    Little is recorded about Philip's childhood and youth, in large part because he was not of royal birth. Philip's father Charles, Count of Valois, the younger brother of King Philip IV of France, had striven throughout his life to gain a throne for himself, but was never successful. He died in 1325, leaving his eldest son Philip as heir to the counties of Anjou, Maine, and Valois. In 1328, Philip's first cousin Charles IV died without a son, his widow Jeanne d'Évreux pregnant at the time of his death. Philip was one of the two chief claimants to the throne. The other was King Edward III of England, who was the late king's closest male relative through his mother Isabella, the late king's sister. The question arose of whether Isabella should have been able to transmit a claim that she herself did not possess. The assemblies of the French barons and prelates and the University of Paris decided that males who derive their right to inheritance through their mother should be excluded acco...

    Philip's reign was plagued with crises, although it began with a military success in Flanders at the Battle of Cassel (August 1328), where Philip's forces re-seated Louis I, Count of Flanders, who had been unseated by a popular revolution. His wife, the able Joan the Lame, gave the first of many demonstrations of her competence as regent in his absence. Philip initially enjoyed relatively amicable relations with Edward III, and they planned a crusade together in 1332, which was never executed. However, the status of the Duchy of Aquitaine remained a sore point, and tension increased. Philip provided refuge for David II of Scotlandin 1334 and declared himself champion of his interests, which enraged Edward. By 1336, they were enemies, although not yet openly at war. Philip successfully prevented an arrangement between the papacy in Avignon and Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV, although in July 1337 Louis concluded an alliance with Edward III. The final breach with England came when Edward...

    In July, 1313, Philip married Joan the Lame (French language: Jeanne), daughter of Robert II, Duke of Burgundy, and Agnes of France, the youngest daughter of Louis IX. In an ironic twist to his "male" ascendancy to the throne, the intelligent, strong-willed Joan, an able regent of France during the king's long military campaigns, was said to be the brains behind the throne and the real ruler of France. Their children were the following: 1. Philip (b. 1315) Died in infancy. 2. Joan (b. 1317) Died in infancy. 3. John II (26 April 1319 – 8 April 1364) 4. Marie (1326–1333), who married John of Brabant, the son and heir of John III, Duke of Brabant, but died shortly afterwards. 5. Louis (17 January 1328 – 17 January 1328) 6. Louis (8 June 1330 – 23 June 1330) 7. John (2 October 1333) 8. son (28 May 1335). Presumably died the same day, or a few days later. 9. Philip of Valois (1336–1376), Duke of Orléans 10.
