Joan of Acre Plantagenet

Isabella of Hainault (Valenciennes, 5 April 1170 – 15 March 1190, Paris) was Queen consort of France as the first wife of King Philip II of France. She married King Philip on 28 April 1180 and brought as her dowry the county of Artois. Though she received extravagant praise from certain annalists, she failed to win the affections of Philip. Isabella appeared barefooted and dressed as a penitent in the town's churches and thus gained the sympathy of the people.
