Philippe V de France, Philippe le Long (the Tall), born circa 1292/1293, died 2-3 January 1322 at Longchamp (Paris), Regent of France (June-December 1316), then roi de France (King of France) 1316 to 1322, the second last King of the direct Capetian dynasty. Also King of Navarre as Felipe II.
Philippe was born about 1292 or 1293, the second son of Philippe IV 'le Bel', roi de France and his wife Juana (Jeanne), Queen of Navarre. He was recognised as Comte palatin de Bourgogne and Sire de Salins, through the rights of his wife in a treaty dated 26 June 1310 and was granted the title and lands of Comte de Poitiers for himself and his heirs in December 1311.
Philippe's elder brother Louis X died on 5 June 1316, leaving a four year old daughter Jeanne from his first marriage to Marguerite de Bourgogne, and his second wife Klemencia (Clemence) d'Anjou, Princess of Hungary was pregnant. After some opposition, Philippe was created Regent of both France and Navarre from 16 July 1316 and continued as such after the birth of his nephew Jean on 14 November 1316. Jean died after only five days and Philippe took the initiative and was annointed and crowned King (roi de France) on 6 January 1317 at Cathedral of Notre Dame, at Rheims by Archbishop Robert de Courtenay.
There was still some doubt about the legalities of his actions, particularly in overturning the rights of his niece Jeanne, and on 2 Februrary 1317 Philippe assembled at Paris, many nobles, churchmen and some bourgeois as well as the doctors from the University to make a judgement. On 3 February this assembly proclaimed what was to become the Salic Law, that 'a woman does not succeed to the throne of France' (femme ne succede pas au royaume de France).
Philippe married Jeanne de Bourgogne, later comtesse palatin de Bourgogne as Jeanne II, and comtesse d'Artois, as Jeanne I. She was the elder daughter of Othon (Otto) IV de Chalon, comte palatin de Bourgogne, and his second wife, Mahaut (Mathilde) d'Artois, comtesse d'Artois. She was born sometime between 1291-1294 and definitely before 2 March 1294/95 when a marriage contract was signed at Vincennes (Val-de-Marne). Their marriage was then celebrated at Corbeil (Marne) in January 1306/07.
In Spring of 1314, Jeanne was charged with adultery along with her sister Blanche, the wife of her brother-in-law Charles (IV) of France, and her sister-in-law, Marguerite de Bourgogne, wife of Louis (X), in what is known as the Tour de Nesle Affair. Although both Marguerite and Blanche were found guilty, Jeanne was proven innocent, largely through the efforts of her husband, and returned to him about Christmas 2014.
Philippe and Jeanne were definitely the parents of the following five children;
Although there is every reason to suppose that Philippe and Jeanne might have had additional children, particularly during the periods 1312-1315 and 1317-1322, the following are disputed;
Philippe had been suffering from dysentery for a number of months and died at Longchamps the night of the 2-3 January 1322. He was buried at Abbaye royale de St Denis.
