Joanna of Bourbon

Joanna of Bourbon

Joanna of Bourbon ( _fr. Jeanne de Bourbon; Vincennes, February 3, 1338 – Paris, February 6, 1378) was consort to Charles V of France. Joanna was a daughter of Peter I, Duke of Bourbon and Isabella of Valois, a half-sister of Philip VI of France as the daughter of Charles of Valois and his third wife Mahaut of Chatillon.


Her father, grandfather, and brother were all somewhat mentally unstable, and Joanna seems to have inherited this family ailment. She suffered a complete nervous breakdown after the birth of her seventh child. Her eldest surviving son, Charles VI, was famous for his insanity. From her marriage to Charles V of France (1350, Tain-en-Viennois) were born nine children:


# Jeanne (1357–1360)
# Jean (1359–1364)
# Bonne (1360)
# Jean (1366)
# Charles VI of France (1368–1422)
# Marie (1370–1377)
# Louis of Valois, Duke of Orléans (1372–1407)
# Isabelle (1373–1378)
# Catherine (1378–1388)

Death and burial

Joanna died February 6, 1378, three days after her fortieth birthday. Her heart was buried in the convent of the Cordeliers and her entrails in the Church of the Celestines in Paris. The rest of her remains were then placed in the Basilique Saint-Denis.
