Anthony of Burgundy

Anthony of Burgundy
   Anthony of Burgundy was born in August 1384, the second son of Philip the Bold and Margaret of Male. He succeeded as duke of Brabant in making his Joyeuse Entrée on 18 December 1406. Anthony sojourned often in Brussels and he established the Chamber of Accounts of the duchy of Brabant in Brussels, which greatly enhanced the city's status as an administrative center. Beginning in his reign, the chancellor, councillors, and other officials settled in Brussels, remaining there even in the absence of the sovereign. Anthony died on the battlefield of Agincourt on 25 October 1415.
