About Arnulf "Gandensis" van Holland

Arnulf, also known as Aernout or Arnold succeeded his father in 988 as Count in Frisia. He was born in 951 in Ghent and because of this he is also known as Arnulf of Ghent. Arnulf was the son of Dirk II, Count of Holland and Hildegard, thought to be a daughter of Arnulf of Flanders.

Family

In May 980 Arnulf married Lutgard of Luxemburg, a daughter of Siegfried, Count of Luxemburg. The couple had (at least) two sons; the future Count Dirk III and Siegfried (also known as Sicco). Arnulf, his wife and his sons were all buried at Egmond.

He also had a daughter, Adelina of Holland, who was married to Baldwin II, Count of Boulogne and Enguerrand I, Count of Ponthieu.

On 20 September 993 Liutgard donated her properties at Rugge to Saint Peter's abbey of Ghent for the soul of her husband. In June 1005 she made peace with the West-Frisians through mediation by Emperor Henry.

--------------------

NOTE:Hij is gesneuveld in een veldtocht tegen de Friezen aan de Maas, Graaf in het Westfriese gebied van Maas tot Vlie (06-05-988). Hij breidde zijn gebied naar het zuiden uit.

In mei 980 huwde Arnulf met Liutgard van Luxemburg, de dochter van Siegfried, Graaf van Luxemburg en Hedwig. Haar jongere zuster Kunigunde was de echtgenote van Hendrik II van Duitsland. Uit het huwelijk met Liutgard zijn twee kinderen bekend, Dirk, die hem als Dirk III opvolgt en Sicco, die met Thietburg huwde. In 975 wordt Arnulf samen met zijn vader Dirk II in een aantal oorkondes als getuige vermeld. Op het moment dat Arnulf de graventitel kreeg, vermoedelijk bij gelegenheid van zijn huwelijk in 980, was zijn vader nog in leven. In 981 vertrok hij met 12 man naar Italië om de Duitse Otto II te begeleiden bij diens kroning tot keizer. Op 18 september 993 sneuvelt Graaf Arnulf te Winkel aan de monding van de Maas in de strijd tegen de West-Friezen. Volgens de Egmondse gravenregisters zou de strijd waarbij Arnulf het leven liet tegen woeste Friezen gevoerd zijn. In deze latere toevoeging zouden Westfriezen bedoeld worden. Melis Stoke laat deze strijd bij Winkel plaatsvinden. De twisten tussen de Hollandse graven (die toen overigens nog als Fries werden aangeduid) moesten op dat moment echter nog plaatsvinden. Daarom is het aannemelijker dat deze strijd niet bij Winkel maar aan de monding van de Oude Rijn heeft plaatsgevonden. Anderen plaatsen de strijd weer aan de monding van de Maas. Arnulf werd bijgezet in de abdij van Egmond. Om onduidelijke redenen werd hij daar later als heilige vereerd.

Aarnout (Arnulf) "Gandensis" van HOLLAND, geb. Gent ca. 851, verm. met zijn ouders (26-10-970), komt, evenals zijn vader, in tal van Vlaamse oorkonden voor, graaf van een gebied dat later Holland heette (988-993), heerste ook over de regio West-Friesland, gesneuveld aan de Maasmonding (ook verm. als gesneuveld te Winkel in West-Friesland) 18-9-993, begr. Egmond (abdijkerk), tr. 1e N.N., tr. 2e mei 980

getrouwd met:

Liutgard van LUXEMBURG, geb. Brussel ca. 855, na het overl. van haar echtgenoot regentes van haar zoon, zij overl. 13-5 na 1005, begr. Egmond (abdijkerk, naast haar man).

-----------------------------------------

Hij schonk een deel van zijn bezit in Schieland aan de kloosterkerk te Egmond, waaronder Bergan (thans Hillegersberg) en Schie (thans Overschie), mogelijk in verband met de droogmakingsinspanningen van de Egmondse monniken in het Hollandse veengebied en breide zijn gebied naar het zuiden uit; vertrok in 981 met 12 man naar Italie om Otto II te begeleiden bij diens kroning tot keizer; Aarnout was de eerste graaf die oorlogen voerde tegen de opstandige West-Friezen en in 993 viel hij met zijn leger het gebied van de West-Friezen binnen; bij Winkel werd hij op 18 september verslagen en sneuvelde in de strijd (volgens andere lezingen sneuvelde hij aan de Maasmonding); om onduidelijke redenen werd hij later als heilige vereerd.

Zijn vrouw Liutgard kon alleen met behulp van de koning het graafschap voor haar zoontje bewaren; schonk voor het zieleheil van haar gemaal het bezit Rugge aan de St.-Pietersabdij te Gent (20-9-993); zij verzoende zich in 1005 met de opstandige West-Friezen.

Career

Arnulf is first mentioned (together with his parents) in 970. Like his father, his name appears in numerous Flemish documents at the time. In 983 Arnulf accompanied Emperor Otto II and future Emperor Otto III on their journey to Verona and Rome. As count he managed to expand his territories southwards. Arnulf donated several properties to Egmond Abbey, amongst others Hillegersberg (which was previously called Bergan, but renamed after Arnulf's mother) and Overschie, which may have been rewards for the land-clearing activities of the monks of Egmond.

Arnulf was the first count to come into conflict with the West-Frisians and in 993 he invaded their territory, but on 18 September of that year he was defeated and killed in a battle near Winkel in West-Friesland. His son Dirk was still a boy at this time, but Arnulf's widow Luitgard managed to retain the county for her son with support from first Emperor Otto III and later her brother-in-law, Emperor Henry II.
