    Anselme indicates that in (before) 1399 Pierre was married to Marguerite de Chalon in a way that she is not necessarily the mother of Marie. No mention is made of Marie de Dampierre-Namur.

    I did have him as Admiral of France 1408-10, but it seems it was from 1405:
    Pierre de Brebant, dit Clignet, seigneur de Landreville, lieutenant général en Champagne, chambellan du roi, nommé amiral de France en 1405.
    Mosen Arnao de Tria, Lord of Fontenay ...resigned the admiralship, in 1405, in favour of Pierre de Breban, sieur de Landreville, surnamed Clugnet, and called, by Monstrelet, Clugnet de Brabant.
    (The British Admirals: With an Introductory View of the Naval, by Robert Southey, Robert Bell - 1833)
    Reguault de Trie, lord of Fontenay, was admiral of France on the death of the lord de Vicnnc [?], killed at Nicopolls. He resigned, in 1405, in favour of Peter de Breban, lord of Landreville, surnamed Clugnet, and hereafter mentioned, but incorrectly, by the name of Clugnet de Brabant.
    The Clignet de Brebant who commanded 800 troops at Agincourt in 1415?
    Born at Breban, dans le département de la Marne et la région Champagne-Ardenne.
    Even sir Clugnet de Brabant, knight of the household to the duke of Orleans, went to Harfleur with six hundred men at arms at the king's expense. He had lately obtained the office of great admiral of France, with the approbation of sir Regnault do Trio, who had resigned it, in consideration of a very large sum of money which he had received, through the intrigues of the duke of Orleans. But as he was on the point of entering Harfleur, where there were twelve galleys ready for sea, on board of which he meant to embark to make war on the English, and take possession of his new office, he was ordered, in the king's name, not to proceed further, but to return to Paris. Shortly after, by means of the duke of Orleans, Ire married the dowager countess of Bloisf, widow of count Guy do Blois, sister to the count de Namur, who was much irritated thereat ; and because an illegitimate brother of his had consented to the conclusion of this marriage, he had him seined by his men, on the first favourable opportunity, and beheaded, thus making his blood pay for the acts of his will.
    (The Chronicles of Enguerrand de Monstrelet.
    Le 10 mars 1398, Marie de Namur, veuve de Guy, fit relief par Michel de Warisoulx, ... Mais Jeanne de Châlons, dame de Landreville, mère de Clignet,
    (Annales de la Société archéologique de Namur. 1872. Page 433)
    (This Pierre?s dau Marie is said to be the niece of Huguenin (Hugues?) de Chalon.)
    Pierre de Breban, born around 1380 to Breban and death in 1428 at Guingamp, was an Admiral of France.
    It is one of the major generals of the dauphin, the future Charles VII.
    He defeated the English at the battle of the seven Knights on Earth.
    It was a significant person in his time due to his power as his state stretched from Arc-en-Barrois passing by Landreville Breban, or many more that the famous sire de Coucy and his deeds.
    At the battle of Agincourt, he commanded the vanguard and was unable to convince Boucicault attack. He is the inventor, with his comrade Louis Bourdon (or Bosredon) of the strategy of the war of fortresses, which did win the war of hundred years to Charles VII.
