French royalty, a Duchess consort of Burgundy.
She was a daughter of Charles VI of France and Isabeau of Bavaria. In June 1409, Michelle married the future Philip III, Duke of Burgundy, later known as Philip the Good. She became melancholic in 1419 following the involvement of her brother, the future King Charles VII of France, in the murder of her father-in-law, John the Fearless. Michelle had borne a daughter, Agnes, but she died in infancy.
Michelle fell ill and died in Ghent on 8 July 1422 while her husband was away preparing for the battle of Cone. After her death, it was believed she had been poisoned by a lady attendant from Germany, Dame de Viesville, a close confidante who had been dismissed to Aire just before Michelle's death. The lady was never charged.
