About Hendrik van Leuven, I

Henry I, Duke of Brabant

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Henry I of Brabant (French: Henri I de Brabant, Dutch: Hendrik I van Brabant), named "The Courageous", was (probably) born in 1165 in Leuven and died in the German city of Cologne on September 5, 1235. He became Duke of Brabant in 1183/1184 and succeeded his father as Duke of Lower Lotharingia in 1190. He was the son of Godfrey III of Leuven, Duke of Lower Lotharingia and landgrave of Brabant, and Margaret of Limburg.

He married Maud of Boulogne, daughter of Marie of Boulogne and Matthew of Alsace 1179. He had six children by his first marriage:

Marie (c. 1190 – May 1260), married in Maastricht after May 19, 1214 Otto IV, Holy Roman Emperor, married July 1220 Count William I of Holland

Adelaide (b. c. 1190), married 1206 Arnulf, Count of Loos, married February 3, 1225 William X of Auvergne (c. 1195–1247), married before April 21, 1251 Arnold van Wesemaele (d. aft. 1288)

Margaret (1192–1231), married January 1206 Gerhard III, Count of Guelders (d. October 22, 1229)

Marie, died young

Under Henry I, there was a town policy and town planning. Henry's attention went out to those regions that lent themselves to the extension of his sovereignty and in some locations he used the creation of a new town as an instrument in the political organisation of the area. Among the towns to which the Duke gave city rights and trade privileges was 's-Hertogenbosch.

He was buried in St. Peter's chapter church at Leuven where you can still see his late romanesque effigy.

Heinrich I. (Brabant)

aus Wikipedia, der freien Enzyklopädie

Wechseln zu: Navigation, Suche

Heinrich I., genannt der Mutige (* um 1165; † 5. September 1235 in Köln) war seit 1179 Graf von Brüssel, seit 1183 Herzog von Brabant, sowie seit 1190 Graf von Löwen, Markgraf von Antwerpen, und Herzog von Niederlothringen. Er war der Sohn von Gottfried III., Graf von Löwen und Brüssel, Landgraf von Brabant, Markgraf von Antwerpen und Herzog von Niederlothringen, und Margarete von Limburg

Sein Vater beteiligte ihn früh an den Regierungsgeschäften des Herzogtums, schon 1172 wurde er – an dessen Seite – als Herzog bezeichnet. 1179 heiratete er Mathilde von Boulogne, eine Nichte Philipps von Elsass, Graf von Flandern, und erhielt zu diesem Anlass von seinem Vater die Grafschaft Brüssel. Er hatte mehrere militärische Auseinandersetzungen mit den Grafen von Hennegau und vertrat seinen Vater, als dieser 1182 bis 1184 im Heiligen Land war. Der Kaiser erhob Brabant 1183 zum Herzogtum. 1185 gründete er ’s-Hertogenbosch. Beim Tod seines Vaters 1190 trat er dessen Nachfolge an.

Schnell fand er sich im Gegensatz zu Kaiser Heinrich VI., zuerst anlässlich der Wahl seines Bruders Albrecht zum Bischof von Lüttich (die Auseinandersetzung führte 1192 zur Ermordung des Bischofs, woraufhin sich Brabant und Hennegau vier Jahre lang der Wahl des Nachfolgers widersetzten), des Weiteren dann wegen des englischen Königs Richard Löwenherz, den Herzog Leopold V. von Österreich gefangen genommen und dem Kaiser ausgeliefert hatte: Heinrich VI. wollte ihn an Philipp II.. August von Frankreich weiterreichen, da er die lothringischen Fürsten als pro-englisch ansah. Richard Löwenherz wurde schließlich gegen ein enormes Lösegeld freigelassen.

Auch er zog mit dem Kreuzzug Heinrichs VI. ins Heilige Land, wo er die Städte Sidon und Beirut für die Christen eroberte, musste aber nach Europa zurückkehren, nachdem Kaiser Heinrich 1197 gestorben war. Seine Ehefrau und er unterstützten in der Nachfolgefrage – so wie die meisten norddeutschen Barone – die Wahl des Welfen Otto IV. (der ein Schwiegersohn Heinrichs war), während die Barone Süddeutschlands sich mehrheitlich für den Staufer Philipp von Schwaben, den Bruder des verstorbenen Kaisers, aussprachen.

