About Gertrude of Saxony

1061-69 Regent Dowager Countess Geertruida von Sachsen of Holland (The Netherlands)

Widow of Floris I and regent for son Dirk V (1061-71 and 1076-91). In 1063 she remarried Robrecht van Flanders - a son Count Bodewijn V - probably to secure her position against the German emperor Heinrich IV and the two acted as co-regents for Dirk and were involved in wars with various neighboring rulers - and in 1070 the county was conquered by the Duke of Brabant.

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

Gertrude of Saxony (also known as Gertrude Billung) (c. 1030 – August 4, 1113), was the daughter of Bernard II, Duke of Saxony and Eilika of Schweinfurt. She married Floris I, Count of Holland (c. 1017 - June 28, 1061) c. 1050, and upon his death, her son Dirk V became Count of Holland. Since he was still young, she became regent.

When Dirk V came into power, William I, Bishop of Utrecht, took advantage of the situation, occupying territory that he had claimed in Holland. Gertrude and her son withdrew to the islands of Frisia (Zeeland), leaving William to occupy the disputed lands.

In 1063 Gertrude married Robert of Flanders (Robert the Frisian), the second son of Baldwin V of Flanders. This act gave Dirk the Imperial Flanders as an appanage - including the islands of Frisia west of the Frisian Scheldt. She and her husband then acted as co-regents for the young count.

She had a total of seven children with Floris I:

Albrecht (b. ca. 1051), a canon in Liege.

Dirk V (ca. 1052, Vlaardingen–17 June 1091).

Pieter (b. ca. 1053), a canon in Liége.

Bertha (ca. 1055–1094, Montreuil-sur-Mer), who married Philip I of France in 1072.

Floris (b. ca. 1055), a canon in Liége.

Machteld (b. ca. 1057)

Adela (b. ca. 1061), who married Count Baudouin I of Guînes.

From her second marriage to Robert I she had five children:

Robert II of Flanders (c. 1065 – October 5, 1111).

Adela (d.1115), who first married king Canute IV of Denmark, and was the mother of Charles the Good, later count of Flanders. She then married Roger Borsa, duke of Apulia.

Gertrude, who married Thierry II, Duke of Lorraine, and was the mother of Thierry of Alsace, also later count of Flanders.

Philip of Loo, whose illegitimate son William of Ypres was also a claimant to the county of Flanders.

Ogiva, abbess of Messines.

Barn: bl.a. Dirk V og Bertha

Gertrud av Sachsen (født circa 1030, død 4. august 1113, nederlandsk Geertruida) var datter av Bernhard II av Sachsen og Eilika av Schweinfurt. Rundt 1050 giftet hun seg med grev Floris I av Holland og da han døde 28. juni 1061 ble hun verge for den nye greven, deres sønn Dirk V.

Ved Dirk den femtes overtagelse av grevskapet utnyttet biskop Vilhelm I av Utrecht muligheten han fikk til å okkupere deler av områder han gjorde krav på i Holland. Vilhelms krav ble bekreftet av to skriftstykker fra keiser Henrik IV (30. april 1064 og 2. mai 1064). De eneste områdene Dirk fikk beholde lå vestenfor Vlie og rundt Rhinens utløp.

Gertrud og Dirk trakk seg tilbake øyene i dagens Zeeland og overlot de omstridte landområdene til okkupanten Vilhelm. I 1063 giftet Gertrud seg på nytt, denne gangen med Boudewijn V av Flanderns nest eldste sønn Robrecht av Flandern, også kjent som «friseren Robrecht». Robrecht ga Dirk det keiserlige Flandern som apanasje, inklusive øyene vest for Schelde i Zeeland.
