The county of Brienne was situated north-west of the county of Bar-sur-Aube, centred on Brienne-le-Château which is located in the arrondissement of Bar-sur-Aube in the present-day French département of Aube.  Flodoard records, in the entry for 951, the construction of a fortress at Brienne by the brothers Gotbert and Engelbert, the descendants of the latter continuing to rule as comtes de Brienne until the mid-14th century, when the title passed to the family of the comtes d’Enghien.  The comtes de Brienne provided one king of Jerusalem (Jean de Brienne, who subsequently became emperor of the Latin Empire of Constantinople), an unsuccessful claimant to the throne of Sicily, and a duke of Athens in the early 14th century. 

 

 

 

Chapter 1.    COMTES de BRIENNE

 

 

Two brothers, parents not known: 

1.         GOTBERT [Gauzbert] (-after 951).  Flodoard records in 951 that "Gotbertus…ac frater eius Angilbertus" had built "munitionem…Brenam" and were raiding the surrounding country and that Louis IV King of France besieged and destroyed the castle[1]

2.         ENGELBERT [I] (-after [968]).  Comte de Brienne (comes Brennensis).  Flodoard records in 951 that "Gotbertus…ac frater eius Angilbertus" had built "munitionem…Brenam" and were raiding the surrounding country and that Louis IV King of France besieged and destroyed the castle[2].  "Adso, Rosniacensis territorii comes" donated property "in pago Pertense" to Montiérender by charter dated [968], subscribed by "Ingelberti comitis, Ysvardi comitis"[3]m ---.  The name of Engelbert's wife is not known.  Engelbert [I] & his wife had [one possible child]: 

i)          [INGELTRUDE (-after 980)According to Europäische Stammtafeln[4], the wife of Milon [II] Comte de Tonnerre was the possible daughter of Engelbert [I] de Brienne, but the basis for this speculation has not been found.  It is possible that it is based on the location of the property donated in the Jul 980 charter in which “Milo comes pagi Tornodorensis…et Ingeltrudis uxoris suæ” restored the monastery of Saint-Michel, naming property "in pago Brionense in villa Jasant" half of which was donated immediately and the other half "post excessum Ingeltrudis uxoris suæ", signed by "Richardi comitis, Milonis"[5].  The correctness of the speculation appears confirmed by an undated charter which records that "Milo quondam comes" donated property "in villa…Jassant" to Saint-Michel, and that the property was claimed after his death by "comes Ingelbertus" (presumably either Engelbert [II] or Engelbert [III] Comte de Brienne)[6]m MILON [II] Comte de Tonnerre, son of MILON [I] Comte [de Tonnerre] & his wife Adalgaris --- (-after 980).] 

 

 

ENGELBERT [II] [de Brienne], son of --- .  His existence is confirmed by the charter dated to [1027] under which "Ingelbertus…comes" donated property to Montiérender naming "quondam Ingelbertus comes predecessor noster"[7].  The dating suggests that the earlier Engelbert must have been a different person from Engelbert [I] (see above).  This source does not specify that Engelbert's predecessor was his father.  Comte de Brienne.  1004/08. 

m firstly WANDALMODIS, daughter of --- Comte & his wife Adela de Salins.  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres", adding "ex Umberto, Adala comitissa, ex Adala Windesmodis soror matris vestræ non german, ex Windesmode Ingelbertus et Witdo de Upione"[8]

m secondly as her second husband, ALIX de Sens, widow of GEOFFROY de Joigny, daughter of RENARD [I] Comte de Sens & his wife ---.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the wife of "comes de Brena super Albam Engelbertus" as "comitissam Ioviniaci viduam de primo marito"[9].  She died before her husband, as the same passage refers to her son-in-law inheriting Joigny after her death and subsequently building the first castle of Joinville with the help of his father-in-law.  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. 

Comte Engelbert [II] & his first wife had two children:

1.         ENGELBERT [III] de Brienne (-1035 or after).  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres", adding "ex Umberto, Adala comitissa, ex Adala Windesmodis soror matris vestræ non germana, ex Windesmode Ingelbertus et Witdo de Upione"[10]Comte de Brienne.  1027/35.

