Philip of Artois (1269 – September 11, 1298) was the son of Robert II of Artois, Count of Artois, and Amicie de Courtenay. He was the Lord of Conches, Nonancourt, and Domfront.
He married Blanche of Brittany, daughter of John II, Duke of Brittany, and had the following children:
- Margaret (1285–1311), married in 1301 Louis, Count of Évreux
- Robert III of Artois (1287–1342)
- Isabelle (1288–1344), a nun at Poissy
- Joan of Artois (1289 – aft. 1350), married Gaston I, Count of Foix, in Senlis in 1301
- Marie (1291 – January 22, 1365, Wijnendaele), Lady of Merode, married in 1309 in Paris John I, Marquis of Namur
- Catherine (1296–1368, Normandy), married John II of Ponthieu, Count of Aumale
He served under his father at the Battle of Furnes, where he was wounded. He never recovered, and died of the effects over a year later. He was buried in the now-demolished church of the Couvent des Jacobins in Paris. His premature death led to a legal battle later, when Artois was left to his sister Mahaut rather than his son Robert.
