  • Biography*: Thomas Holland (also known as de Holland), 2nd Earl of Kent, 3rd Baron Holand KG (1350/1354 – 25 April 1397) was an English nobleman and a councillor of his half-brother, King Richard II of England.

    Family and early Life
    Thomas Holland (or de Holand) was born in Upholand, Lancashire in 1350 or 1354 (sources differ on his birth year). He was the eldest surviving son of Thomas Holland, 1st Earl of Kent and Joan "The Fair Maid of Kent". His mother was a daughter of Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent and Margaret Wake. Edmund was in turn a son of Edward I of England and his second Queen consort Marguerite of France, and thus a younger half-brother of Edward II of England.

    His father died in 1360, and later that year, on 28 December, Thomas became Baron Holand. His mother was still Countess of Kent in her own right.

    Military career
    At sixteen, in 1366, Holland was appointed captain of the English forces in Aquitaine. Over the next decade he fought in various campaigns, including the Battle of Nájera, under the command of his stepfather Edward, the Black Prince. He was made a Knight of the Garter in 1375.

    Richard II became king in 1377, and soon Holland acquired great influence over his younger half-brother, which he used for his own enrichment. In 1381, he actually succeeded as Earl of Kent.

    Later years and death
    Prior to his death, Holland was appointed Governor of Carisbrooke Castle. Holland died at Arundel Castle, Sussex, England on 25 April 1397.

    Marriage and issue
    Holland married Alice FitzAlan (daughter of Richard FitzAlan, 10th Earl of Arundel) on 10 April 1364. They had eight children:
    Alianore Holland (1373 – October 1405), married first Roger Mortimer, 4th Earl of March and second Edward Charleton, 5th Baron Cherleton
    Thomas Holland, 1st Duke of Surrey (1374 – 7 January 1400), who succeeded him
    Joan Holland (ca. 1380–12 April 1434), married Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York
    John Holland
    Edmund Holland, 4th Earl of Kent (6 January 1384 – 15 September 1408), had a child by Constance of York
    Margaret Holland (1385 – 31 December 1439), married first John Beaufort, 1st Earl of Somerset and second Thomas of Lancaster, 1st Duke of Clarence
    Elizabeth Holland, married Sir John Neville (eldest son of Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmoreland)
    Eleanor Holland (1386- after 1413) married Thomas Montacute, 4th Earl of Salisbury
    Bridget Holland, who became a nun

    Through the marriages of his daughters, he became the ancestor of many of the prominent figures in the Wars of the Roses, including Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York and Warwick the Kingmaker. He was also an ancestor of queen consort Catherine Parr, the sixth and final wife of King Henry VIII.3

  • Name Variation: Lady Alice (?) was also known as Alice Holland Countess of Kent.4
  • Birth*: She was born circa 1350 in Kent, England.1
  • Marriage*: She married Thomas de Holland 2nd Earl of Kent, son of Thomas de Holland 1st Earl of Kent KG and Joan of Kent 4th Countess of Kent, on 10 April 1364 in England.1,5
  • Biography*: Alice Holland, Countess of Kent (c. 1350– 17 March 1416), LG, formerly Lady Alice FitzAlan, was an English noblewoman, a daughter of the 10th Earl of Arundel, and the wife of the 2nd Earl of Kent, the half-brother of King Richard II. She was the maternal grandmother of Anne Mortimer, thus an ancestor of King Edward IV and King Richard III. Through her daughter, Margaret, King Henry VII was her descendant. She was also the maternal grandmother of Joan Beaufort, Queen of Scotland.

    She was appointed a Lady of the Garter in 1388.

    Family
    Lady Alice FitzAlan was born circa 1350 at Arundel Castle in Sussex, England, the second daughter of the 10th Earl of Arundel, and Lady Eleanor of Lancaster. She had six siblings who included Richard FitzAlan, later 11th Earl of Arundel, and Lady Joan FitzAlan, later Countess of Hereford, Essex, and Northampton. She also had three half-siblings from her parents' previous marriages.

    Her paternal grandparents were the 9th Earl of Arundel and Alice de Warenne, and her maternal grandparents were the 3rd Earl of Lancaster and Maud Chaworth.

