Only child and heiress of Pierre de Bretagne, Jehanne became Countess of Léon and Saint-Sauvere in her own right at the young age of six when her father died. Pierre was the third son of John II, Duke of Brittany and Princess Beatrice of England. Jehanne's mother was Eleanor, youngest daugter of Louis IX of France and Margaret of Province.

Willful, fickle, and restless, Jehanne is accustomed to being placed on a high pedestal. She was a ward of her grandfather, John de Bretagne, until 1305. He was killed during the celebrations surrounding the coronation of Pope Clement V. John was leading the pope's horse through the crowd. So many spectators had piled atop the walls that one of them crumbled and collapsed right on top of the unfortunate duke. At the age of seven Jehanne's wardship transferred to her uncle, Arthur, Duke of Brittany but due to Jehanne's dislike of her uncle's second wife, Yolande of Dreux, the young Countess spent most of her time with her aunt, Blanche, in the county of Artois.

While she did not have the fleur de lis on both sides of the family, she was the second cousin of King Philippe IV of France and King Edward II of England.
