LORRAINE - DUCHÉ BAR - ROBERT
Robert (1344-1411) was the second son of Henry IV of Bar (1336-1344) and Yolande de Flandre. Yolande is regent for Edward II (1344-1352) until 1348/9. After the death of Edward II, Robert succeeded him under the regency of his mother until 1354 or 1355. First Earl of 1352-1354, and Duke, as the county is a duchy October 17, 1354, Robert is also Marquis of Pont-à-Mousson from 1354. Robert married in 1364 Marie de France (1344-1404), daughter of Jean-le-Bon and Judith of Bavaria, which did not prevent the Duke continue to imitate the coinage of his stepfather. The Duke of Bar, like its predecessors, fought against the Duke of Lorraine and Bishop of Metz. Taken prisoner in 1368, he had to pay a ransom of 140,000 gold florins. In 1399, Robert gave the Marquis of Pont-à-Mousson to his son Edward, who succeeded him under the name of Edward III (1411-1415). Nearly a million coins were minted between 20 February 1371 and 23 December 1372 which very few copies have survived.
