Medieval lordship[edit]

In the Middle Ages it was the site of a lordship within the County of Blois and Chartres. The lords descended from the counts of Breteuil, and often also held the position of viscount of Chartres. They participated in the Norman Conquest and the crusades of the 12th century, and were cousins of the dynasty of the Kings of Jerusalem.
