Early Life

John Philip was conceived out of wedlock in Paris, France at the The Burgundy House in 1558.

Season 2

John Philip was born in a barn during The Black Plague outbreak in France in 1558. Soon after his mother Lola gave birth to him, his father King Francis, arrived. Not long after they were all together was it realized the Plague had reached inside the barn, which led the three of them to quickly flee. [1]

The next day, they were introduced to Louis Condé, a cousin of his fathers. He supplied them with food and water. Once his dehydrated mother was fed, she was able to produce milk to feed him. A few days later, his father decided to keep him and bring him to court. [1]

Days later, they all arrived at French Court and were greeted by Lady Greer and Lady Kenna. A few nights later he was visited by his father and a nanny. [2]

The next week John was brought down to Tent City with his mother and was cooed over by many noble women, including Lady Barnard.[3]

Not long after his father's Coronation, John was christened with Queen Mary as his Godmother.[4]

King Francis confessed to his wife that he was visiting his son and apologized to her admitting that he had been lying about it to spare her from being hurt about it. [5]

Cried for three days from baby colic. His mother stayed by his side the entire time, but he calmed down or tired himself out when his dad came to hold him. [6]

His dad and mom visited him together for the first time in a couple of weeks.[7]

His father arranged a marriage proposal for him with the daughter of The Duke and Duchess Von Amsberg. [8]

King Francis sent him and his mother away for their safety while the castle was under attack and facing civil war, and a coupe from Louis Condé. [9]

On their way back from the safe house, they were kidnapped and taken somewhere against their will. They were eventually found by Lord Narcisse and brought back to Court. It turned out Queen Catherine was behind the whole thing. [10]
