Margaret of France (1254–1271) was a daughter of Louis IX of France and his wife Margaret of Provence. She was a member of the House of Capet and was Duchess of Brabant by her marriage to John I, Duke of Brabant.
Margaret was the ninth of eleven children. Her elder brother was Philip III of France, her younger brother was Robert, Count of Clermont. Marguerite also had other brothers, but they died in childhood or early adulthood.
Margaret had three surviving sisters. Her eldest sister was Isabelle of France, Queen of Navarre; she was married to King Theobald II of Navarre. Her two other sisters were: Blanche of France; married Ferdinand de la Cerda and Agnes of France, Duchess of Burgundy; she was married to Robert II, Duke of Burgundy and was mother of Joan the Lame.
Henry was deposed in 1267. Henry's brother, John I, Duke of Brabant married Margaret on September 5, 1270. John was said to be a perfect model of a feudal prince in the days of chivalry: brave, adventurous, excelling in every form of active exercise, fond of display, generous in temper. This made him very popular in Middle Ages poetry and literature. He was also famous for his many illegitimate children.
Margaret became pregnant in 1270/1271. Margaret gave birth to a son in 1271. Mother and baby did not survive and both died shortly after the birth.
