About Rainer III Count of Hainault (de Lorraine), III

Ben M. Angel note:

Original death location was mentioned as Pilsen within the present Czech Republic. However, Pilsen as a city was not founded for more than another 250 years. As such, I've removed Pilsen as the death location, and left it within the Herzogtum Bohmen (technically part of the entity that would become known as the Holy Roman Empire in the 12th century, but very much an autonomous state within the Empire).

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

Reginar III (c. 920-973) was Count of Hainaut from 940 to 958

He was born in Brabant as the son of Reginar II, Count of Hainaut.

Together with his brother Rodolphe, he took part in the rebellion of his uncle Gilbert, Duke of Lorraine. When Gilbert was killed in 939, Regnier had to pledge fealty to King Otto the Great.

He then allied himself with King Louis IV of France, but King Otto sent duke Hermann of Swabia to quell the rebels in 944.

Otto appointed Conrad the Red as duke of Lotharingia, who tried to diminish the power of Reginar. However, when Conrad rose against Otto, Reginar supported him. In an anarchic situation, Reginar appropriated the dowry of Queen Gerberge, Otto's sister and mother of the French king, and also church property.

In 953, Bruno, Archbishop of Cologne, who had also been appointed duke of Lotharingia, restored order and defeated Reginar.

As Reginar refused to submit, he was exiled to Bohemia, where he died.

Reginar III., genannt Langhals († zwischen 971 und 997), aus der Familie der Reginare war Graf von Hennegau. Er war der Sohn des Grafen Reginar II. und wurde im Jahr 931 dessen Nachfolger.

Im Jahr 953 verschwor er sich gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder Rudolf, dem Grafen im Haspengau und im Maasland, gegen Konrad den Roten, der von seinem Schwiegervater, dem Kaiser Otto I., zum Herzog von Lothringen ernannt worden war. Ziel der Verschwörung war, Konrad absetzen zu lassen. In der Tat verlor Konrad sein Herzogtum im Jahr 954.

Da Reginar sich aber dem Nachfolger Konrads, dem Bruder des Kaisers und Kölner Erzbischof Brun, ebenfalls widersetzte, wurde er von Brun im Jahre 957 geschlagen und zusammen mit seinem Bruder Rudolf nach Böhmen verbannt. Seine Familiengüter wurden konfisziert; seine Söhne Reginar IV. und Lambert I. der Bärtige flohen ins Westfrankenreich an den Hof des Karolinger-Königs Lothar.

Nach Reginars Absetzung wurde der Hennegau in die Grafschaften Bergen und Valenciennes aufgeteilt; Bergen ging an den Grafen Amalricus, Valenciennes an den späteren Herzog Gottfried I. von Niederlothringen.
