Brudenell (/ˈbrdənɛl/ BROO-də-nel)[1] was a municipality that held community status in Prince Edward Island, Canada.[2] It was located along the Brudenell and Montague Rivers. Brudenell Point, which is located at the confluence of the two rivers, was the site of the Jean Pierre Roma Acadian settlement in the 18th century. This small portion of Brudenell is now a National Historic Site of Canada called Roma Three Rivers.[3] Before being burned to the ground by the English, among many accomplishments, this French settlement built several significant roads on PEI which are still used today.

Later that same piece of land was resettled, and it was the birthplace in 1829 of father of confederation Andrew Archibald Macdonald.[4]

On September 28, 2018, it was merged with six other municipalities to form the town of Three Rivers.[5]
