Black Death and had left John with eight children, so there was little pressure for Joan to give birth to a son and heir. Joan's son, Philip became a ward of the King. She bore her second husband three children, two girls and a unnamed son, all of the children died young. Joan died in 1360. Her possessions were inherited by her son.
