BAUDOUIN de Hainaut, son of BAUDOUIN IV “le Bâtisseur” Comte de Hainaut & his wife Alice de Namur (1150-Mons 17 Dec 1195). The Flandria Generosa names "Balduinus comes Hainonie" as husband of "Margaretam sororem Philippi", specifying that he succeeded his brother-in-law as count of Flanders[499]. He succeeded his father in 1171 as BAUDOUIN V Comte de Hainaut, and as heir to Henri Comte de Namur et de Luxembourg. He supported Philippe II King of France when war broke out with Philippe Count of Flanders over the inheritance of the counties of Vermandois and Valois in 1183[500]. After the unexpected birth in 1186 of Ermesinde, daughter of Henri Comte de Namur et de Luxembourg, the latter revoked his assurance concerning Baudouin's succession in these two counties. In 1188, Comte Henri was obliged to reinstate Baudouin as his heir after a verdict in the latter's favour from Heinrich VI King of Germany. Comte Baudouin attacked Namur, captured Comte Henri and obtained a confirmation of his position from Emperor Friedrich I, who also secretly created him Marquis de Namur. Under a compromise reached in 1190, Baudouin received Namur immediately, and the expectation of Laroche and Durbuy after the death of Henri; the fate of Luxembourg was not mentioned. The creation of the Marquisate of Namur, and the elevation of Baudouin as Marquis de Namur, was announced at Worms in 1190[501]. Although designated as successor in Flanders by his brother-in-law Philippe Count of Flanders, Philippe II King of France claimed in 1191 that Flanders escheated to the French crown on the death of Count Philippe in default of male heirs. The settlement was mediated by the archbishop of Reims and formalised in the Treaty of Arras[502]. Comte Baudouin was eventually enfeoffed as BAUDOUIN VIII Count of Flanders 1 Mar 1192, on payment of 5,000 silver marks to the French king doing homage to Emperor Heinrich VI King of Germany for the imperial part of Flanders[503]. On the death of his wife in 1194, Baudouin lost Flanders which was inherited by their oldest son. The necrology of Brogne records the death "XVI Kal Jan" of "Balduinus comes Hannonie"[504]. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

m (Apr 1169) as her second husband, MARGUERITE de Flandre, daughter of THIERRY I Count of Flanders & his second wife Sibylle d'Anjou ([1145]-15 Nov 1194, Bruges St Donat). The Flandria Generosa names (in order) "Gertrudem et Margaretam" as the two daughters of Count Thierry & his second wife[505]. The Annales Elnonenses records the wife of "Balduinus comes Hainonie" being "sororem [Philippus comes Flandrie]"[506]. The Flandria Generosa specifies that Marguerite married "Radulfo filio predicti comitis Radulfi" who contracted leprosy and from whom she was separated[507]. The Chronicon Hanoniense records the marriage "tempore Paschali mense April 1169" of "Balduinus" and "Margharetam…Mathie comitis Boloniensis sororem"[508]. Her second marriage was arranged by her brother Count Philippe in order to improve relations with the county of Hainaut. She succeeded her brother in 1191 as MARGUERITE I Ctss of Flanders. The Annales Blandinienses record the death in 1194 of "Margareta comitissa Flandriæ"[509]. The Chronicon Hanoniense records the death in 1194 of "comitissa Marghareta" and her burial at "Brugis in monasterio Sancti Donaciani"[510]. The necrology of Brogne records the death "XV Kal Dec" of "Margareta comitissa Hainonensis"[511]. The Flandria Generosa specifies that she was buried in Bruges St Donat[512]. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

Count Baudouin VIII & his wife had seven children:

