    Joan was the only daugh­ter of Guy, Count of Penthièvre (brother of John III, Duke of Brit­tany), and Jeanne d'Avaugour. Through her fa­ther she be­came Count­ess of Penthièvre in her own right, and es­tab­lished her ducal claims.

    Joan was one of the pro­tag­o­nists of the War of the Bre­ton Suc­ces­sion. The issue of suc­ces­sion to the ducal crown would in­volve the issue of whether a child could, re­gard­less of gen­der, claim the right of "rep­re­sen­ta­tion" of a de­ceased par­ent — in which case Joan would in­herit her fa­ther's rights as the sec­ond brother of the late duke — or whether the next el­dest male heir in a par­tially collineal line out­ranked all oth­ers. In the Bre­ton suc­ces­sion, the col­lat­eral claimant was Joan's half-un­cle John of Mont­fort, born from the sec­ond mar­riage of Arthur II, Duke of Brit­tany, to Yolande of Dreux. John III had been alien­ated from Yolande, his step­mother, and sought to pre­vent his half-brother from suc­ceed­ing him, in­clud­ing an abortive at­tempt to annul his fa­ther's sec­ond mar­riage and so ren­der his half-sib­lings illegitimate.[a] In 1337, Joan mar­ried Charles of Blois in Paris. In 1341, on the death of John III, the cou­ple as­sumed the rule...

    The con­test be­tween the two claimants was then set­tled in 1365 by the First Treaty of Guérande; by its terms, Joan re­ceived a sub­stan­tial pen­sion (pay­ments of which con­tin­ued until 1372) in com­pen­sa­tion for her claims, the right to main­tain the ducal title for life, all her fa­mil­ial lands of Penthièvre and Avau­gour, and an ex­emp­tion from homage to the new duke for these ter­ri­to­ries. Most crit­i­cally for fu­ture events, her male heirs would re­cover the duchy if John IV had no male pos­ter­ity, and women were now for­mally pro­hib­ited from in­her­it­ing the duchy. In 1379, when John IV had been forced into exile in Eng­land, King Charles V of Franceat­tempted to annex Brit­tany to the French royal do­main. Joan was shocked by this vi­o­la­tion of her rights and those of her sons, as laid out in the Treaty of Guérande. Both her sup­port­ers and those of the Mont­fort line united to in­vite John IV back from his exile in Eng­land and re­take con­trol of the duch...

    Joan died on 10 Sep­tem­ber 1384 and was buried at the church of the Fri­ars Minor of Guingamp. Joan had lost the ducal title and pow­ers of Brit­tany for her de­scen­dants, and de­spite at­tempts to re­claim the ducal crown this loss was per­ma­nent. How­ever, her de­scen­dants were ap­pointed from time to time to high ad­min­is­tra­tive posts in Brit­tany under the fu­ture kings of France. Her title and rights as Count­ess of Penthièvre were in­her­ited only to be lost from time to time to the Duke of Brit­tany as her de­scen­dants con­tin­ued their con­flicts with the House of Mont­fort.

    Joan of France was born on 23 April 1464 as the second daughter of Louis XI of France and Charlotte of Savoy. Shortly after she was born, it was agreed that she should marry her fathers second cousin, the Duke of Orléans who would become Louis XII of France.

    At the age of 12, Joan was married to the Duke of Orléans in Montrichard. Her father died in 1483, and he was succeeded by Joans only brother Charles (VIII). Her older sister Anne became regent as Charles was still a child.

    Charles died in an accident at the age of 27 in 1498. All of his children with Anne of Brittany died at birth or shortly after. He was therefore succeeded by his brother-in-law, Joans husband, Louis.

    Unfortunately, the pope was not a neutral party in this case, and he granted the annulment. Joan was made Duchess of Berry, and she retired to Bourges.

    Joan turned to the spiritual life. She made plans for the Order of the Virgin Mary, dedicated to the Immaculate Conception of Mary. She was committed to the order on 21 November 1504. She died there on 4 February 1505 and was buried in the chapel. She was only 40 years old.In 1562 her grave was desecrated by Huguenots during the sack of Bourges.

    After miracles and healings had been attributed to her, she was beatified in 1742 and canonised in 1950. She is now known as Saint Joan of Valois.
