Margaret of France (1310 – 9 May 1382) was a medieval noblewoman, reigning Countess Palatine of Burgundy (Franche-Comté) and Countess of Artois, ruling both as Margaret I, as well as countess-consort of Flanders, Nevers and Rethel. Her father was Philip V, king of France from 1316-22.


Early life

She was born in 1310, the second daughter of Joan II, Countess of Burgundy, and her husband Philip, Count of Poitiers, afterwards King Philip V of France. Margaret's mother was Countess Palatine of Burgundy (daughter and heiress of Otto IV, Count of Burgundy) and Queen consort of France; Margaret's father was the second son of king Philip IV of France and Queen regnant Joan I of Navarre.


In 1316 her father became King Philip V of France, following the premature death of her infant first cousin John I of France. Margaret was married to Louis I, Count of Flanders (1304–1346), who was ruler of Flanders, Nevers and Rethel from 1322. Her husband was dependent on her father in suppressing the rebellion of Nicolaas Zannekin. Her father died in 1322, and by law the crown was inherited by her uncle, Charles, Count of La Marche.

Margaret's mother, Joan II, succeeded her own mother, Mahaut, Countess of Artois, as ruler of Artois in 1329. Margaret's elder sister Joan, Duchess of Burgundy (1308–49) inherited the county when their mother died in 1329, becoming Countess of Artois and Palatine Countess of Burgundy.