2.         GUY de la Pione .  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres", adding "ex Umberto, Adala comitissa, ex Adala Windesmodis soror matris vestræ non germana, ex Windesmode Ingelbertus et Witdo de Upione"[11].  1027/1031.  "Ingelberti comitis, fratrisque eius Widonis" subscribed a charter dated [1035 or before] under which "Constantius…et uxor eius Hildegardis" donated property to Montiérender[12]m ---.  The name of Guy's wife is not known.  Guy & his wife had two children: 

a)         LETAUD .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  "Walterus comes Brenensis…mater mea Petronilla" donated property to Montiérender by charter dated 6 Jun 1050, subscribed by "Letaldi comitis Cereaci"[13], although the relationship between the former and the latter is not specified in the document. 

b)         GAUTHIER de Ciresio .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  1075/83.  m ---.  The name of Gauthier's wife is not known.  Gauthier & his wife had two children: 

i)          GUY .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  1075/83. 

ii)         THIBAUT .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  1075/83.  "Airardus Breonensis comes…et comitem Barrensem Milonem fratrem suum" are named in a charter dated [1125 or before], subscribed by "Milonis comitis, Widonis filii eius…Teboldo de Ciresio"[14]

Comte Engelbert [II] & his second wife had one child:

3.         daughter .  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the only daughter of "comes de Brena super Albam Engelbertus" & his [second] wife as wife of "Stephano…de Vallibus", specifying that her husband became "comes Ioviniaci" by right of his wife after the death of his mother-in-law and started building the first castle of Joinville with the help of his father-in-law[15].  Dudon abbot of Montiérender granted benefits to “Stephano de Juncivilla”, noting that “Engelbertus comes Breonensis...sororem” married “supra memorato Stephano”, by undated charter[16].  Delaborde dates this charter to before 15 May 1027[17], presumably because of the charter of that date quoted above.  m (before 1027) ETIENNE de Vaux Seigneur de Joinville, son of --- . 

 

 

ENGELBERT [III] de Brienne, son of ENGELBERT [II] de Brienne & his first wife Wandelmodis --- (-1035 or after).  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres", adding "ex Umberto, Adala comitissa, ex Adala Windesmodis soror matris vestræ non german, ex Windesmode Ingelbertus et Witdo de Upione"[18].  "Ingelbertus…comes" donated property to Montiérender by charter dated [1027] "actum Breona castello" in which he names "quondam Ingelbertus comes predecessor noster", subscribed by "Adeledis comitisse, Wuarneri, Gocelmi, Guntardi, Bernard"[19], although "Adeledis comitisse" has not been identified.  It is possible that she was an earlier wife of Comte Engelbert [III].  This source does not specify that Engelbert's predecessor was his father, but the primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Comte de Brienne.  1035. 

m PETRONILLE, daughter of --- (-after 6 Jun 1050).  "Comes Breonensium Gualterus cum matre sua Petronilla" donated property to Montiérender by charter dated 28 Dec 1035[20], presumably following the death of their father/husband although this is not stated in the document.  "Comite Waltero et matre eius Petronilla" are named as present in a charter dated [12 Jun 1050 or before] under which "Bosoni iuvenis" donated property to Montiérender, naming "pater eius Elbertus"[21].  "Walterus comes Brenensis…mater mea Petronilla" donated property to Montiérender by charter dated 6 Jun 1050, subscribed by "Letaldi comitis Cereaci"[22]

Comte Engelbert [III] & his wife had one child: 

1.         GAUTHIER [I] de Brienne (-[1090]).  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Windesmode Ingelbertus et Witdo de Upione, ex Ingelberto Walterius comes de Brena"[23].  "Comes Breonensium Gualterus cum matre sua Petronilla" donated property to Montiérender by charter dated 28 Dec 1035[24]Comte de Brienne.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Galterus" as successor of "comes de Brena…Engilbertum" but does not specify the relationship between the two[25]m EUSTACHIE de Tonnerre, daughter of MILO [V] Comte de Tonnerre et de Bar-sur-Seine & his wife Aceka ---.  1072/[1100/05].  Ctss de Bar-sur-Seine.  "Rainardus…Lingonensis episcopus, Walteri Breonensis comitis heredis mei et uxoris sue sororis mee" donated property to Montiérender by charter dated 1072, subscribed by "Eustatie comitisse, Walteri comitis Brinensis, Engelberti filii eius, Widonis comitis, Girardi militis, Widonis militis, Aldonis"[26].  Comte Gauthier [I] & his wife had five children:

ii)         GUY de Brienne (-after 22 Jan 1143).  "Guidonis fratris comitis" subscribed the charter dated 22 Jan 1143 of "Walterus Brenensis comes"[39]

iii)        FELICITE de Brienne (-after 21 Jun 1178)The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Brenensem Galterum et sororem eius Felicitatem" as children of "Erardus…comes Brenensis" & his wife, naming the husband of Félicité "Symon de Brois, qui iacet in Baia, filius Hugonis Bardol" and their sons "Hugonem de Brois qui iacet in Claravalle et Symonem de Belloforti"[40]The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Galterum comitem eiusdem loci et sororem eius nomine Felicitatem" as children of "Aerardo comiti Briennensi" & his wife, specifying that "Felicitas vero soror iam dicti Galteri peperit Simoni de Brois Hugonem et Simonem.  Quo defuncto, genuit Ioifrido domino de Iunvilla liberos"[41].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the donation dated 1182 by "Simon Seigneur de Beaufort" (her son) to the abbey of Andecy which is subscribed by "Geoffroy Seigneur de Joinville son frère, Pierre chapelain du Sire de Broyes également son frère"[42].  Henri Bishop of Toul confirmed the donation of “curiam Gauvillaris” made by “Gaufrido Jovillæ domino uxoreque eius Felicitate et Roberto fratre suo” by charter dated 9 Mar 1141 (O.S.?)[43]m firstly SIMON Seigneur de Broyes, son of HUGUES [II] "Bardoul" Seigneur de Broyes & his wife Emmeline de Montlhéry (-[4 Jan [1137/40], bur Baye, near Epernay).  m secondly (before 9 Mar 1142) GEOFFROY [III] Seigneur de Joinville, son of ROGER Seigneur de Joinville & his wife Aldearde de Vignory (-[1187/88]).

GAUTHIER [II] de Brienne, son of ERARD [I] Comte de Brienne & his wife Alix de Montdidier (-before 1161).  "Airardus Breonensis comes…et comitem Barrensem Milonem fratrem suum" are named in a charter dated [1125 or before], in which "Walterii nepotis sui filii Airardi defuncti comitis" is named, clarifying that his father was then deceased[50]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Brenensem Galterum et sororem eius Felicitatem" as children of "Erardus…comes Brenensis" & his wife[51]The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Galterum comitem eiusdem loci et sororem eius nomine Felicitatem" as children of "Aerardo comiti Briennensi" & his wife, specifying that "Galterus comes genuit Aerardum comitem et Andream atque Mariam castellanam de Sancto Otmaro cum aliis liberis"[52].  He succeeded his father as Comte de Brienne.  Seigneur de Ramerupt.  He founded the abbey of Bassefontaine with his mother in 1143[53].  "Walterus Brenensis comes" granted "decimam reddituum suorum de Brena Castello" to the abbey of Basse-Fontaine by charter dated 22 Jan 1143, subscribed by "Airardi filii sui, Andree filii sui, Marie filie sue…Johannis de Brena clerici…Guidonis fratris comitis"[54].  He took part in the Second Crusade in 1147[55]

[m firstly ---.  This possible first marriage is indicated only by one possible interpretation of the charter dated 1174 under which the bishop of Troyes confirmed his judgment relating to "villa de Prait" which names "comitum de Brena Herardum" and is witnessed by "Andreas frater comitis, Erardus nepos eius de Chacenaio"[56].  As discussed more fully below under Comte Gauthier [II]’s wife Humbeline, this document could mean that Erard de Chacenay was related to Erard [II] Comte de Brienne through Humbeline’s possible first marriage.  If that is correct, Comte Gauthier’s daughter Agnes, married to Jacques de Chacenay, must have been born from an otherwise unrecorded earlier marriage of her father.  As noted below, the more likely interpretation of the 1174 document is that Erard de Chacenay was nepos of Erard [II] because he was the son of the latter’s sister.] 

