Wiki: Mary of Burgundy Wiki

She ruled the Burgundian territories in the Low Countries and was suo jure Duchess of Burgundy from 1477 until her death. As the only child of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, and his wife Isabella of Bourbon, she was the heiress to the vast, and vastly wealthy, Burgundian domains in France and the Low Countries upon her father's death in the Battle of Nancy on 5 January 1477, and was accordingly sometimes referred to as "Mary the Rich".

The 25-year-old Duchess died due to a fall from her horse on 27 March 1482 near Wijnendale Castle. She loved riding, and was falconing with her husband, the Emperor Maximilian, when her horse tripped, threw her, and then landed on top of her, breaking her back. She died a few days later, having made a detailed will. She is buried in the Church of Our Lady in Bruges.

She was the last of the Burgundian branch of the House of Valois.  -30-