    Marriage and issue
    In 1354, at the age of four, Lady Alice was betrothed to her father's ward Edmund Mortimer who would in 1360 become the 3rd Earl of March. The marriage however did not take place. Alice married instead on 10 April 1364, 2nd Earl of Kent, one of the half-brothers of the future King Richard II by his mother Joan of Kent's first marriage to Thomas Lord Holland. She received from her father a marriage portion of 4000 marks. Upon her marriage, she was styled Lady Holland. She did not, however, become Countess of Kent until 1381, when her husband succeeded his father as Thomas Holland, 2nd Earl of Kent.

    Lord Holland was appointed captain of the English forces in Aquitaine in 1366, and in 1375, he was made a Knight of the Garter. Two years later in 1377, his half-brother Richard succeeded to the throne of England, as King Richard II. Alice's husband would become one of the young King's chief counsellors and exert a strong influence over his brother which led to the enrichment of Thomas and Alice. Alice was appointed a Lady of the Garter, an order of chivalry, in 1388.

    Together Thomas and Alice had ten children:
    Alianore Holland (1373- October 1405), married firstly Roger Mortimer, 4th Earl of March, by whom she had issue, including Anne Mortimer and Edmund Mortimer, 5th Earl of March; she married secondly, Edward Charleton, 5th Baron Cherleton, by whom she had two daughters.
    Thomas Holland, 1st Duke of Surrey (1374- 7 January 1400), married Joan Stafford, but the marriage was childless.
    John Holland (died young)
    Richard Holland (died young)
    Elizabeth Holland (died 4 January 1423), married Sir John Neville, Lord Neville by whom she had issue.
    Joan Holland (1380- 12 April 1434), married firstly as his second wife, Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York; married secondly William de Willoughby, 5th Lord Willoughby de Eresby; married thirdly Henry le Scrope, 3rd Baron Scrope of Masham, her fourth husband was Henry Bromflete, 1st Lord Vessy. All her marriages were childless.
    Edmund Holland, 4th Earl of Kent (6 January 1384 – 15 September 1408), married Lucia Visconti (1372-14 April 1424), but the marriage was childless. He fathered an illegitimate daughter Eleanor de Holland (born 1406), by his mistress Constance of York.
    Margaret Holland (1385- 30 December 1439), married firstly John Beaufort, 1st Earl of Somerset, by whom she had issue including John Beaufort, 1st Duke of Somerset and Joan Beaufort, Queen of Scotland; she married secondly Thomas of Lancaster, 1st Duke of Clarence.
    Eleanor Holland (1386- after 1413), married Thomas Montacute, 4th Earl of Salisbury, by whom she had one daughter, Alice Montacute, 5th Countess of Salisbury.
    Bridget Holland (died before 1416), a nun at Barking Abbey.

    Later years
    Alice's husband died on 25 April 1397. In 1399, King Richard was deposed, and the throne was usurped by Henry IV, the son-in-law of her elder sister, Joan. In January 1400, Alice's eldest son Thomas, who had succeeded his father as the 3rd Earl of Kent, was captured at Cirencester and beheaded without a trial by a mob of angry citizens as a consequence of having been one of the chief conspirators in the Epiphany Rising. The rebels had hoped to seize and murder King Henry, and immediately restore King Richard to the throne. Less than three years earlier, her brother Richard Fitzalan, 11th Earl of Arundel and a Lord Appellant had been executed for his opposition to King Richard.
    Alice herself died on 17 March 1416 at the age of sixty-six years.

    Descendants
    Alice had many illustrious descendants which included English kings Edward IV, Richard III (and his consort Queen Anne), Henry VII; from the latter of whom descended the Tudor monarchs. Alice was also an ancestress of Scottish king James II of Scotland and his successors which included Mary, Queen of Scots and James I of England. Her other notable descendants include the last queen consort of Henry VIII, Catherine Parr; Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick known in history as Warwick the Kingmaker; Cecily Bonville, and Anne Bourchier, 7th Baroness Bourchier. Living descendants of Alice Fitzalan include the current British Royal Family.4

  • Birth*: Thomas de Holland 1st Earl of Kent KG was born circa 1314 in Upholland, Lancashire, England.1,2
  • Marriage*: He married Joan of Kent 4th Countess of Kent, daughter of Edmund of Woodstock 1st Earl of Kent and Margaret Wake 3rd Baroness Wake of Liddell, circa 1340 in England.1,2
  • Death*: Thomas de Holland 1st Earl of Kent KG died on 26 December 1360 in England.2
  • Biography*: Thomas Holland, 1st Earl of Kent, 1st Baron Holand, KG (c. 1314 – 26 December 1360) was an English nobleman and military commander during the Hundred Years' War.

