Historical background


CHAMPAGNE - COUNTY OF BRANCHES - HENRI II

(1180-1197)

In the twelfth century, Provins is a thriving city thanks to the Champagne fairs that allow Flemish and Italian merchants to meet and make exchanges with Europe. Thibaut II (1125-1152) visited the Holy Land. Hugues de Payens in 1125 created the Order of the Temple which is dedicated to the Council of Troyes in 1128. Henry I succeeded Thibaut (1152-1180) and Henri II. After the short reign of Thibaut III (1197-1201), the long reign of Thibaut IV (1201-1253) which enriches Provins. Often opposed to the King of France, the Counts of Troyes and Sens are powerful and turbulent neighbors. Thibaut IV became King of Navarre (1234-1253). Thibaut V (1253-1270) dying leaves a daughter, Jeanne (1274-1305), who married the future Philip IV. Champagne is permanently attached to the kingdom in 1361.
