    BIOGRAPHY
    Robert II was born about 1154, the eldest surviving son of Robert I, comte de Dreux, du Perche, de Braine-sur-Vesle, and his third wife Agnès de Baudement, dame de Braine, de Fère-en-Tardenois, et de Nesle.

    Robert participated in the Third Crusade, at the Siege of Acre and the Battle of Arsuf. He took part in the war in Normandy against the Angevin kings between 1193 and 1204. Robert had seized the castle of Nonancourt from Richard I of England while he was imprisoned in Germany in late 1193. He also participated in the Albigensian Crusade in 1210. In 1214 he fought alongside King Philippe II August at the Battle of Bouvines.

    About 1178 Robert married Mahaud de Bourgogne, comtesse de Grignon, dame de Vitteaux, widow of Gui I, comte de Nevers et de Tonnerre, and of Guy I (Peter), comte de Nevers, and the daughter of Raymond de Bourgogne, comte de Grignon, seigneur de Vitteaux, and Agnès de Thiern, dame de Montpensier. The marriage ended with separation in 1181 and produced no children. About 1184 Robert married Yolande de Coucy, daughter of Raoul de Coucy, sire de Coucy et Marle, and his first wife Agnes de Hainault. They had five sons and seven daughters, of whom two sons and four daughters would have progeny. Robert died on 28 December 1218, and like his father he was buried in the abbey church of Saint-Yved de Braine.  [1
