Historical background


FLANDERS - COUNTY OF FLANDERS - LOUIS II OF MALE

(1346-1384)

Louis de Male, son of Louis, Count of Flanders killed at the battle of Crécy (1346), will try to maintain a policy of strict neutrality between the King of France and that of England. In 1382, he became Count of Burgundy. Without a male heir, he married his daughter Margaret to Philip the Bold, son of John the Good, captured with his father at the battle of Poitiers in 1356 "Father keep you right, father keep you left." On the death of Louis de Male, Philip the Bold succeeded him, causing the great Burgundian domain.
