Philip V (1292/93 – 3 January 1322), called the Tall ( _fr. le Long), was King of France and Navarre (as Philip II) and Count of Champagne from 1316 to his death, and the second to last of the House of Capet.

He was born in Lyon, the second son of King Philip IV and Jeanne of Navarre. Philip V became regent for his infant nephew King John I, and when John lived only a few days, he proclaimed himself king. There was much speculation that Philip was responsible for the infant king's demise.

Before his accession to the throne, he held the title of Count of Poitou.

In 1307 he was married to Jeanne II, Countess of Burgundy (daughter and heiress of Otto IV, count of Burgundy) and they had five daughters and two sons:
# Joan (1308 - 1349). Countess of Burgundy and Artois in her own right and consort of Eudes IV, Duke of Burgundy. The County and Duchy of Burgundy were united due to their marriage.
# Marguerite (1310 - 1382). Consort of Louis I of Flanders. Countess of Burgundy and Artois in her own right.
# Isabelle (c. 1312 - April, 1348). Consort to Guigues VIII de La Tour du Pin, Dauphin de Viennois.
# Blanche of France, 1313-1358, died unmarried and childless.
# Philip, 1313-1317.
# Louis, who lived 1316-1317
# A daughter, 1322.

In 1320, Philip managed to expand his territory through war at the expense of Flanders.

On domestic matters, Philip attempted to institute government reforms and worked to standardize weights and measures. He followed in the steps of his father, Philip IV, and revoked many of the decisions of his predecessor and older brother, Louis X, who had been widely influenced by his uncle, Charles of Valois, and had left the kingdom in a poor state. Philip also restored the goods and dignity of many of his father's closest dignitaries and collaborators who had been despoiled under Louis X.

Philip V died at Longchamp, Paris and is interred in Saint Denis Basilica.

Without a male heir, he was succeeded by his younger brother, Charles IV.
