Jeanne de Bourgogne (Joan or Joanna of Burgundy), (born circa 1293-1294, died 12 December 1349), was the daughter of Robert II, Duc de Bourgogne and his wife, Agnes (Capet) of France, the youngest daughter of (St) Louis IX, Roi de France and Marguerite de Provence. Jeanne was known as 'la Boiteuse (the Lame)' and was Queen (Reine) consort de France, as the wife of Philippe VI de Valois, Roi de France, from 1328 until her death.
There appears to be no reliable sources that state that Jeanne was born on 24 June 1293 as stated in her biography on the English version of Wikipedia, nor that that she was born at Besancon. There are some current resources that have her birthdate as about 1293 to 1294 but again there doesn't seem to be any medieval sources that confirm this time period. However she was named in her father's will dated 25 March 1298 and obviously must have been born before that date.
Jeanne inherited the domains of Courtenay and Chantecoq, and Biervliet and Blaton and was confirmed in these before King Philippe IV at Fontainebleu in July 1313.
The end of July 1313 was also when she married at Fontainebleau, Philippe de Valois, the future Philippe VI, Roi de France, the eldest son of Charles (Capet), Duc de Valois, and his first wife Marguerite d'Anjou. They had been betrothed by treaty at Sens (Yonne) on 24 March 1303.
They had the following children:
Jeanne was crowned with her husband at Notre Dame le Reims, 29 May 1328, and she was named as Regent of France in August 1338, when Philippe was fighting in what was to be the begining of the 100 years war.
