a. Note:   Marie de Champagne From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia\ Marie of France, or Marie Capet, Countess of Champagne (1145 � March 11, 1 198), was the elder daughter of Louis VII of France and his first wife, El eanor of Aquitaine. She was an older sister of Alix of France. She was an older paternal half- sister to Marguerite of France, Alys, Countess of the Vexin, Phil ip II of France and Agnes of France. She was also an older maternal half-s ister to William, Count of Poitiers, Henry the Young King, Matilda of Engl and, Richard I of England, Geoffrey II, Duke of Brittany, Leonora of Engla nd, Joan of England and John of England. Her parents' marriage was annulled in 1152, and the custody of Marie and h er sister Alix was awarded to their father, King Louis. Their mother Elean or remarried to King Henry II of England, and so left France. In 1160, wh en her father King Louis married Adele of Champagne, he betrothed both Mar ie and Alix to Adele's brothers. After her betrothal, Marie was sent to t he abbey of Avenay in Champagne for her education. In 1164, Marie married Henry I, Count of Champagne. They had four children : Scholastique of Champagne (died 1219), married William V of Macon Henry II (1166�1197) Marie of Champagne (died 1204), married Baldwin I of Constantinople Theobald (1179�1201) Marie was left as Regent for Champagne when Henry I left on a pilgrima ge to the Holy Land. While her husband was gone, Marie's father died and h er half-brother Philippe became king. He confiscated the dower lands of h is mother Adele (also Marie's sister-in-law) and then married Isabel le of Hainaut, who had been previously betrothed to Marie's eldest son. Th is prompted Marie to join a party of disgruntled nobles -- including Que en Adele and the archbishop of Reims -- in plotting against Philippe. Even tually, relations between Marie and her royal brother improved. Her husba nd returned from the Holy Land, but died almost immediately. Now a widow w ith four young children, Marie considered marrying Philip of Flanders, b ut the engagement was broken off suddenly for unknown reasons. After Henry I's death in 1181, Marie acted as regent from 1181 to 1187, wh en her son Henry came of age. However, Henry II left to go on Crusade, a nd so Marie once again served as regent in his absence from 1190 to Henry 's death in 1197. She retired to the nunnery of Fontaines-les-Nones near M eaux, and died there in 1198. Marie is remembered today mainly for her role in the heresy that was the t arget of the Albigensian Crusade. She was also a patron of literature, inc luding Andreas Capellanus, who served in her court, and Chr�etien de Troye s. She was literate in French and Latin and maintained her own library.
