second wife Isabel of Bourbon who died in 1465.
In 1454 Charles the Bold's mother, Isabella of Burgundy, granddaughter of John of Gaunt, had favoured a match with England when considering a second wife for her son, but a marriage into the present English royal family was out of the question due to the reigning monarchs consort Margaret of Anjou, being the niece of Charles VII of France who was Burgundy’s bitterest enemy, it was then Charles married Isabel. Eleven years later, in 1465 after the death of Isabel, Charles was in need of a new wife. This time however, the Yorkists were in a far better position than they had been in 1454, now Edward IV was king of England. Edward's sister Margaret, the youngest daughter of Richard, Duke of York and Cecily Neville was the chosen bride, and in 1468 it was Phillippe Pot who headed the marriage negotiations with the English.
"the most accomplished knight of his time."
Emile Male, a French 19th century historian writes of Pots tomb:
"The mourners, enlarged to life-size, have been transformed into pallbearers, and on their shoulders rests the stone slab bearing the recumbent effigy of the Seneschal of Burgundy, clad in his armour,These are eight relatives, all of the noble
house of Burgundy, for each one carries a shield on which his kinship is indicated. They tread with heavy step, bowed down
by the weight of the deceased on their shoulders, but apparently with even greater weight in their hearts. Nothing could be more real, more solid, than these eight knights as massive as Romanesque pillars; yet at the same time, nothing could be more mysterious. The great figures veiled in black are as frightening as specters of the night. Certainly, they do not belong
to this world: sent by Death, they show themselves for a moment, but shortly they will vanish, to return to the land of shadows."
