About Godfried III van Leuven (Reginar), hertog van Neder-Lotharingen

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godefroid_III_de_Louvain

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

Als zoon van Godfried II van Leuven, volgde hij nog in de wieg zijn vader op (vanwaar de bijnaam Dux in cunis, "de hertog in de wieg"). Hij beëindigde de Grimbergse Oorlogen door in 1159 de motte van Grimbergen te laten afbranden. Hij veroverde ook de graafschappen Aarschot (vóór 1179), Geldenaken (1184) en Duras (1189).

Zijn huwelijk met Margaretha van Limburg (1155) moest een einde stellen aan de strijd met het hertogdom Limburg. Toen Margaretha in 1172 overleed, hertrouwde hij met Imena, een dochter van graaf Lodewijk I van Loon. Als compensatie van de verdediging van Jeruzalem tegen de inval van de Egyptische sultan Saladin (1183/1184) werd zijn zoon Hendrik I van Brabant door keizer Frederik Barbarossa in het landgraafschap Brabant tot hertog verheven.

Een andere zoon van hem, Albert van Leuven, werd bisschop van Luik

Na zijn dood trad zijn weduwe Imena in het klooster. Zij werd nog vóór 1203 abdis van Munsterbilzen.

Godfrey III of Leuven

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Godfrey III (died August 21, 1190) was count of Leuven (or Louvain), landgrave of Brabant, margrave of Antwerp, and duke of Lower Lorraine (as Godfrey VIII) from 1142 to his death.

He was the son of Godfrey II and Lutgarde of Sulzbach. He was still an infant at his succession (therefore called dux in cunis) of which a few Brabantian vassals sought to take advantage to get independent from the duke (Wars of Grimbergen, 1141-1159). On 30 March 1147, Godfrey was present at the coronation of Henry Berengar, son of Conrad III of Germany, in Aachen. When Conrad left on Crusade, war began anew in 1148. Peace was elusive until the election of Conrad's successor, Frederick Barbarossa. By marriage to Margaret, daughter of Henry II of Limburg, Godfrey united two powerful and antagonistic houses in the region.

In 1159 Godfrey ended the war with the Berthout, lords of Grimbergen, by burning their impressive motte at Grimbergen. In 1171, Godfrey was at war with Hainaut, but was defeated. In 1179, he gave his son Henry in marriage to a niece of Philip of Alsace, Count of Flanders.

Between 1182 and 1184 Godfrey went on a Jerusalem campaign. In the interim, Barbarossa granted Henry the title "Duke of Brabant". Godfrey died in 1190, on 10 or 21 August. He left an increased territory and built the fortress of Nedelaer (near Vilvoorde). The ducal title was transmitted to his son at the Diet of Schwäbisch Hall (September 1190).

Gottfried III. (Löwen)

aus Wikipedia, der freien Enzyklopädie

Wechseln zu: Navigation, Suche

Gottfried III. († 11. oder 21. August 1190) war ab 1142 Graf von Löwen, Landgraf von Brabant, (als Gottfried VIII.) Herzog von Niederlothringen und Markgraf von Antwerpen.

Er war der Sohn von Gottfried II. und Luitgard von Sulzbach. Beim Tod seines Vaters war er noch ein Kind, was einige Brabanter Vasallen dazu brachte, die Unabhängigkeit für sich zu erlangen (Kriege von Grimbergen). Die Auseinandersetzung endete mit dem Niederbrennen der Motte Grimbergen 1159.

Am 30. März 1147 nahm Gottfried an der Krönung von Heinrich-Berengar, dem Sohn Konrads III. in Aachen teil. 1148 brach der Krieg – nach Konrads Abreise auf den Zweiten Kreuzzug – erneut aus, der erst mit der Wahl von Konrads Nachfolger Friedrich Barbarossa beendet wurde. Seine Ehe mit Margarete, der Tochter Heinrichs II. von Limburg, des ehemaligen Gegners seines Vaters, verbündete Gottfried die mächtigsten Familien der Region miteinander.

1171 unterlag er in einem Krieg gegen den Grafen von Hennegau. 1179 verheiratete er seinen Sohn Heinrich I. mit einer Nichte Philipps von Elsass, des Grafen von Flandern.

Von 1182 bis 1184 war Gottfried auf einer Pilgerfahrt nach Jerusalem. In der Zwischenzeit ernannte Friedrich Barbarossa seinen Sohn stellvertretend für ihn zum Herzog von Brabant. Im September 1190 wurde der Herzogstitel auf dem Reichstag von Schwäbisch Hall auf seinen Sohn übertragen.
