Robert II, Duke of Burgundy


Robert II, Duke of Burgundy

Robert II of Burgundy (1248 – March 21 1306) was duke of Burgundy between 1271 and 1306, inheriting the title from his brother Eudes of Burgundy, who had no male heirs. Robert was the third son of duke Hugh IV and Yolande of Dreux. Robert married princess Agnes of France, youngest daughter of king Louis IX in 1279 and had the following issue:

*Hugh V, Duke of Burgundy (1282–1315)
*Blanche (1288–1348), married Edward of Savoy
*Marguerite (1290- 1315), married king Louis X of France
*Joan (Jeanne) (ca.1290–1348), married count of Maine and Valois, king Philip VI of France
*Eudes IV, Duke of Burgundy (1295–1350)
*Louis, King of Thessalonica (1297–1316), married Matilda of Hainaut
*Mary (1298–1336) married Edward I of Bar
*Robert, count of Tonnerre (1302–1334), married Joanna, heiress of Tonnerre

Robert ended the practice of giving away parts of the Burgundian estate to younger sons and as dowries to the daughters. From then on, the whole duchy, however already diminished by earlier dowries, passed unfragmented to the eldest son.
