  • Notes 
      Robert was born about 1123, the fifth son of Louis VI 'the Fat', king of France, and his second wife Adèle de Savoie. In 1137 he received the county of Dreux as an appanage from his father. He held it until 1184 when he granted it to his son Robert II.

      In 1139 Robert married Agnès de Garlande, widow of Amaury III de Montfort, comte d'Evreux, sire de Montfort, and the daughter of Anceau de Garlande, comte de Rochefort, and a lady of the Rochefort-en-Yvelines family. They had a son Simon who died in childhood. Agnès died in 1143, and about 1144 Robert married Havise de Salisbury, daughter of Walter FitzEdward and Sibyl de Chaorces. Their daughter Adèle would have progeny by each of her four husbands. Havise died in 1152, and soon after Robert married Agnès de Baudement, dame de Braine, de Fère-en-Tardenois, de Nesle, daughter of Gui de Baudement, seigneur de Baudement, and his wife Alix. They had ten children of whom Robert II and two daughters would have progeny. He adopted the arms of his wife, and received the county of Braine-sur-Vesle and the lordships of Fère-en-Tardenois, Pontarcy, Nesle, Longueville, Quincy-en-Tardenois, Savigny, and Baudemont.

      With his brother Louis VII, king of France, Robert participated in the Second Crusade in 1147 and was at the Siege of Damascus in 1148. Before the end of the crusade he returned to France and mounted a conspiracy against his brother the king, in the hope of gaining power. However his actions were successfully countered by Abbé Suger of Saint-Denis, who ensured the preservation of the regency in the absence of the king.

      In 1158 Robert fought against the English and in 1154 he participated in the siege of Séez in Normandy. In 1180 he granted a communal charter to the town of Dreux, and he founded the town of Brie-Comte-Robert which carries his name. He died in 1188, and was buried in the church of Saint-Yved de Braine.
