Marie Henri d'Arbois de Jubainville (December 5, 1827 - February, 1910), was a Frenchmarker historian and philologist.

He was born at Nancy, Francemarker. In 1851 he left the √Čcole des Chartes with the degree of palaeographic archivist. He was placed in control of the departmental archives of Aubemarker, and remained in that position until 1880, when he retired on a pension.

He published several volumes of inventorial abstracts, a R√©pertoire arch√©ologique du d√©partement in 1861; a valuable Histoire des ducs et comtes de Champagne depuis le VIe si√®cle jusqu'√† la fin du XIe, which was published between 1859 and 1869 (8 volumes), and in 1880 an instructive monograph, Les Intendants de Champagne. Already he had become attracted to the study of the ancient inhabitants of Gaul; in 1870 he brought out an √Čtude sur la d√©clinaison des noms propres dans la langue franque √† l'√©poque m√©rovingienne; and in 1877 a learned work on Les Premiers habitants de l'Europe (2nd edition in 2 vols. 1889 and 1894).

Next he concentrated his efforts on the field of Celtic languages, literature and law, in which he soon became an authority. Appointed in 1882 to the newly founded professorial chair of Celtic at the Coll√®ge de Francemarker, he began the Cours de litt√©rature celtique in 1908 extended to twelve volumes. For this he himself edited the following works: Introduction √† l'√©tude de la litt√©rature celtique (1883); L'√Čpop√©e celtique en Irlande (1892); √Čtudes de droit celtique (1895); and Les Principaux auteurs de l'Antiquit√© √† consulter sur l'histoire des Celtes (1902).

He was among the first in France to study the most ancient monuments of Irish literature with a solid philological preparation and without prejudice.
