    John, byname JOHN OF BRIENNE, French JEAN DE BRIENNE (b. c. 1148--d.March 1237, Constantinopl e), count of Brienne who became titular king ofJerusalem (1210-29) and Latin emperor of Const antinople (1231-37).

    A penniless younger son of the French count Erard II of Brienne and Agnesof Montbéliard, Joh n passed most of his life as a minor noble untilbefriended by King Philip II Augustus of Fran ce, who arranged for him tomarry Mary (Marie) of Montferrat, queen of the crusader state ofJe rusalem, in 1210. John reached the Palestinian town of Acre on Sept.13, 1210, married Mary th e following day, and was crowned at Tyre onOctober 3. Mary died in 1212, and John was named r egent for their infantdaughter, Yolande de Brienne, who inherited the crown as Isabella II. I n1214 John married Princess Stephanie of Armenia, daughter of the Armenianking Leo II, and la ter had a son by her.

    As regent, John arranged a five-year truce with al-Malik al-'Adil, sultanof Egypt and Syria , in July 1212, and during the truce he persuaded PopeInnocent III to launch the Fifth Crusad e in support of his daughter'skingdom.

After quarrelling withthe crusade leade r, the cardinal legate Pelagius, John left Egypt inFebruary 1220, returning in July 1221 to w itness the humiliating defeatof the crusaders and the abandonment of the siege of Damietta.

Immediately following themarriag e, however, Frederick began to contest these rights.

Crowne d in 1231, John helped fendoff attacks by the Bulgarian tsar Ivan Asen II and the Nicaean emp erorJohn III Vatatzes, but shortly before his death he was forced to appealto the West for he lp.
