Philip of Orléans (1 July 1336 – 1 September 1375) was a Duke of Orléans, Touraine, and Count of Valois, the fifth son of King Philip VI of France[1] and his wife Joan the Lame.

His father named him Duke of Orléans, a newly created duchy, in 1344.

Marriage and Issue

On 18 January 1345, he married his relative Blanche (1 April 1328 – 1392), the daughter of Charles IV the Fair and Jeanne d'Évreux,[1][2] but they had no children.

He had two natural sons, and one of them was Louis d'Orléans, who became bishop of Poitiers then bishop of Beauvais. A natural daughter, Marie d'Orléans, married Gédéon V of Beauvilliers.

As a consequence of the Treaty of Brétigny he served some time as a hostage in England for the good behaviour of his brother John II of France, when he was temporarily released.

Philip died in 1376 without any legitimate issue. His title and lands returned to the royal domain.
