Peter II, Duke of Brittany


Peter II, Duke of Brittany

Peter II (in breton Pêr II, in french Pierre II) (1418 – 1457, Nantes/ Naoned), was duke of Brittany, count of Montfort and titular earl of Richmond, from 1450 to his death. He was son of Duke John VI and Joan of France, and thus was younger brother of Francis I.

In 1442, he married Françoise d'Amboise (d. 1485), daughter of Louis d'Amboise, Viscount of Thouars and Prince of Talmond, but had no children.

He was succeeded by his uncle Arthur.