1. ISABELLE de Hainaut (Valenciennes 23 Apr 1170-Paris 14/15 Mar 1190, bur Notre Dame, Paris). The Chronicon Hanoniense records the birth "mense Aprili 1170" of "filiam Elizabeth" to "Balduinus [et] Margharetam…Mathie comitis Boloniensis sororem"[513]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1191 names "Elizabeth Francie reginam…Hyolenz uxorem Petri Autisiodorensis et Sibiliam domnam Bellioci uxorem Wichardi" as the three daughters of "Balduinus [Haynaco]"[514]. The Chronicon Hanoniense records the betrothal in 1179 of "Elizabeth filia comitis Hanoniensis" and "Henrico filio comitis Trecensis"[515]. The Annales S. Benigni Divisionensis name the wife of Philippe II King of France as "Elisabeth regina que fuit soror Balduini comitis Flandrie", when recording the birth of their son Louis in 1187[516]. Her marriage was arranged by her maternal uncle Philippe Count of Flanders while he was adviser to Philippe II King of France in 1180 after the latter's accession, with Artois as her dowry[517]. She was crowned queen of France 29 May 1180 at the abbaye de Saint-Denis. King Philippe planned to repudiate her in 1186, for lack of a male heir. The Flandria Generosa records the death in 1189 of "Elisabeth Francorum regina" after giving birth to twins, specifying her burial "in eccleisa beatæ Mariæ Parisius"[518]. The Gestis Philippi II Augusti records the death "1189 Id Mar" of "Elysabeth regina uxor Philippi Francorum regis" and her burial "in ecclesiam beatissime virginis Marie Parisius"[519]. The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "II Id Mar" of "Isabel regina Francorum"[520]. Betrothed (1179) to HENRI de Champagne, son of HENRI I "le Libéral" Comte de Champagne & his wife Marie de France (29 Jul 1166-Acre 10 Sep 1197). He succeeded his father in 1181 as HENRI II Comte de Champagne. The Chronicon Hanoniense records the betrothal in 1179 of "Elizabeth filia comitis Hanoniensis" and "Henrico filio comitis Trecensis"[521]. According to Gade[522], Henri II Comte de Champagne was still betrothed to a daughter of Baudouin V Comte de Hainaut when his betrothal to Ermengarde de Namur was arranged. However, this could not have been Isabelle who was married in 1180. It is possible that the betrothal was to Isabelle's younger sister Yolande. m (Abbaye de la Sainte-Trinité, Bapaume, Pas-de-Calais 28 Apr 1180) as his first wife, PHILIPPE II “Auguste” King of France, son of LOUIS VII King of France & his third wife Alix de Champagne (Château de Gonesse, Val d’Oise 21 Aug 1165-Mantes, Yvelines 14 Jul 1223, bur église de l'Abbaye royale de Saint-Denis). http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

2. BAUDOUIN de Hainaut (Jul 1171-in prison in Bulgaria 11 Jun 1205). The Chronicon Hanoniense records the birth "1171 mense Iulio…Valencenis" of "filium…Balduinum" to "Balduinus [et] Margharetam…Mathie comitis Boloniensis sororem"[523]. He succeeded his mother in 1194 as BAUDOUIN IX Count of Flanders, and his father in 1195 as BAUDOUIN VI Comte de Hainaut. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

3. YOLANDE de Flandre ([1175]-Constantinople 24 or 26 Aug 1219). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1191 names "Elizabeth Francie reginam…Hyolenz uxorem Petri Autisiodorensis et Sibiliam domnam Bellioci uxorem Wichardi" as the three daughters of "Balduinus [Haynaco]"[524]. The Chronicon Hanoniense records the marriage in 1181 of "Yolandem Balduini comitis Hanoniensis filiam" and "Henricus primus comitis Campanensis filius"[525], but this was presumably only a betrothal as such a marriage is unrecorded elsewhere. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Hyolenz…soror comitis Philippi Namucensis" as wife of "comes Petrus Autisiodorensis", specifying that her husband became Comte de Namur by right of his wife[526]. The Historia Episcoporum Autissiodorensium records that Pierre married "Yolandam sororem Henrici Constantinopolitani Imperatoris" as his second wife after the death of "Agnete uxore sua"[527]. She succeeded as YOLANDE Marquise de Namur in 1213. She was crowned Empress of Constantinople with her husband by the Pope 9 Apr 1217 at Rome[528]. She was appointed regent of the Latin Empire of Constantinople after arriving there safely by sea in 1217, in the absence of her husband whose fate at that time was unknown. She was able to stop the attacks of Theodoros Emperor in Nikaia, and arranged his marriage to her daughter Marie to seal the peace which was agreed[529]. Betrothed (1181, contract broken 1187) to HENRI II Comte de Champagne, son of HENRI I "le Libéral" Comte de Champagne & his wife Marie de France (29 Jul 1166-Acre 10 Sep 1197). The Chronicon Hanoniense records the marriage in 1181 of "Yolandem Balduini comitis Hanoniensis filiam" and "Henricus primus comitis Campanensis filius"[530], but this was presumably only a betrothal as such a marriage is unrecorded elsewhere. According to Gade[531], Henri II Comte de Champagne was still betrothed to a daughter of Baudouin V Comte de Hainaut when his betrothal to Ermengarde de Namur was arranged. Presumably this was Yolande. m (contract 24 Jul 1193, Soissons 1 Jul 1193) as his second wife, PIERRE [II] Seigneur de Courtenay, Comte de Nevers et d'Auxerre, son of PIERRE de France Seigneur de Courtenay & his wife Elisabeth de Courtenay (after 1158-Epirus after Jun 1219). He succeeded as Marquis de Namur in 1213, by right of his second wife. He was elected to succeed his brother-in-law Henri de Flandres in 1216 as PIERRE I Emperor of Constantinople. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

