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

Henry I, Count of Guelders (1117 - 1182) was Count of Guelders from 1131 until 1182. He was a son of Gerard II of Guelders and Ermgard of Zutphen.

In 1138 Hendrik inherited the Duchy of Zutphen from his mother.

Hendrik was under tremendous pressure from the Bishopric of Utrecht and the Duchy of Holland, and was forced by Holland to negotiate a treaty with the city of Utrecht; this led to a problematic relation with the Bishop of Utrecht.

In 1135 Hendrik married Agnes of Arnstein, daughter of count Louis III of Arnstein. Hendrik died in 1182 and was succeeded by his son Otto I of Guelders. He is buried in Kloosterkamp. -------------------- Henry I, Count of Guelders (1117 - 1182) was Count of Guelders from 1131 until 1182. He was a son of Gerard II of Guelders and Ermgard of Zutphen.