m [firstly/secondly] ([repudiated before 1147]) HUMBELINE de Baudémont, daughter of ANDRE de Baudémont Seneschal de Champagne & his wife Agnes --- (-1166 or after).  A charter dated 1138 notes that "Galterum Brennensem comitem" donated property to the hospitals of Chalette and Brienne with the consent of "uxoris sue Hubeline"[57].  Her parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1144 under which "Aelidis uxor Widonis domini de Brana post mortem viri sui…Guidonis" donated "census…Branæ castri et Branellæ villæ" to the Premonstré abbey, with the consent of "patre eorum Andrea de Baldimento et matre eorum Agnetis et ipsorum fratre Waleranno Vrsicampi abbate et sororibus eorum Helwide et Hubelina et earum maritis Waltero comiti de Brienna et Guidone de Dampierre" (although the names of the brothers-in-law are reversed in this document)[58].  [It is possible that Humbeline married firstly Anseric [II] Seigneur de Chacenay.  This possible first marriage is suggested by one interpretation of the charter dated 1174 which records a dispute involving her son "comitem de Brenna Herardum" which was witnessed by “Erardus nepos eius de Chacenaio[59].  What supports this possible interpretation is that the wife of Anseric [II] was named Humbeline, as shown by the charter dated 22 Feb 1119 under which "Ansericus de Cacennaco…uxoris Hubeline…filio meo Jacobo" donated property to the abbey of Molesme[60].  Another interesting observation is that the sister of Humbeline de Baudémont married Hugues Seigneur de Montréal, the possible brother of Anséric [II], duplicate brothers/sisters marriages being relatively frequent at the time.  However, there are two problems with this possible interpretation of the 1174 document.  Firstly, a chronological difficulty is suggested by the birth of Humbeline’s son by her supposed first marriage before 1119, Anseric’s death in 1137, and the supposed birth of several children by her second marriage before 1147.  Secondly, the more natural interpretation of the 1174 document is that Erard de Chacenay was nepos of Erard de Brienne because he was the son of the latter’s sister.  As discussed in more detail below, this latter interpretation also best explains another charter dated 1146 as well as the introduction of the name Erard into the family of the seigneurs de Chacenay.  If that second interpretation is correct, there were two different individuals named Humbeline, one married to Anseric de Chacenay and the other to Gauthier de Brienne.]  "Matris mee" is recorded as present in the charter dated 1166 of "Erardus Brenensis comes"[61].  "E Brenensium comes" donated property to Basse-Fontaine "matre mea mediante actum fuisse" by charter dated 1166[62].  Neither charter names the mother of Comte Erard, but they show that she survived her husband.  Gauthier must therefore have repudiated Humbeline before his marriage to Adelais, who is named in a charter dated 1147 as his wife (see below). 

m [secondly/thirdly] (before 1147) ADELAIS, daughter of ---.  "G comes Brene" donated property to "ecclesie Sancte Marie de Rameruco" with the consent of "uxoris Adelisis, Erardi, Andreæ filium meorum atque Marie filie mee" by charter dated 1147[63].  "Walterus comes Brenensis" made donations to the priory of Jully-les-Nonnains with the consent of "Adelaidis uxor suæ et filiorum meorum Arardi et Andree et filiarum mearum Marie et Helvidis" by charter dated [1150][64]

Comte Gauthier [II] & his [first/second] wife had nine children [this document assumes that Humbeline was the mother of all of Gauthier’s children, in line with the most natural interpretation of the various charters which are quoted here.  If Humbeline was the same person as the widow of Anseric [II] Seigneur de Chacenay, several of the older children shown here must have been born from Gauthier’s first marriage.]: 