    Early life
    He was from a gentry family in Upholland, Lancashire. He was a son of Robert de Holland, 1st Baron Holand and Maud la Zouche. One of his brothers was Otho Holand, who was also made a Knight of the Garter.

    Military career
    In his early military career, he fought in Flanders. He was engaged, in 1340, in the English expedition into Flanders and sent, two years later, with Sir John D'Artevelle to Bayonne, to defend the Gascon frontier against the French. In 1343, he was again on service in France. In 1346, he attended King Edward III into Normandy in the immediate retinue of the Earl of Warwick; and, at the taking of Caen, the Count of Eu and Guînes, Constable of France, and the Count De Tancarville surrendered themselves to him as prisoners. At the Battle of Crécy, he was one of the principal commanders in the vanguard under the Prince of Wales and he, afterwards, served at the Siege of Calais in 1346-7. In 1348 he was invested as one of the founders and 13th Knight of the new Order of the Garter.

    Around the same time as, or before, his first expedition, he secretly married the 12-year-old Joan of Kent, daughter of Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent and Margaret Wake, granddaughter of Edward I and Margaret of France. However, during his absence on foreign service, Joan, under pressure from her family, contracted another marriage with William Montacute, 2nd Earl of Salisbury (of whose household Holland had been seneschal). This second marriage was annulled in 1349, when Joan's previous marriage with Holland was proved to the satisfaction of the papal commissioners. Joan was ordered by the Pope to return to her husband and live with him as his lawful wife; this she did, thus producing 4 children by him.

    Between 1353 and 1356 he was summoned to Parliament as Baron de Holland.

    In 1354 Holland was the king's lieutenant in Brittany during the minority of the Duke of Brittany, and in 1359 co-captain-general for all the English continental possessions.

    His brother-in-law John, Earl of Kent, died in 1352, and Holland became Earl of Kent in right of his wife.

    He was succeeded as baron by his son Thomas, the earldom still being held by his wife (though the son later became Earl in his own right). Another son, John became Earl of Huntingdon and Duke of Exeter.

    Children
    Thomas and Joan of Kent had four children:
    Thomas Holland, 2nd Earl of Kent
    John Holland, 1st Duke of Exeter
    Joan Holland, who married John V, Duke of Brittany
    Maud Holland, married Waleran III of Luxembourg, Count of Ligny.2,3

  • Name Variation: Joan of Kent 4th Countess of Kent was also known as The Fair Maid of Kent.5
  • Birth*: She was born on 19 September 1328 in Kent, England.1,5
  • Marriage*: She married Thomas de Holland 1st Earl of Kent KG, son of Robert de Holland 1st Baron Holand and Maude La Zouche, circa 1340 in England.1,6
  • Burial*: Joan of Kent 4th Countess of Kent was buried in August 1385 in Greyfriars, Stamford, Lincolnshire, England.5
  • Death*: She died in August 1385 in Wallingford Castle, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, England, at age 56.5
  • Biography*: Princess Joan, LG, suo jure 4th Countess of Kent, 5th Baroness Wake of Liddell (19 September 1328 – 7 August 1385), known to history as The Fair Maid of Kent, was the first post-conquest Princess of Wales as wife to Edward, the Black Prince, son and heir of King Edward III. Although the French chronicler Jean Froissart called her "the most beautiful woman in all the realm of England, and the most loving", the appellation "Fair Maid of Kent" does not appear to be contemporary. Joan assumed the title of 4th Countess of Kent and 5th Baroness Wake of Liddell after the death of her brother, John, in 1352.

    Lineage
    Joan was the daughter of Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent, and Margaret Wake, 3rd Baroness Wake of Liddell. Her father Edmund was the son of King Edward I and his second wife, Margaret of France, daughter of Philip III of France. Edmund's support of his older half-brother, King Edward II of England, placed him in conflict with the queen, Isabella of France, and her lover Roger Mortimer, 1st Earl of March. Edmund was executed after Edward II's deposition, and Joan's mother, along with her children, was placed under house arrest in Arundel Castle when Joan was only two years old.

