Here is a quote from Victor Hugo's novel:
"Jean Valjean came from a poor peasant family of Brie. He had not learned to read in his childhood. When he reached man's estate, he became a tree-pruner at Faverolles."
The village of Faverolles is situated in the Department of Aisne, in the region of Picardy, in the country of France. An area of the department of Aisne was historically part of the region of Brie. This northern part of Brie was also called 'Brie pouilleuse'.
