Nicholas I, Duke of Lorraine


Nicholas I, Duke of Lorraine

Nicholas of Anjou (Nancy, 1448 – 1473 in Nancy) was the son of John II, Duke of Lorraine and Marie de Bourbon.

He succeeded his father in 1470 as Duke of Lorraine, and assumed the titles of Marquis of Pont-à-Mousson, Duke of Calabria, and Prince of Girona, as heir apparent of Bar, Naples, and Aragon respectively.

He did not marry and had only one illegitimate daughter, Marguerite, who married John IV of Chabannes, Count of Dammartin (d. 1503). However, he was engaged to Anne of France, Viscountess of Thouars, and used her title.

Some said he had been poisoned by agents of Louis XI King of France.

On his death, the Duchy of Lorraine went to his cousin René.
