In 1209 Erard, with the consent of his unnamed wife, confirmed a donation to Basse-Fontaine by a certain Agnete, specified as domina of Chacenay, probably his grandmother Agnes de Brienne. In July 1219 Erard's cousin, Hervé, Count of Nevers, confirmed a donation Erard had made to the Teutonic Knights. Erard took part in the Fifth Crusade (1217), but was back in Europe by 1220.... He was a patron of the trouvère Guiot de Dijon...
Erard was the second husband of Emmeline (Emelina) de Broyes (died 1249, before April), widow of Eudes II de Champlitte. They were married in 1205. In 1218 she made a joint donation with her husband to Montier-la-Celle. Their eldest son, Erard III [sic], succeeded Erard as sire. Their second son, Huet, died on Crusade in 1249. They also had three daughters: Matilda, who married Guy d'Arcis-sur-Aube; Alix, who succeeded her brother as dame; and Joanna, who is only known from the donation of 1218.
Erard married Emmeline DE BROYES, daughter of Seigneur Hugues III DE BROYES de Châteauvillain et d'Arc-en-Barrois and Isabelle DE DREUX Dame de Baudément, Arc-en-Barrois et Cour-L’Evêque, in 1205. (Emmeline DE BROYES was born in 1178 and died between Jan 1249 and Apr 1249.)
