He was present at the 1076 enfranchisement of the chapel in the castle of Amance[70]. He inherited the region of the future county of Bar from his mother in 1093. He had taken a vow to join the First Crusade but was released from it due to illness. He was invested as Comte de Verdun after 1096 by Richer Bishop of Verdun[71].