    Early life
    The Earl's widow, Margaret, was left with four children for whom to care. Joan's first cousin, the new King Edward III, took on the responsibility for the family, and looked after them well. His wife, Queen Philippa, was Joan's second cousin.

    Marriages
    In 1340, at the age of twelve, Joan entered into a clandestine marriage with Thomas Holland of Upholland, Lancashire without first gaining the royal consent necessary for couples of their rank. The following winter (1340 or 1341), while Holland was overseas, her family forced her to marry William Montacute, son and heir of the first Earl of Salisbury. Joan later averred that she did not disclose her existing marriage with Thomas Holland because she had been afraid that disclosing it would lead to Thomas's execution for treason upon his return. She may also have become convinced that the earlier marriage was invalid.

    Several years later, Thomas Holland returned from the Crusades, having made his fortune, and the full story of his earlier relationship with Joan came out. He appealed to the Pope for the return of his wife and confessed the secret marriage to the king. When the Earl of Salisbury discovered that Joan supported Holland’s case, he kept her a prisoner in her own home. In 1349, Pope Clement VI annulled Joan’s marriage to the Earl and sent her back to Thomas Holland, with whom she lived for the next eleven years.

    They had four known children (though some sources list five), before Holland died in 1360.
    Their children were:
    Thomas Holland, 2nd Earl of Kent
    John Holland, 1st Duke of Exeter
    Lady Joan Holland (1356–1384), who married John V, Duke of Brittany (1339–1399).
    Lady Maud Holland (1359–1391), who married firstly to Hugh Courtenay and secondly to Waleran III of Luxembourg, Count of Ligny (1355–1415).
    Edmund Holland (c. 1354), who died young. He was buried in the church of Austin Friars, London.
    When the last of Joan's siblings died in 1352, she became the 4th Countess of Kent and 5th Lady Wake of Liddell. Descendants of Lady Joan and Thomas Holland include Lady Margaret Beaufort (mother of King Henry VII) and queen consorts Anne Neville, Elizabeth of York, and Catherine Parr.

    Marriage into the royal family
    Evidence of the affection of Edward, the Black Prince (who was her first cousin once removed) for Joan may be found in the record of his presenting her with a silver cup, part of the booty from one of his early military campaigns. Edward's parents did not, however, favour a marriage between their son and their former ward. Queen Philippa had made a favourite of Joan at first, but both she and the king seem to have been concerned about Joan's reputation. English law was such that Joan's living ex-husband, Salisbury, might have claimed any children of her subsequent marriages as his own. In addition, Edward and Joan were within the prohibited degrees of consanguinity. The secret marriage they allegedly contracted in 1360 would have been invalid because of the consanguinity prohibition. At the King's request, the Pope granted a dispensation allowing the two to be legally married. The official ceremony occurred on 10 October 1361, at Windsor Castle with the King and Queen in attendance. The Archbishop of Canterbury presided.

    In 1362, the Black Prince was invested as Prince of Aquitaine, a region of France which belonged to the English Crown since the marriage of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II. He and Joan moved to Bordeaux, the capital of the principality, where they spent the next nine years. Two sons were born in France to the royal couple. The elder son, named Edward (27 January 1365 - 1370) after his father and grandfather, died at the age of six. Around the time of the birth of their younger son, Richard, the Prince was lured into a war on behalf of King Peter of Castile. The ensuing battle was one of the Black Prince’s greatest victories, but King Peter (Spanish: Pedro) was later killed, and there was no money to pay the troops. In the meantime, the Princess was forced to raise another army, because the Prince’s enemies were threatening Aquitaine in his absence.

    Transition to Dowager Princess of Wales
    By 1371, the Black Prince was no longer able to perform his duties as Prince of Aquitaine, and returned to England, where plague was wreaking havoc. In 1372, he forced himself to attempt one final, abortive campaign in the hope of saving his father’s French possessions. His health was now completely shattered. On 7 June 1376, a week before his forty-sixth birthday, he died in his bed at Westminster.

