Philippe, acting as regent after the death of his brother Louis, took the throne in 1316 after the death of Louis' only son John. Louis had a daughter Joan by an earlier marriage but Philippe ensured that Joan would not become Queen by reinvoking an old law called the Salic Law that stated a woman should not succeed to the throne. During his short reign Philippe brought about many administrative reforms and attempted to impose income taxes of twenty percent. He died of tuberculosis in 1322 and was succeeded by his brother Charles.
