Henri II de Brabant, né en 1207, mort à Louvain le 1er février 1248, fut duc de Brabant de 1235 à 1248. Il était fils d'Henri Ier, duc de Brabant, et de Matilde de Boulogne.

A peine né, il fut fiancé à une fille de Philippe de Souabe, roi des Romains et compétiteur d'Othon IV de Brunswick. Son père le donna en otage à plusieurs reprises, et il apparait dans les chartes et diplômes au côtés de son père à partir de 1221. Il fut armé chevalier en 1226. En 1228, il se signala dans une campagne contre l'archevêque de Cologne.

Il succède à son père en 1235. En 1237, il fut impliqué dans la guerre entre l'évêque de Liège et la famille de Limburg, puis dans les luttes d'influence qui se déchénèrent à la mort de l'évêque pour l'élection de son successeur. La guerre ne se termina qu'en 1243. Après cette date, il n'intervint plus dans les affaires de l'Empire, se consacrant à la gestion de son duché.

Henri II et Sophie de Thuringe furent inhumés dans un mausolée situé dans le choeur de l'église de l'abbaye cistercienne de Villers-en-Brabant.

Il épousa en premières noces avant 1215 Marie de Hohenstaufen (1201 † 1235), fille de Philippe de Souabe, roi des Romains et d'Irène Ange. Ils eurent :

  1. Henri III († 1261), duc de Brabant
  2. Philippe, mort jeune
  3. Mathilde (1224 † 1288), mariée en 1237 à Robert Ier de France (1216 † 1250), comte d'Artois, puis en 1254 Guy III de Châtillon († 1289), comte de Saint-Pol
  4. Béatrice (1225 † 1288), mariée en 1241 à Henri Rapse († 1247), landgrave de Thuringe puis roi des Romains, puis en 1247 Guillaume III de Dampierre (1224 † 1251), comte de Flandre
  5. Marie (1226 † 1256), mariée en 1254 à Louis II de Wittelsbach (1229 † 1294), duc de Bavière
  6. Marguerite († 1277), abbesse de Herzogenthal

Veuf, il se remarie vers 1240 à Sophie de Thuringia (1224 † 1275), fille de Louis IV, landgrave de Thuringe, et d'Elisabeth de Hongrie. Ils eurent :

  1. Henri Ier (1244 † 1308), landgrave de Hesse, tige de la maison de Hesse.
  2. Elisabeth (1243 † 1261), mariée en 1254 à Albert Ier (1236 † 1279), duc de Brunswick

Henry I of Brabant (French: Henri I de Brabant, Dutch: Hendrik I van Brabant; 1165 - 5 September 1235), named "The Courageous" Duke of Brabant (from 1183) and Duke of Lower Lotharingia (from 1190) until his death.

[edit] Biography

He was probably born in Leuven. 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 was one of the leaders of the Third Crusade, which he joined in mid-1197. In the October of the same year he took part in the recapture of Beirut and, then moved to Jaffa with the Crusaders: however, before reaching the city he got news of the death of the King of Jerusalem, Henry II of Champagne, and he returned to Acre. Here he acted as regent until the arrival of the new King, Amalric II.

In 1208, after the assassination of Philip of Swabia, King of the Romans, Henry was proposed as successor by King Philip II Augustus. In the war which followed, he reached in Germany emperor Otto IV, but the two were defeated in the Battle of Bouvines.

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.

Henry died at Cologne in 1235. He was buried in St. Peter's chapter church at Leuven where his late Romanesque effigy can still be seen.

[edit] Marriages

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:

1.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

2.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), ancestor of Joan of Boulogne, second wife of John, Duke of Berry

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