Louis II , Duke of Bourbon
m. 25 Jan 1336
Facts and Events
Duke Louis is reported to have been somewhat mentally unstable, specifically having a trait of nervous breakdowns which is presumably hereditary; this trait was also evidenced in his sister Joanna of Bourbon (the wife of French King Charles V), his nephew Charles VI of France (called "The Mad"), his Duke Peter, and his grandfather Louis I, Duke of Bourbon.
In 1390, Duke Louis launched a crusade against the Hafsids of Tunis, in conjunction with the Genoese. Its objective was to suppress piracy based in the city of Mahdia, but the siege was unsuccessful. Duke Louis died at Montlucon in 1410, at the age of 72 or 73.