    Joan’s son was next in line to succeed King Edward III. Edward III died on 21 June 1377 and Richard became King. He was crowned Richard II at the age of 10 in the following month. Early in his reign, the young King faced the challenge of the Peasants' Revolt. The Lollards, religious reformers led by John Wyclif, had enjoyed the protection of Joan of Kent, but the violent climax of the popular movement for reform reduced the feisty Joan to a state of terror, while leaving the King with an improved reputation.

    As a power behind the throne, she was well loved for her influence over the young king - for example, on her return to London (via her Wickhambreaux estate) from a pilgrimage to Becket's shrine at Canterbury Cathedral in 1381, she found her way barred by Wat Tyler and his mob of rebels on Blackheath but was not only let through unharmed, but saluted with kisses and provided with an escort for the rest of her journey.

    In 1385, Sir John Holland, an adult son of her first marriage, was campaigning with the King in the Kingdom of Scotland, when a quarrel broke out between him and Ralph Stafford, son of the 2nd Earl of Stafford, a favourite of the new Queen Anne of Bohemia. Stafford was killed, and John Holland sought sanctuary at the shrine of St John of Beverley. On the King’s return, Holland was condemned to death. Joan pleaded with her son for four days to spare his half-brother. On the fifth day (the exact date in August is not known), she died, at Wallingford Castle. Richard relented, and pardoned Holland (though he was then sent on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land).

    Joan was buried, as requested in her will, at the Greyfriars, the site of the present hospital, in Stamford in Lincolnshire, beside her first husband. Her third husband, the Black Prince, had built a chantry for her in the crypt of Canterbury Cathedral (where he was to have been buried), with ceiling bosses of her face. Another boss in the north nave aisle is also said to be of her.

    Fictional depictions
    Joan of Kent features in several pieces of fiction. In The Lady Royal, a fictionalized biography by Molly Costain Haycraft, Joan is portrayed as a rival to her cousin, Isabella, for the affections of Enguerrand de Coucy. She is the protagonist of Sweet Passion's Pain, a novel by Karen Harper, which was republished as The First Princess of Wales. She appears briefly in Katherine by Anya Seton, as well as in The King's Mistress, by Emma Campion, where she is a friend of the main character, Alice Perrers.

    Joan is a principal character in The Wheel of Fortune by Susan Howatch, a novel that takes the characters of the Plantagenet family and recreates them in a modern dimension of the Godwin family of Oxmoon (the throne), where she appears as Ginevra (Ginette). Her story, retold in the first person, closely mirrors Joan's story and background.

    The last published book of Gordon R. Dickson's semi-historical Dragon Knight series is titled The Dragon and the Fair Maid of Kent, and Joan features as a major character in the novel.

    Madeline Hunter's first novel, By Arrangement, features Joan of Kent as a secondary character. The novel also mentions her relationships with Thomas Holland and William Montacute. Joan is portrayed as flirtatious and inconstant in her affections to the two men. Virginia Henley's Desired features Joan of Kent as a secondary character. She also appears in the novel The Nameless Day (The Crucible, #1) by Sara Douglass. In that novel, she dies when her husband's death is announced.

    Joan is the featured character in Emma Campion's 2014 historical fiction novel "A Triple Knot". The book is a fictionalized account of Joan's struggle to legalize her marriage to Thomas Holland after being forced into a marriage with William Montacute. The book also touches on her close, sometimes uncomfortable relationship with her cousin and future husband Edward, Prince of Wales who plays one of many antagonists in this novel.5

  • Marriage*: Robert de Holland 1st Baron Holand married Maude La Zouche, daughter of Alan La Zouche 1st Lord Zouche and Eleanor de Seagrave, in England.1
  • Birth*: Robert de Holland 1st Baron Holand was born circa 1283 in Lancashire, England.1,2
  • Death*: He died in 1328 in Lancashire, England.3
  • Biography*: Robert de Holland, 1st Baron Holand (c. 1283–1328) was an English nobleman, born in Lancashire.

    He was a son of Sir Robert de Holland of Upholland, Lancashire and Elizabeth, daughter of William de Samlesbury.

