In the title compound, [PbBr2(C14H12N2)]n, the PbII atom lies on a twofold rotation axis. The N-heterocycle-chelated PbII atom exists in a distorted octahedral geometry owing to two long Pb⋯Br interactions [2.9562 (5) and 3.2594 (5) Å]. These result in a zigzag chain running along the c axis. The lone pair is stereochemically inactive.