4. PHILIPPE de Hainaut (Valenciennes Mar 1174-15 Oct 1212, bur Namur, cathédrale de Saint-Aubin). The Flandria Generosa names (in order) "Balduinum, Philippum et Henricum" as the three sons of Count Baudouin & his wife Marguerite, specifying that Philippe was later Comte de Namur[532]. He succeeded as PHILIPPE I "le Noble" Comte de Namur in 1195, under the will of his father. Emperor Heinrich VI transformed Namur into a Marquisate in 1196. Marquis Philippe was captured by the French in 1199, his brother Count Baudouin being obliged to agree the Treaty of Péronne to secure his release[533]. A charter dated Nov 1209 records that “Philippus marchio Namurcensis” swore homage to "Henricus dux Lotharingie" for "terra Alost", after the death of "avunculi mei…Philippi…comitis Flandriæ, comitis Hannoniensis Balduinus pater meus et mater mea Margareta dicti Philippi soror"[534]. He was a member of the council of regency in Flanders during the absence of his brother Count Baudouin IX on Crusade, and during the minority of his niece Ctss Jeanne until Jan 1212. He swore allegiance to Philippe II King of France in 1206, his marriage to the king's daughter being arranged at the same time[535]. The necrology of Brogne records the death "VIII Id Oct" of "Philippus comes Namurcensis" who donated "ecclesiam de Flavion"[536]. [537]Betrothed (1193) to MATHILDE de Courtenay Ctss de Nevers, d'Auxerre et de Tonnerre, daughter of PIERRE II Seigneur de Courtenay & his first wife Agnès Ctss de Nevers et d'Auxerre ([1188]-29 Jul 1257, bur Abbaye de Réconfort, near Monceaux-le-Comte). m (contract Aug 1206) as her first husband, MARIE de France, daughter of PHILIPPE II "Auguste" King of France & his third wife Agnes von Andechs-Merano (after 1197-15 Aug 1238, bur Louvain, église Saint Pierre). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "filium unum Philippum…et filiam unam Mariam" as children of "Philippus [rex]" and "Mariam filiam ducis Meranie et marchionis Histrie", and in a later passage records their legitimation[538]. The Chronique de Guillaume de Nangis records the marriage in 1212 of "Philippe roi de France…Marie sa fille, veuve de Philippe comte de Namur" and "le duc de Brabant"[539]. She married secondly (Soissons, Aisne 22 Apr 1213) as his second wife, Henri I Duke of Brabant. The Annales Parchenses record the marriage in 1204 of "Heinricus dux Lotharingie" and "filiam regis Francie", naming her "Maria uxor Henrici ducis" in a later passage[540]. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

5. HENRI de Hainaut ([1176]-murdered Thessaloniki 11 Jul 1216). The Flandria Generosa names (in order) "Balduinum, Philippum et Henricum" as the three sons of Count Baudouin & his wife Marguerite, specifying that Henri later succeeded his brother Baudouin as Emperor of Constantinople[541]. He succeeded as HENRI I Emperor of Constantinople in 1206. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