1.         [AGNES ([1122/25]-after [1191]).  "Jacobus dominus de Cachennai", with the consent of "Agnetis uxoris mee", made donations to Basse-Fontaine on the suggestion of "Galteri Brenensium comitis et matris, uxoris eius, domine Agnetis de Baldimento et domine mee A Brenensium comitisse" by charter dated 1146[65].  The parentage of the wife of Jacques Seigneur de Chacenay is suggested by this document dated 1146.  It is also indicated by the charter dated 1174 under which the bishop of Troyes confirmed his judgment relating to "villa de Prait" which names her supposed brother "comitum de Brena Herardum" and is witnessed by "Andreas frater comitis, Erardus nepos eius de Chacenaio"[66].  One of the interpretations of this document is that "Erardus nepos eius [=of Erard [II] Comte de Brienne] de Chacenaio" was the nephew of Comte Erard because he was the son of his sister.  Another possible interpretation of the 1174 document, as explained in more detail above, is that Erard de Chacenay was "nepos" of Erard [II] Comte de Brienne because of a relationship through the latter’s mother, Humbeline de Baudément, wife of Gauthier [II] Comte de Brienne.  In that case, Agnes must have been born from an otherwise unrecorded first marriage of her father.  However, this alternative interpretation does not satisfactorily explain the charter dated 1146 nor the entry of the name "Erard" into the Chacenay family after Agnes’s marriage, which certainly suggests that Agnes belonged to the family of the comtes de Brienne.  If Agnes’s parentage is correctly shown in the present document, she must have been one of her parents’ oldest children.  "Agnes domina de Chacennaio…filiis suis Thoma et Ayrardo" made donations to the abbey of Mores by charter dated 1158, confirmed by "Henricus…Trecensis episcopus"[67].  "Agnes domine de Cachenanaio", with the consent of her unnamed children, made donations to Basse-Fontaine for the soul of "domini mei Jacobi…filius meus Erardus…quando perrexit Jerosolimam" by charter dated to [1179/83], witnessed by "Johannes dominus Cachanaii…Henricus de Cachennais et filius eius Johannes"[68].  Her possible second marriage is suggested by the charter dated to [1179/83] under which "Agnes domine de Cachenanaio", with the consent of her unnamed children, made donations to Basse-Fontaine for the soul of "domini mei Jacobi…filius meus Erardus…quando perrexit Jerosolimam", witnessed by "Johannes dominus Cachanaii…"[69].  It is clear that "Jean seigneur de Chacenay" could not have been one of Agnes’s children by her first marriage.  One possible explanation of the charter is therefore that he was Agnes’s second husband, enjoying the title by right of his wife.  The testament of "Agnes…domina Cacenaii", dated to [1191] and made "coram…filiarum mearum M[argareta] domina Chanlotis et H. domina de Durnai", bequeathed land "apud Lusigniacum et apud Montem Susanum", previously held by "Jacobus filius domini Erardi Cacensi", to "filie mee M[argarete] domine Chanlotis", and property "apud Taneileres" to "filie domini H[ugonis] Vendopere" by charter dated to [1191][70]m [firstly] (before 1138) JACQUES Seigneur de Chacenay, son of ANSERIC [II] Seigneur de Chacenay & his wife Humbeline --- (-[1152/58]).  [m secondly JEAN, son of ---.  Seigneur de Chacenay[, de iure uxoris].  1166/1183.] 

2.         GUY de Brienne .  "Comes Brinie…et uxor eius et filii eorum Guido et Eustachius" approved the donation by "Lethericus de Baudimonto" to the Templars at Provins, by charter dated 1133[71].  1143. 

3.         EUSTACHE de Brienne (-after 1133).  "Comes Brinie…et uxor eius et filii eorum Guido et Eustachius" approved the donation by "Lethericus de Baudimonto" to the Templars at Provins, by charter dated 1133[72].  He presumably died young.  He must have been a different person from Eustache, brother of Erard [II] Comte de Brienne, who is shown below, as the second Eustache’s name appears after that of Erard in the charter dated 1166, indicating presumably that he was a younger brother. 

4.         ERARD [II] de Brienne (-8 Feb [1190/91])The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Aerardum comitem et Andream atque Mariam castellanam de Sancto Otmaro cum aliis liberis" as children of "Galterus comes"[73].  He succeeded his father in [1161] as Comte de Brienne

-        see below

5.         EUSTACHE de Brienne (-1166 or after).  "Robertus de Mastoil" donated property to Basse-Fontaine by charter dated 1166 witnessed by "Airaldus Brenensium comes, Eustacius et Andreas fratres eius, vicecomes Odo"[74].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[75], Eustache was possible ancestor of the Seigneurs de Conflans. 

6.         ANDRE de Brienne (-killed in battle Acre Oct 1189)The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Aerardum comitem et Andream atque Mariam castellanam de Sancto Otmaro cum aliis liberis" as children of "Galterus comes"[76].  Seigneur de Ramerupt.
