Besides the Lady of Anet, we know that Françoise de Brézé Countess of Maulevrier (ca. 1518-1574) is another daughter of her actual marriage, who married Robert IV de La Marck Duke of Bouillon Seigneur of Sedan and Marshal of France - and had descendants.

We know too that her father was Jean de Poitiers Seigneur de Saint Vallier (ca. 1475-1539), whose parents were Aymar de Poitiers and Jeanne de la Tour d'Auvergne (b. 1445); so it is surprising that neither of these people have profiles.
