The fighting ceased after the 1301 Treaty of Bruges. Under its terms, Henry gave up some fortresses and paid homage to Philip for part of his lands, then called the Barrois mouvant. He also undertook to fight in Cyprus against the Muslim forces.

Henry therefore made his way to the Kingdom of Naples. In assisting Charles II of Naples against the invading forces of Frederick I of Sicily, he was wounded in fighting, and died soon afterwards.


He married Eleanor of England (1269-1298), daughter of Edward I of England and Eleanor of Castile, at Bristol on 20 September 1293.[1] Their children were :
