Archambaud VII opened up again the problem of succession since he died in Cyprus, while participating in a Crusade, and left two daughters who had both married one of the two sons of the Duke of Burgundy. His titles went first to Matilda II (1249-1262), and then to her sister Agnes (1262-1288). At that point the event destined to change the future of the Bourbon family occurred. Agnes's daughter, Beatrice (1277-1310) married Robert of Clermont, sixth son of St. Louis IX, King of France.
In this way the princely branch of the Bourbon family found its origin, since they had now married into the main branch of the Capetians, Kings of France, and therefore direct descendants of St. Louis IX and Charlemagne (from whom they inherited the symbol of the French fleur-de-lis).