1204 wechselte Heinrich von Brabant die Seiten und verbündete sich mit Philipp II. von Frankreich und Philipp von Schwaben gegen den Welfen. Nach dem Mord an Philipp 1208 fand er die Aussöhnung mit Otto IV., an dessen Seite er am 27. Juli 1214 in der Schlacht bei Bouvines kämpfte, wo er fast in Gefangenschaft geraten wäre. Wenig später schloss er ein Bündnis mit Friedrich II., wonach seine Regierung in eine friedlichere Politik mündete.

In den Jahren 1217 bis 1218 nahm Heinrich am Kreuzzug von Damiette nach Ägypten teil.

Friedrich II. schickte ihn nach England, um dessen Verlobte Isabella, Tochter des Königs Johann Ohneland nach Deutschland zu holen. Auf dem Rückweg erkrankte er in Köln und starb. Sein Grab befindet sich in der St. Pieterskirche in Löwen.

Hij was de zoon (uit het 1e huwelijk) en erfopvolger van Godfried III. In zijn beleid streefde hij naar een uitbreiding van zijn heerschappij voor het grondgebied tussen Schelde en Rijn en de beheersing van de handelsweg van Brugge naar Keulen. Hij slaagde er niet in het hertogelijk gezag in Neder-Lotharingen te herstellen. Niettemin wist hij zich een machtspositie te veroveren door in de strijd tussen de Welfen en de Hohenstaufen voortdurend van kamp te wisselen. In 1191 slaagde hij erin zijn broer Albert tot bisschop van Luik te laten kiezen. In 1204 ging hij over naar het kamp van de Hohenstaufen en verkreeg hij van de Duitse koning Filips van Zwaben de voogdij over Nijvel en de erkenning van de erfelijkheid van het hertogdom Brabant, ook in vrouwelijke lijn. Tevens werd hij medeheer van Maastricht.

Bij een van zijn invallen in Luik leed hij bij de slag van Steps een zware nederlaag (13 oktober 1213).

De graaf van Vlaanderen viel Brabant binnen en Hendrik werd ertoe verplicht aan diens zijde te strijden in de Slag bij Bouvines. Na de aldaar opgelopen nederlaag verzoende hij zich onmiddellijk met de overwinnaar, de Franse koning Filips August.

Hendrik I was tweemaal gehuwd: eerst (in 1179?) met Mathilde van Boulogne († 1211), daarna (op 22 april 1213) met Maria van Frankrijk, dochter van koning Filips August.

Volgens de overlevering heeft hertog Hendrik I in 1185 de stad 's-Hertogenbosch gesticht. Zijn praalgraf is te vinden in de Leuvense Sint-Pieterskerk, alsook dat van Mathilde van Boulogne en zijn dochter Maria van Brabant.

Henry I of Brabant (French: Henri I de Brabant, Dutch: Hendrik I van Brabant), named "The Courageous", was (probably) born in 1165 in Leuven and died in the German city of Cologne on September 5, 1235. He became Duke of Brabant in 1183/1184 and succeeded his father as Duke of Lower Lotharingia in 1190. He was the son of Godfrey III of Leuven, Duke of Lower Lotharingia and landgrave of Brabant, and Margaret of Limburg.

He married Mathilde of Boulogne (Mathilde of Flanders), daughter of Marie of Boulogne and Matthew of Alsace 1179. He had six children by his first marriage:

Marie (c. 1190 – May 1260), married in Maastricht after May 19, 1214 Otto IV, Holy Roman Emperor, married July 1220 Count William I of Holland

Adelaide (b. c. 1190), married 1206 Arnulf, Count of Loos, married February 3, 1225 William X of Auvergne (c. 1195–1247), married before April 21, 1251 Arnold van Wesemaele (d. aft. 1288)

Mathilde (c. 1200 – December 22, 1267), married in Aachen in 1212 Henry II, Count Palatine of the Rhine (d. 1214), married on December 6, 1214 Floris IV, Count of Holland

His second marriage was at April 22, 1213 in Soissons to Marie, princess of France, daughter of King Philip II of France. They had two children:

Elizabeth (d. October 23, 1272), married in Leuven March 19, 1233 Count Dietrich of Cleves, Lord of Dinslaken (c. 1214–1244), married 1246 Gerhard II, Count of Wassenberg (d. 1255)

Marie, died young

Under Henry I, there was a town policy and town planning. Henry's attention went out to those regions that lent themselves to the extension of his sovereignty and in some locations he used the creation of a new town as an instrument in the political organisation of the area. Among the towns to which the Duke gave city rights and trade privileges was 's-Hertogenbosch.

He was buried in St. Peter's chapter church at Leuven where you can still see his late romanesque effigy. -------------------- Hertog van Nederlotharingen, hertog van Brabant, Duc Begraven in Leuven.
