Philip was a gallant and energetic soldier. In 1383, he captured the town of Bourbourg from the English. He went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, and was imprisoned there by the Sultan of Egypt, being released through the mediation of Jean Boucicaut and the Venetians. In 1390, he joined the unsuccessful expedition of Louis II, Duke of Bourbon, against Mahdia. In 1392, he was created Constable of France.
- Philip II of Artois, Count of Eu,(1393-1397) was an infant when he succeeded his father, and survived him only by a little over six months. As his father was a captive in Turkey at the time, and it took time to know that Count Philip I had died, his own time as Count was a brief one, little marked, and, in fact, generally ignored. However, he is buried in a tomb that names him as Comte d'Eu, in the crypt of the Collegiale church of Eu. His next brother Charles succeeded him on his death, aged about 4, on December 23, 1397.
- Charles of Artois, Count of Eu, captured at Agincourt (1394–1472)
- Bonne of Artois (1396 – September 17, 1425, Dijon), married at Beaumont-en-Artois on June 20, 1413, Philip II, Count of Nevers, and afterwards at Moulins-les-Engelbert on November 30, 1424, Philip III, Duke of Burgundy
- Catherine (1397–1418/22), married c. 1416 John of Bourbon, Lord of Carency
