Historical background



Philippe was born in 1165. He is the only son of Louis VII the Younger and his third wife Adèle de Champagne. King at 15, he first had to face his turbulent neighbours, the Counts of Champagne and Flanders and the Duke of Burgundy, a conflict which ended with the Treaty of Boves in 1185. He acquired Vermandois and Amiens, married in 1180 Isabelle de Hainaut (+1190), niece of the count of Flanders, Philippe d'Alsace, and received the county of Artois (Arras) as a dowry from his wife, from whom he had the future Louis VIII, born in 1187. That year , he supported Richard the Lionheart against Henry II (1187-1189). Party in Crusade with Richard and Frederic Ier Barberousse, he gives up after the capture of Richard in Austria. Back in France, he invaded Normandy, but was defeated. After the death of Richard, he fights his brother Jean-sans-Terre (1199-1216). After the assassination of Arthur of Brittany, he confiscated all of Jean's French fiefdoms in 1204 (Normandy, Touraine, Anjou and Poitou) and crushed a coalition at Bouvines in 1214. Entangled in marital disputes, he was excommunicated in 1199 and does not take part in the crusade against the Albigenses. He died in 1223.