6. SIBYLLE de Hainaut (-9 Jan 1217, bur Cluny). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1191 names "Elizabeth Francie reginam…Hyolenz uxorem Petri Autisiodorensis et Sibiliam domnam Bellioci uxorem Wichardi" as the three daughters of "Balduinus [Haynaco]"[542]. "Guichardus Belli Joci dominus" names "uxor et amica nostra Sibilla" in his testament dated 18 Sep 1216[543]. m ([1196/98]) GUICHARD [V] "le Grand" Seigneur de Beaujeu, son of HUMBERT [IV] Seigneur de Beaujeu & his wife Agnès de Thiern, dame de Montpensier-en-Auvergne (-27 Sep 1216). http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

7. EUSTACHE de Hainaut (-after 1217). Villehardouin names "the Emperor's brother Eustache" when recording that Emperor Henri sent him "across the straits to Spiga" after a truce was agreed with Theodoros Laskaris[544]. Military commander 1206/1209. Regent of the kingdom of Thessaloniki 1210/16. m (betrothed [Jun/Jul] 1209) --- Angelina, daughter of MIKAEL Komnenos Dukas [Angelos] Lord of Epirus & his [first wife --- Melissene]. The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. Her marriage was arranged by her father to seal his alliance with the Latin Empire of Constantinople[545]. http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

Count Baudouin VIII had one illegitimate child by an unknown mistress:

8. GODEFROI (-after 1202). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. Provost of St Audomar and St Donat at Bruges 1196. Provost at Mechelen. Archdeacon of Cambrai 1198. Provost of Saint-Amé de Douai 1202.http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

Count Baudouin VIII had [one probably illegitimate] child [by an unknown mistress]:

9. MARGUERITE (-after Mar 1237). The charter dated Mar 1236 quoted below indicates that Marguerite was the sister of Philippe de Hainaut Comte de Namur (see above). The obscurity of her husband (who is not even described in the sources identified below as a knight) and the high profile marriages of Comte Baudouin VIII’s other known children suggest that Marguerite was illegitimate. The chronology of her life (based, it is true, only on three data points) suggests that she may have been born towards the end of her father’s life. Perhaps she was left, while still a child, in the custody of Philippe Comte de Namur when their father died. A charter of “Simon van Harelbeke” dated 1234 records that he and his wife left on pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain[546]. Maybe Simon died during the journey as the following document describes him as “late”. “Bauduin héritier de l’Empire Romain et Comte de Namur” declared that, “feu Philippe Comte de Namur son oncle seigneur d’Harlebeke” having granted “le Gavene [type of tax] de Harlebeke” to “Marguerite sa sœur et à feu Simon de Harlebeke son mari” and their heirs for ever, “Marie fille desdits Simon et Marguerite” had donated it to Marquette on entering the abbey and that he now confirmed the donation to prevent “Marguerite sa sœur comtesse de Vienne” from disturbing the abbey’s possession, by charter dated Mar 1236 (presumably O.S.)[547]. m (before 15 Oct 1212) SIMON van Harelbeke, son of --- ([1234/Mar 1237]). http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/FLANDERS,%20HAINAUT.htm#BaudouinVHainautB

BAUDOUIN de Hainaut (1150-Mons 17 Dec 1195). The Chronicon Hanoniense names "Balduinum primum, Godefridum secundum, Balduinum tercium, Heinricum quartam" as the sons of "Alidis comitissa Hanonensis …cum viro Balduino comite"[255]. The Genealogica comitum Buloniensium names "Balduinum" as son of "Hainoensi comiti Balduino" and his wife Alice, specifying that he married "Margaretam filiam Theoderici Flandrensis comitis" and had children (unnamed)[256]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "comitem Balduinum, Henricum de Seburgo et quatuor sorores" as children of "comiti Balduini de Haynaco"[257]. "Comite Hanoniensis nepote suo [=[Heinricum] comes Namurencis] ex sorore" is referred to, but not named, in a contemporary report on the fire at the abbey of Gembloux[258].

He succeeded his father in 1171 as BAUDOUIN V Comte de Hainaut. "Ludovici advocate Hasbanie" sold the advocacy of Flône, and other rights relating to churches of Liège, to "domino comiti Hainoensi…Balduino", by charter dated 1190, witnessed by "Wilhelmus frater comitis Hainoensis, Alardus de Cimai, Nicholaus de Barbentione…"[259].

