Jehanne was born in 1365 to a Burgundian mother who had married a minor French noble living near Montauban. Her mother was horrified at the prevalence of Catherism in the area, but her father didn’t see that as a problem. However, because the area was at that time ceded to the English under the Treaty of Bretigny, her mother was able to convince her father to have her raised in a convent near Dijon.
In 1382, on the advice of her mother’s family, she was married to Perrin de Beaujeu.

Timeline of Activity:
Jehanne's first event was Gulf Wars 2007, but her first SCA experience was the required creation of garb for two adults and two children for most of a week, with a hard deadline and on a shoestring budget. She attended events and meetings sporadically for several years, taking time off to bear two more children and raise them to be fit for company. Jehanne gradually found a growing interest in the skills, knowledge, and experience of daily life for her persona. She began in Northkeep, and she remains in Northkeep.

Lady Jehanne is possibly the most put-together person I've met within the SCA! If there's something that needs done, she can make it happen! She organizes for our barony while also managing her own family (with the help of Perrin de Beaujeu, of course!). She is one of the biggest proponents for everyone participating in some fashion and for full inclusion. Jehanne & Perrin have clearly set an amazing example for Francois de Beaujeu, who is clearly following in their footsteps and is always volunteering. I honestly think we might be completely lost without her & her family!
