History of Brie-Comte-Robert
During the construction of a new industrial area, sites dating from Prehistory to the end of Antiquity were discovered. The excavations of 2008 demonstrated that these vestiges date from the beginning of the second Iron Age. It was in the 12th century that Robert I of Dreux, the fourth son of King Louis VI the Fat, held the seigneury of Brie. He built in the 13th century the most significant monument of the city in the Middle Ages, the castle-fortress. It rose to the north of the city and was one of the best strongholds in the region. The town bought it in 1923 and it was listed as a historic monument in 1925. The 19th century in Brie was marked by the prosperity of its industrial activities, particularly following the creation of the gas factory. Named locally Brie, Brie-Comte-Robert was the historic capital of French Brie. Currently, it is the 19th most populous commune in Seine-et-Marne.
