John II, 1294-1312, Brabant

John II of Brabant.

John II van Brabant (September 27, 1275 - October 27, 1312, Tervuren), also called John the Peaceful, was Duke of Brabant, Lothier and Limburg (1294-1312). He was the son of John I of Brabant and Margaretha of Flanders, daughter of Guy of Dampierre.
On July 8, 1290, John married Margaret Plantagenet in Westminster Abbey, London. She was a daughter of King Edward I of England and his first Queen consort Eleanor of Castile. Only one child was born out of this marriage: John III, Duke of Brabant.
John II succeeded his father in 1294. During the reign of John II, Brabant continued supporting a coalition to stop French expansion. He tried to conquer South Holland (district of medieval Holland) from the pro-French count John II of Holland, but was not successful. John, who suffered from kidney stones and wanted his duchy to be peacefully handed over to his son upon his death, in 1312 signed the famous Charter of Kortenberg.
After his death in 1312 John II was buried in the St. Michael and Gudula Cathedral in Brussels.
