HistoryEdit

It was the centre of the medieval County of Brienne, whose lords, first counts and eventually dukes, had a claim to the Kingdom of Jerusalem which never materialized, though many claimed the title. The École de Brienne was established in 1730 and remained active until it was closed in 1790. It is currently a museum. Notable students included:

In 1814, it was the site of the Battle of Brienne, when the Sixth Coalition invaded France.