    He was a favorite official of Thomas, 2nd Earl of Lancaster and had been knighted by 1305. His favoured treatment by the powerful earl caused his rival knights in the area, led by Sir Adam Banastre, Sir Henry de Lea, and Sir William de Bradshagh (Bradshaw), to start a campaign of violence towards him and the earl's other supporters known as the Banastre Rebellion. The rebels protested against the earl's actions and authority by attacking the homes of his supporters and several castles, including Liverpool Castle. Sir Robert later assisted in the hunt for fugitives after the rebels had been routed in Preston by a force under the command of the Sheriff.

    The manors of Thornton and Bagworth was acquired by him in 1313. From 1314 to 1321 he was called to Parliament as a member of the House of Lords. In 1322 his part in the Battle of Boroughbridge, when he defected from Lancaster to the King, was deemed treacherous and cowardly and led to his disfavor. Although King Edward III of England would later pardon him, the partisans of the Earl of Lancaster considered him a traitor and had him executed. The execution occurred in 1328 by beheading in Essex; his head was sent to the new earl and his body to Lancashire to be buried.

    Marriage and issue
    About 1308 he married Maud la Zouche, daughter of Alan la Zouche, 1st Baron la Zouche of Ashby and Eleanor de Segrave. Robert and Maud had thirteen children:
    Joane Holland (c. 1305–1340). Married John Radcliffe.
    Margery Holland (born c. 1308, date of death unknown).
    Robert Holland (c. 1312 – 16 March 1372/1373).

    Sir Otho Holand, KG (c. 1316 – 3 September 1359). One of the founders and 23nd Knight of the Order of the Garter in 1348.

  • Birth*: Guillaume V (III) (?) Count of Hainault, Holland & Zealand was born in 1280 in Holland.3
  • Marriage*: He married Jeanne de Valois, daughter of Charles I de France Comte de Valois and Marguerite d'Anjou, circa 1310 in France.1
  • Biography*: William I, Count of Hainaut (c.?1286–7 June 1337) was Count William III of Avesnes, Count William III of Holland and Count William II of Zeeland from 1304 to his death.

    Life
    William was the son of John II, Count of Hainaut and Philippa of Luxembourg, daughter of Charles, Count of Valois and his wife Margaret, Countess of Anjou. William was originally not expected to become count, but due to the death of his elder brothers, John (killed at Kortrijk in the Battle of the Golden Spurs in 1302) and Henry (d. 1303), he became heir to his father's counties.

    Prior to becoming count, he was defeated by Guy of Namur at the battle on the island of Duiveland in 1304. Guy and Duke John II of Brabant then conquered most of Zeeland and Holland, but these territories were recovered again when William became the new count in the same year. William continued the war with Flanders until the Peace of Paris in 1323, during which the Count of Flanders denounced all claims on Zeeland. William, in turn, gained all of Zeeland but agreed to renounce all claims on Imperial Flanders. William had occupied most of the Bishopric of Utrecht and tried to conquer Friesland but was repelled by Hessel Martena. At the death of his uncle, Guy d'Avesnes, Bishop of Utrecht William took his fief of Amsterdam and annexed it to Holland.

    Many of his daughters married with important rulers of Europe; the King of England and the Holy Roman Emperor were married to his daughters, while he was married to the sister of the King of France. With these important alliances William gained considerable influence and respect which he used to advance the interests of his counties.

    Family
    On 19 May 1305 William married Joan of Valois, sister of the future king Philip VI of France, and had the following children:
    William II, Count of Hainaut (1307–1345)
    John (died 1316)
    Margaret II, Countess of Hainaut (1311–1356), married Louis IV, Holy Roman Emperor
    Philippa of Hainault (1312–1369), married King Edward III of England
    Agnes (died 1327)
    Joanna of Hainaut (1315–1374), married William V, Duke of Jülich
    Isabelle of Hainaut (1323–1361), married Robert of Namur
    Louis (1325–1328.)4

  • Birth*: Jean II d'Avesnes Comte de Hainault et Hollande was born circa 1247 in Holland*.3
  • Marriage*: He married Philippine von Luxemburg, daughter of Hendrik II 'de Blonde' van Limburg Graf von Luxemburg and Margaret de Bar le Duc, circa 1280.1
  • Death*: Jean II d'Avesnes Comte de Hainault et Hollande died on 22 August 1304 in Holland*.2
  • Biography*: John II of Avesnes (1247 – 22 August 1304) was the oldest son of John I of Avesnes and Adelaide of Holland.

