Charles of Artois, Count of Eu

Charles of Artois (1394 – July 25, 1472), son of Philip of Artois, Count of Eu and Marie of Berry, was Count of Eu from December 1397 until his death, 74 years later. He was appointed Lieutenant of the King in Normandy and Guyenne, and Governor of Paris. He was taken prisoner by the English at the Battle of Agincourt on 25 October 1415, and was not released until 1438. In 1448, he married Jeanne of Saveuse (died 1449) and on 23 September 1454, Helene of Melun (d. 1473), but he had no children. He was succeeded by his nephew John II, Count of Nevers.
