Philip of Artois (1269 – September 11, 1298) was the son of Robert II of Artois, Count of Artois,[1] and Amicie de Courtenay. He was the Lord of Conches, Nonancourt, and Domfront.

He married Blanche of Brittany, daughter of John II, Duke of Brittany, and had the following children:

He served under his father at the Battle of Furnes, where he was wounded. He never recovered, and died of the effects over a year later.[2] His premature death led to a legal battle later, when Artois was left to his sister Mahaut rather than his son Robert.
