Reuil-en-Brie is a commune in the Seine-et-Marne department in the Île-de-France region in north-central France.

The settlement grew up around the monastery founded by Rado, a mayor of the palace of Burgundy,[1] in about 630, which from his name was called Radolium.[2] In later times it was a priory of Cluny.

Demographics[edit]

The inhabitants are called Reuillois.
