The House of Courtenay is the name of two distinct noble families, both of which descended from Athon. Athon, the first lord of Courtenay (Seigneur de Courtenay), was himself apparently a descendant of the Counts of Sens and from Pharamond, reputed founder of the French monarchy in 420.

In the 12th century, Renaud de Courtenay (d.1190), son of Milo de Courtenay (d.1127), moved to England after quarreling with King Louis VII.
