About Baudouin de Hainaut, comte de Hainaut

http://genealogics.org/getperson.php?personID=I00050002&tree=LEO

Baudouin de Hainaut Baldwin became Count after the death of his older brother, Arnulf III, Count of Flanders. The family claim to the title Count of Flanders was lost by his brother's death, passing instead to their uncle Robert the Frisian.

Baldwin joined the First Crusade in the company of Godfrey of Bouillon (rather than with Robert II of Flanders, whose family was still at odds with his own), after selling some of his property to the Bishopric of Liège. In 1098 he was sent back to Constantinople with Hugh of Vermandois after the siege of Antioch, to seek assistance from Byzantine emperor Alexius I. However, Baldwin disappeared during a raid by the Seljuk Turks in Anatolia, and was presumably killed. Alan V. Murray, The Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem: A Dynastic History, 1099-1125.

BAUDOUIN de Flandre, son of BAUDOUIN VI Count of Flanders, BAUDOUIN I Comte de Hainaut & his wife Richilde de Mons Ctss de Hainaut ([1056]-killed near Nikaia 1098 after 8 Jun). Guibert describes him as "Balduinus comes de Montibus, Roberti Flandrensis comitis iunioris patrui, filius"[196]. "Balduino frater eius [Arnulphum occiso]" is named in the Cartulaire de Saint-Bertin[197]. He succeeded his brother in 1071 as BAUDOUIN II Comte de Hainaut et de Valenciennes. By agreement at Liège 1071, procured by Emperor Heinrich IV King of Germany with the aim of confirming the status of the counties of Hainaut and Valenciennes as imperial fiefs, Baudouin's mother (on his behalf) surrendered the two counties to the emperor, who granted them to the bishop of Liège. The bishop then granted the counties to Godefroi III "le Bossu" Duke of Lower Lotharingia, who in turn granted them back to Baudouin and his mother[198]. This process also ensured imperial protection for Hainaut as well as comte Baudouin III's succession, which no doubt would otherwise have been threatened by his uncle Robert I Count of Flanders. "Balduinus, Valenciarum comes, filius Balduini junioris" confirmed the purchase by the abbot of Hasnon of two mills, for the souls of "patris mei Balduini et matris mee Ricildis", by charter dated 1087[199]. Comte Baudouin joined the contingent of Godefroi de Bouillon Duke of Lower Lotharingia (avoiding that of Robert I Count of Flanders) on the First Crusade in 1096, selling the castle of Couvin to Otbert Bishop of Liège to raise funds. William of Tyre names "Baudoin comte de Hainaut" among those who left on the First Crusade with Robert Count of Flanders[200]. He took part in the siege of Antioch in 1098. He was sent with Hugues Comte de Vermandois on a mission to Emperor Alexios I, but was surprised in a Turkish ambush near Nikaia and disappeared, presumed killed[201].

m (1084) IDA de Louvain, daughter of HENRI [II] Comte de Louvain & his wife Adela [in der Betuwe] (-1139). The Chronicon Huberti names "Ida" wife of "Balduinum comitem Montensem" but does not give her origin[202]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the marriage in 1084 of "Idam filiam Henrici Lovaniensis" and "comes Montensis Balduinus"[203]. Albert of Aix records that "la noble épouse de Baudouin comte de Hainaut" wept bitterly for the death of Arnoul [II] de Oudenarde "ce jeune homme qui l'avait accompagnée dans son voyage de France à Jerusalem", in a passage probably dated to [1104/05][204]. He does not specify which Baudouin, but it appears more likely that the text refers to the widow of count Baudouin II than to the young wife of count Baudouin III. If this is correct, it is surprising that the passage does not specify that her husband was dead. On the other hand, the date is early for the marriage of the younger count and in any case no other record has been identified which corroborates that Baudouin III was in Palestine at this time. The report is probably garbled.

Comte Baudouin II & his wife had nine children:

1. IDA de Hainaut ([1085]-after [1105]). The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis refers to "sororem Balduini comitis Hainoensis" as wife of "Thomam de Marla"[205]. The Chronicon Hanoniense refers to a second unnamed sister of "comitis Hainoniensis" who married "Thome de Marla"[206]. The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.

m ([1100], repudiated) as his first wife, THOMAS [I] Comte d´Amiens, Seigneur de Coucy et de Marle, son of ENGUERRAND [I] Comte d´Amiens, Seigneur de Coucy et de Boves & his wife Ada de Marle [Roucy] ([1073]-[1130/31]).

