Joan II of Navarre (1311-1349)

Joan II of Navarre (1311 † 1349), daughter of Louis X of France and Margaret of Burgundy, Queen of France.

The half-sister of John I of France, the posthumous and first daughter of Louis X of France, had been put aside from the realm if favor of her uncle Philip V of France. Nevertheless, she became Queen of Navarre. Her recumbent effigy shows her wearing a veil specific to widows covering a large part of her face.
