His father died at Tunis and there Philip was declared king at the age of 25. He was called "the Bold" on the basis of his abilities in combat and on horseback and not his character. He followed the dictates of others, first of Pierre de la Broce and then of his uncle Charles I of Sicily. After his succession, he quickly set his uncle on negotiations with the emir to conclude the crusade, while he himself returned to France. A ten-year truce was concluded and Philip was crowned in France on 12 August 1271. [Wikipedia]
