He was the son of Philip II, Count of Nevers by his wife Bonne of Artois, daughter of Philip of Artois, Count of Eu.

In 1472, his uncle Charles of Artois, Count of Eu died, and having no legitimate children, his title also passed to John.

John fought in the army of his stepfather Philip the Good and was active in Picardy (1434), Calais (1436), Luxembourg (1443) and Flanders (1453). But he clashed with Philip's successor, Charles the Bold and he defected to King Louis XI of France.
