Philippe II's victory at Bouvines

At Bouvines, Philip defeated John I's allied force of German, Flemish and English armies under the command of his nephew, Otto IV. (This was to be coordinated with the opening of a second front in Aquitaine by John.) This ended the king's efforts to recover his Angevin lands. As a military failure it cost John his remaining political capital at home.
