Historical background


COUNTY OF HOLLAND - PHILIPPE LE BEAU

(1482-1506)

Philip (1478-1506), Duke of Burgundy, had inherited from Flanders by his mother Mary of Burgundy, who died in 1482. His father, Maximilian of Austria, administered his possessions until 1494. L'Artois and Franche-Comté were restored in 1493 to Maximilian because Charles VIII had not married his daughter Marguerite, but Anne of Brittany. Philip married Jeanne la Folle (1479-1555), the daughter of the Catholic kings Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon, in 1496. From this union, was born Charles V in 1500 and Ferdinand I in 1503. Philip became King of Spain in 1504, but died in 1506. Jeanne the "Mad," says the story, earned her nickname. The deadliest enemy of France, Charles V, was going to grow on "an Empire where the sun never sets".
