  • Notes 
    • Nicknamed "Mauclerc." Duke of Brittany, Earl of Richmond, Count of Penthièvre. In 1237 he resigned the duchy of Brittany in favor of his eldest son John, and thereafter styled himself merely Pierre de Braine, Chevalier.

      He was forced to submit to Louis IX and renounce homage to Henry III, after which his English lands were confiscated in January 1235.

      He fought in the crusade against the Albigensians in 1219 and 1226. In 1239 he led a crusade to Palestine. In 1249 he went on crusade with Louis IX. He was wounded in the face at the Battle of Mansourah, and surrendered with the king at Faraskur in April 1250. Shortly thereafter he died at sea.
