Adolf of Egmond

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Adolf of Egmond (Grave, January 12, 1438 - Tournai, June 27, 1477) was a Duke of Guelders from 1465–1471 and in 1477.

He was the son of Arnold of Egmond, Duke of Guelders and Catherine of Cleves, daughter of Adolph I, Duke of Cleves.

In the battle of succession for Guelders, he imprisoned in 1465 his own father and became Duke with the support of Philip the Good, who also made him Knight in the Order of the Golden Fleece. In 1468 he won the Battle of Straelen against Cleves, but Charles the Bold reinstated his father Arnold, and Adolf was imprisoned in Hesdin.

After the death of Charles the Bold in 1477, he was liberated by the Flemish.

He died the same year at the head of a Flemish army besieging Tournai, after the States of Guelders had recognized him as Duke.

Adolf married Catharine of Bourbon (1440–1469), daughter of Charles I, Duke of Bourbon, in 1463. They had 2 children :

   * Philippa (1467–1547), married in 1485 René II, Duke of Lorraine (1451–1508)
   * Charles (1467–1538), later Duke of Guelders, married in 1518 with Elisabeth of Brunswick-Lüneburg (1494–1572), daughter of Henry I of Lüneburg.
