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

He married Blanche of Brittany,[2] 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. He was buried in the now-demolished church of the Couvent des Jacobins in Paris. His premature death led to a legal battle later, when Artois was left to his sister Mahaut rather than his son Robert.
