Isabelle was the daughter of Charles II, duke of Lorraine. She married René I, who at various points in his life held the titles of duke of Anjou, duke of Lorraine, and king of Naples, among others. When he was captured by the duke of Burgundy in 1431, Isabelle organized an army and worked to negotiate his release. She reigned as duchess of Lorraine from 1431 until her death.
