Isabelle was first married King John of England. Her first betrothal is confirmed by Ralph of Coggeshall who records that in 1202 John King of England made war against "comitem de MarchisÖHugonem cognomento Brun et fratrem eius comitem de Eu" who had rebelled against him "pro filia comitis Engolismi, quam Hugo prśdictus prius affidaverat" [Stevenson, J. (ed.) (1875) Radulphi de Coggeshall Chronicon Anglicanum (London) ("Ralph of Coggeshall"), p. 135]. The Continuator of Florence of Worcester records the marriage "IX Kal Sep" (circa 1200) of King John and "Isabellam filiam Engolisimi comitis" and their coronation together "VIII Id Oct" in London [Florentii Wigornensis Monachi Chronicon, Continuatio, p. 164].

Although betrothed to Joan of England, daughter of King John and his wife Isabelle comtessa d'AngoulÍme, Hugeus married Joan's countess mother, Isabelle, the widow of King John. Matthew Paris records that the king "consilio regis Francorum" married "Isabel filiam comitis Engolismi...Hugo cognomento Brunus comes Marchiś" in 1200 and her consecration as queen "dominica proxima ante festum Sancti Dionisii apud Westmonasterium" Her origin and second marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1224 under which "Ugo de Leziniaco comes Marchiś et Engolismś et Ysabella uxor eiusÖregina Angliś" confirmed rights granted by "bonś memoriś Ademaro comite Engolismś patre eiusdem dominś Ysabellś" to Vindelle [Saint-Amand-de-Boixe 304, p. 272]. Matthew Paris records her death, when he specifies that she was the wife of Hugues Comte de la Marche [Matthew Paris, Vol. IV, 1242, p. 253].