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

Baudouin V de Hainaut (vers 1150 - 17 décembre 1195 à Mons), dit Baudouin le Courageux,

fut comte de Hainaut de 1171 à 1195,

comte de Flandre sous le nom de Baudouin VIII de Flandre de 1191 à 1194 et

marquis de Namur sous le nom de Baudouin Ier de 1187 à 1195.

Il est le fils du comte Baudouin IV de Hainaut et d'Alix de Namur.

Sa vie

Il épouse en 1169 au Quesnoy la fille du puissant comte de Flandre Thierry d'Alsace, Marguerite. Le mariage permet de régler le contentieux qui existait à propos de Douai ; la ville est gardée à la Flandre en échange d'une partie de la dot.

Baudouin s'efforce de mater avec fermeté les querelles de ses barons. Il se rapproche de son beau-frère Philippe d'Alsace par un traité d'alliance (1177) qui le désigne comme héritier putatif de la Flandre. Philippe l'incite à donner sa fille Isabelle en mariage au roi de France Philippe II, dotée somptueusement de l'Artois (1180).

Le conflit qui éclate peu après entre le roi et le comte de Flandre met Baudouin dans une situation rapidement inconfortable. D'abord fidèle à l'alliance flamande (1180-1184), il se voit obligé de lutter contre le duc de Brabant Henri le Guerroyeur, allié du roi, puis doit préserver les intérêts de sa fille au bord de la répudiation. Le comte de Flandre refuse finalement de le soutenir contre Henri. C'est la rupture. D'autant que, subtilement, le roi l'a désigné (à son insu) exécuteur de la trève qu'il a signée à Compiègne en 1185 avec le comte de Flandre, provoquant la fureur de celui-ci. La paix est finalement conclue en 1186 après une invasion du Hainaut, Philippe d'Alsace craignant désormais être à son tour pris en étau.

Baudouin avait été également désigné successeur du comté de Namur par son titulaire, Henri l'Aveugle, sans postérité. L'accord avait été entériné formellement par l'empereur Frédéric Barberousse en 1184 à Mayence. Le comte reçoit même en 1187 la titulature du comté érigé en marquisat. Or, en 1186 naît une fille à Henri l'Aveugle. Le comte de Namur dénonce alors l'accord précédent pour faire de sa fille Ermesinde son héritière. S'ensuit une guerre que remporte Baudouin lors de la bataille de Noville-sur-Mehaigne (1er août 1194), où, malgré une forte infériorité numérique, ses troupes écrasent celles des comtes de Namur, Hollande, Juliers et Dagsbourg, des ducs de Brabant et de Limbourg. Henri garde le marquisat en viager, mais l'héritage passe à sa mort (1196) à Baudouin.

Entre temps, Baudouin était devenu comte de Flandre à la mort de Philippe d'Alsace (1191). Succession délicate parce que la veuve de Philippe, Mathilde de Portugal, déjà pourvue d'un douaire important, s'agite pour l'agrandir davantage, et que l'opération s'est déroulée en l'absence du roi de France alors en Orient. Finalement Mathilde est déboutée de ses prétentions et Philippe Auguste accepte l'hommage du nouveau comte de Flandre, prenant au passage un relief féodal de 5000 marcs d'argent.

Le 15 novembre 1194 meurt Marguerite d'Alsace et le comté de Flandre (amputé désormais de l'Artois) passe à leur fils Baudouin IX de Flandre. Baudouin détache le marquisat de Namur pour un fils puîné, Philippe le Noble, le Namurois restant dorénavant fief lige du Hainaut (il le restera jusqu'à Philippe le Bon).

Baudouin V meurt le 18 décembre 1195 à Mons. Il est enterré dans l'église Sainte-Waudru.

How Baldwin V acquired his brother Philip's lands

Philip I, count of Flanders and Elisabeth of Vermandois were childless. In 1175, Philip discovered that Elisabeth was committing adultery[5][6] and had her lover, Walter de Fontaines, beaten to death.[5] Philip then obtained complete control of her lands in Vermandois from King Louis VII of France. In 1177, when Philip left for the Holy Land, he designated his sister Margaret and her second husband, Baldwin V, Count of Hainaut, as his heirs.
