How he's grown, if only Francis could see him.

Jean-Philippe Valois Angoulême (English: John-Philip) is the illegitimate son of Francis and Lola. He was officially claimed by his father in The Lamb and the Slaughter, receiving the title of 1st Baron of Velay. He returns to French Court in Leaps of Faith, where he was with Lola as she was Elizabeth's prisoner.

Season One[]

In Dirty Laundry, Lola finds out she's pregnant with Francis' baby. At first she tried to get an abortion but Mary stopped her right before the operation was about to begin. She went into labor during the season finale.

Season Two[]

In The Plague, the baby boy is being taken care of by his mother through most of the episode, when his father arrives to bring them to safety. His father mostly keeps his distance from him but when he starts to cry and his mother is nowhere to be seen. Francis holds him and decides he can't send him away.

In The Lamb and the Slaughter, the baby is finally christened in a ceremony where he is named Jean-Philippe Valois-Angouleme 1st Baron of Velay with Mary Stuart named as his godmother.

Season Three[]

He's orphaned when he loses his parents in a less of a year of each other.

Season Four[]

In Leaps of Faith, Jean-Philippe and Narcisse return to French Court. He said "He has Lola’s eyes, and I can not bear to look at him”. Catherine thanks Narcisse for returning him to her, and she promises to protect and look after him.



Francis was his father. Lola kept Francis from knowing about his son. In the end of the season finale Francis finds out (with Mary's help) and tries to go save him and Lola from the Plague.


Lola decided to leave with her son away from the Castle on a boat but Francis denied that request after holding his baby for the first time.
