John I of France
Jean lived for only a few days and many believed his uncle, the future King Philippe V, caused his death in order to gain the throne. There were also stories that Philippe had the child kidnapped and substituted a dead child in his place. During the 1350s, a man claiming to be King Jean I appeared in Provence. He was quickly put in prison and died there.