    Life
    John II was Count of Hainaut from 1280 to his death, succeeding his grandmother, Margaret II. John continued the war between the House of Dampierre and the House of Avesnes against count Guy of Flanders for imperial Flanders.

    He became Count of Holland in 1299 with the death of John I, Count of Holland, through his mother Adelaide of Holland, heiress and regent of this county. His descendants maintained this personal union between the counties.

    His cousin, Count Floris V, was fighting against Flanders for Zeeland. He sought help of France against Flanders. The French defeated the Flemish in 1300 and 1301. The rebels in Zeeland were defeated as well. John's brother, Guy of Avesnes, became Bishop of Utrecht. So all his main enemies were gone.

    The tide changed dramatically after a Flemish uprising and the defeat of the French army at the Battle of the Golden Spurs in 1302, where his eldest son was killed fighting for the French. Flemish patriots attacked Hainaut and Zeeland supported by the dissatisfied population there. Guy of Namur defeated John's son, William, in a battle on the island of Duiveland. Bishop Guy of Utrecht was taken prisoner. Guy of Namur and Duke John II of Brabant conquered most of Utrecht, Holland, and Zeeland. Guy of Namur was finally defeated in 1304 by the fleet of Holland and France at the naval Battle of Zierikzee. John II regained most of his authority when he died in the same year.

    Family
    In 1270, John married Philippa of Luxembourg, daughter of Count Henry V of Luxembourg and Margaret of Bar. Their children were:
    John, Lord of Beaumont, Count of Ostervant. Killed in battle near Kortrijk (11 July 1302).
    Henry, a canon in Cambrai, (died 1303).
    William I, Count of Hainaut. He succeeded his father in 1304. Married Joan of Valois, daughter of Charles, Count of Valois and his first wife Margaret of Naples.
    John of Beaumont (1288 – 11 March 1356). He was married to Margaret, Countess de Soissons. They had five children.
    Margaret (died 18 October 1342), married Robert II of Artois, who was killed in battle near Courtrai 11 Jul 1302.
    Alix (died 26 October 1317), married 1290 Roger Bigod, 5th Earl of Norfolk. No issue.
    Isabelle (died 1305), married Raoul de Clermont Lord of Nesle, who was killed in battle near Courtrai 11 Jul 1302.
    Joan, a nun at Fontenelles.
    Mary of Avesnes (1280–1354), married Louis I, Duke of Bourbon.

  • Biography*: John of Avesnes (1 May 1218 – 24 December 1257) was the count of Hainaut from 1246 to his death. Born in Houffalize, he was the eldest son of Margaret II of Flanders by her first husband, Bouchard IV of Avesnes. As the marriage of Margaret and Bouchard was papally dissolved, he was considered illegitimate.

    His mother was remarried to William II of Dampierre and bore more children who could claim her inheritance. Thus, John and his brother Baldwin undertook to receive imperial recognition of their legitimacy and did so from the Emperor Frederick II in March 1243. On 5 December 1244, Margaret inherited Flanders and Hainaut and designated her eldest son by her second husband, William III of Dampierre, as her heir. Immediately a war, called the War of the Succession of Flanders and Hainault, was set off over the rights of inheritance, pitting John against William.

    After two years of fighting, in 1246, Louis IX of France intervened to settle the conflict. He granted Hainaut to John and Flanders to William. However, Margaret refused to hand Hainaut over to John. On 6 June 1251, William of Flanders was assassinated and it was shown that the Avesnes family had financed the crime. On 4 July 1253, John defeated the armies of Margaret and her second Dampierre son, Guy, at the Battle of West-Capelle. Guy was imprisoned and Margaret agreed to sell her rights to Hainaut to Charles of Anjou if he would reconquer it from John. John's brother-in-law William II, Count of Holland, who had been elected German King (or "King of the Romans"), was convinced to grant Hainaut (an imperial fief) and those Flemish lands within the Empire to John. Charles was defeated and King Louis, returning from the Seventh Crusade, ordered his brother to abide by his arbitration of 1246. On 22 November 1257, Guy finally relinquished Hainaut, but John died on Christmas Eve in Valenciennes.
