Edward III of Bar
Birth: Jun., 1377
Death: Oct. 25, 1415

French Nobility. Also known as Edouard d'Bar. A division commander at the Battle of Agincourt (October 25, 1415), he died in action. The son of Robert, first Duke of Bar, he became heir to the Duchy in 1396 following the death of his two older brothers in the Battle of Nicopolis. He fought with the Duke of Orleans during the Guyenne campaign (1406), but after Orleans' assasination the following year he switched to the rival Burgundian political party and served John the Fearless. In 1411 he succeeded to the Dukedom of Bar. Along with John I of Alencon, Edward commanded the French Army's second division at Agincourt, being responsible for roughly 2000 of its 8000 men. With him were his younger brother John, Lord of Puisaye, and his nephew Robert, Count of Marle and Soissons. All three were killed. They were buried together at a monastery church in the nearby town of Hesdin (later razed by the Spanish). These losses affected the Duchy of Bar for generations. In 1483 it lost its independent status and became part of the Duchy of Lorraine. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
