Philip of Saint-Pol
(1404-1430)
   Philip of Saint-Pol was born in Brussels on 25 July 1404, the second son of Anthony of Burgundy and Johanna van Saint-Pol. He entered Brussels from Paris on 2 October 1420, following his appointment as regent by the Estates of Brabant, his brother Duke John IV having left the city on quarreling with the Estates. John gathered an army at s'Hertogenbosch, in the Netherlands, and was granted entry to Brussels on 21 January 1421. Philip fled to Leuven and returned with an army of rural aristocrats and burgers, who joined with the city's craftsmen in expelling John's army. The examman Jan Clutinc was executed for having betrayed the city. Philip acquiesced in the statute of 11 February 1421, by which the craftsmen secured a share in municipal government. Reconciled with the Estates, John IV returned on 11 October 1421. Philip succeeded as duke in 1427. In 1428, he forbade the sale of English cloth in Brabant in an effort to combat competition. Philip died childless on 4 August 1430, having recognized Philip the Good of Burgundy as heir to his lands.