2. [daughter . The Liber de Restauratione Sancti Martini Tornacensis names "filio suo [=Gualterus] Teoderico", specifying that he married "sororem Balduini comitis Montensis"[207]. The text does not specify which "Balduini comitis Montensis" is intended. However, if Thierry's date of death is correct as shown above, it is likely that the marriage took place only shortly before this date. If that is correct, then the text most probably refers to Count Baudouin III, who succeeded his father in 1098. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[208], Thierry's wife was Richildis, daughter of Baudouin III Comte de Hainaut, who later married Everard [II] Raoul Châtelain de Tournai. However, this is chronologically impossible (assuming that Thierry did die before 1106) as Baudouin III's marriage is dated to [1107].

m THIERRY d'Avesnes Seigneur de Mortagne, son of WAUTIER [I] d'Oisy, Seigneur d'Avesnes, de Condé et de Leuze & his wife Ade [Ide] de Mortagne (-[before 1106]).]

3. BAUDOUIN de Hainaut (1088-1120). The Chronicon Hanoniense names "primogenitus Balduinus…secundus Arnulphus" as sons of "Balduino comiti Hanoniensi"[209]. He succeeded his father in 1098 as BAUDOUIN III Comte de Hainaut.

4. ARNOUL de Hainaut (-after 1117). The Chronicon Lætiense names "Arnulpho, fratri comitis de Hainau Balduini" and his wife "Beatricem filiam [Waltero de Aat] et Ade [filiam] Eustacii del Rues"[210]. The Chronicon Hanoniense names "primogenitus Balduinus…secundus Arnulphus" as sons of "Balduino comiti Hanoniensi"[211].

7. HENRI de Hainaut (-after 1096). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. 1096.

8. GUILLAUME de Hainaut (-after 1117). A charter dated 1117 records the donation by "comite Balduino", with the consent of "uxore sua Iola et filio suo Balduino…prefati comites fratres Ernulfus et Willelmus", of "allodium de Oberceiis" to the abbey of Saint-Denis en Broqueroie[212].

9. RICHILDIS de Hainaut ([1095]-after 1118). The Chronicon Hanoniense names "Richeldis" as daughter of "Balduino comitis Hanoniensis" and wife of "comiti Montisforti"[213]. Orderic Vitalis names "Richenda" as wife of Amaury de Montfort, but does not give her origin[214].

m ([1115], divorced 1118) AMAURY [III] Seigneur de Montfort, son of SIMON Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury & his third wife Agnès d'Evreux (-[18/19] Apr after 1136, bur Abbaye de Haute-Bruyère). He succeeded as Comte d'Evreux.

The Chronicon Hanoniense names "Alidis" as daughter of "Balduino comitis Hanoniensis" and wife of "Hugoni de Ruminio"[216], which must be a mistake for "Nicholai". 1153.

-------------------- Boudewijn II (± 1056 – overleden in Syrië, 1098), was graaf van Henegouwen van 1071 tot aan zijn dood. Hij was de tweede zoon van Boudewijn VI van Vlaanderen en Richilde van Henegouwen, en volgde zijn oudere broer Arnulf op, die sneuvelde in de Slag bij Kassel op (22 februari 1071). Als gevolg van deze slag moest Boudewijn Vlaanderen afstaan aan Robrecht I de Fries. Hij slaagde erin Henegouwen te behouden voor zichzelf en zijn moeder Richildis, dankzij de steun van de Luikse prins-bisschop Theoduinus (1048-1076), van wie zij voortaan Henegouwen in leen hielden.

Tot 1076 regeerde Boudewijn II onder het regentschap van zijn moeder, daarna steeds meer zelfstandig. Zijn pogingen om het graafschap Vlaanderen te heroveren mislukten bij herhaling. In 1096 vertrok Boudewijn naar de Eerste Kruistocht, tijdens dewelke hij in Syrië werd vermoord, kort na de inname van Antiochië. Zijn zoon Boudewijn volgde hem op.
