Louis of Nevers,Count of Flanders, Nevers and Rethel, born as son of Louis I, Count of Nevers succeeded his grandfather Robert III, Count of Flanders. In a treaty with William III, Count of Holland and Hainaut he relinquished his rights to Flanders, in exchange for the manorial fief of Zeeland-bewester-Scheldt. In 1325 he was taken prisoner by peasants after which the Pope in Avignon placed Flanders under an interdict. When the Hundred Years War started, the pro-French politics of Louis were not to the advantage the Flemish dependance on the wool trade with England. In 1338 under the influence of the leader of the Ghent trade guilds Jacob van Artevelde, Flanders increasingly turned to England. The Flemish even supported the English King Edward III with his claim as King of France. In 1340 the French king Philip VI of Valois was defeated by the English and Flemings at the battle of Sluis. Jacob van Artevelde was murdered in 1345.

Louis of Nevers is also referred to as Louis de Crécy after he died fighting for the French at the Battle of Crécy in 1346.
