Facts and Events
- the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia
Louis of Évreux (May 3, 1276 – May 19, 1319, Paris) was a prince, the third son of King Philip III of France and his second wife Maria of Brabant, and thus a half-brother of King Philip IV of France.
Louis had a quiet and reflective personality and was politically opposed to the scheming of his half-brother Charles of Valois. He was however close with his nephew Philip V of France.
He married Margaret of Artois, daughter of Philip of Artois and sister of Robert III of Artois, and had five children:
- Marie (1303 – October 31, 1335), married in 1311 John III, Duke of Brabant
- Charles (1305–1336), Count of Étampes married Maria de la Cerda, Lady of Lunel, daughter of Fernando de la Cerda.
- Philip III of Navarre (1306–1343), married Joan II of Navarre.
- Margaret (1307–1350), married in 1325 William XII of Auvergne
- Joan (1310–1370), married Charles IV of France
