Misc. Notes
Robert I "the Good" (1216 – February 8, 1250) was Count of Artois. He was the third (and second surviving) son of King Louis VIII of France and Blanche of Castile.

On June 14, 1237, Robert married Matilda of Brabant, daughter of Henry II, Duke of Brabant, and they had two children:
1. Blanche of Artois (1248–1302)
2. Robert II of Artois (1250–1302), Count of Artois

He was killed in Egypt during the Seventh Crusade of his brother Louis IX of France, while leading a reckless attack on Al Mansurah. He and the Templars accompanying the expedition charged into the town and became trapped in the narrow streets. According to Jean de Joinville, he defended himself for some time in a house there, but was at last overpowered and killed.
