  1. Dirk V (c. 1052, Vlaardingen–17 June 1091).

Floris I volgde op 13 jan 1049 zijn broer Dirk IV als graaf van Holland op nadat deze te Dordrecht was gesneuveld. Hij huwde omstreeks 1050 Geertruid van Saksen uit het Huis Billung. Uit dit huwelijk werden drie kinderen geboren, Dirk, die als Dirk V zijn vader opvolgde, Floris en Bertha, die later huwde met Koning Filips I van Frankrijk. Floris I ontleende zijn gezag rechtstreeks aan dat van de Duitse Keizer. Hij zou een vechtlustig en roemrijk man geweest zijn en trachtte zijn macht verder naar het oosten uit te breiden. Na een gewonnen strijd bij Hemert (nu Nederhemert) in de Bommelerwaard tegen Ecbert I van Friesland werd hij op 28-06-1061 vermoord door de Graaf van Kuik, een handlanger van bisschop Willem van Utrecht en die geassisteerd werd door enkele helpers. Naar overlevering op het moment dat hij vermoeid door de strijd onder een boom lag te rusten. Deze moord werd waarschijnlijk op aandringen van de Bisschop van Utrecht gepleegd. Door J.M. van Hemert werd in 1749 in het werk 'Korte levensbeschrijving der Hollandsche Graven' zijn dood als volgt weergegeven: 'De zegepralende veldheer, te stout op het bevogte voordeel, en door de hitte van de dag afgeslooft, had zig te Hemert, onder ene aangename en verkwikkelijke belommeringe van het geboomte, tot de rust geschikt; en de vermoeide krijgsknegten, ook niets anders verlangende, hadden zich rondom dat beminde legerhoofd op den grond nedergelegd. De een zowel als de ander, door de betoverende en onwederstaanbare kragt van de slaap overwonnen, die ongevoelig de afgematte leden bekropen had, wierden door den Grave van Kuik verrast en merendeels verslagen. Op die wijze verdween Floris, die niet anders dan in den slaap kon overwonnen worden; en die door de reizende zon als overwinnaar begroet was, kreeg met de nederdalende de onderlaag, en ontruimde dus voor altoos den Aardbodem'. Hij was meer dan 2 meter lang.

Floris I Geboren circa 1025, Nederhemert, 28 juni 1061. Zoon van Dirk III en Othelhilde van Saksen. Hij was een Friese graaf die van 1049 tot 1061 het bewind voerde over de gebieden die later bekend zouden worden als het graafschap Holland. Hij volgde zijn broer Dirk IV op. Maar moest aanvankelijk vluchten. De relatie met de keizer en de bisschoppen bleef slecht. Floris raakte in conflict met de keizer over de tol op de Merwede (vermoedelijk bij Vlaardingen, dus stroomafwaarts van de huidige Merwede). Bovendien probeerde hij zijn bezit in het rivierenland uit te breiden en kwam daardoor in conflict met bisschop Willem van Cuijk. Regentes Agnes gaf in 1058 bisschop Willem van Cuijk van Utrecht, Hendrik II van Leuven, Wichard van Gelder, Anno II aartsbisschop van Keulen, Diederik bisschop van Luik en Egbert I van Meißen, de markgraaf van Friesland (Friesland en Groningen), opdracht om Floris tot de orde te roepen. De eerste echte slag werd in 1061 uitgevochten bij Oudheusden. Floris was zwaar in de minderheid en had daarom het slagveld met grote aantallen valkuilen voorbereid. Zo raakten zijn tegenstanders in grote verwarring en werd een groot aantal direct al buiten gevecht gesteld. Floris wist daarna de slag eenvoudig te winnen. De volgende slag vond op 28 juni 1061 plaats bij Nederhemert. Floris viel de troepen van Keulen, Brunswijk en Cuijk aan en wist ze snel te verjagen. De Friezen gingen vervolgens rusten in de schaduw van de bomen langs de Maas. Herman van Cuijk, burggraaf van Utrecht, hergroepeerde zijn troepen en overviel de nietsvermoedende Friezen. Floris werd samen met honderden van zijn mannen gedood. Floris was gehuwd met Geertruida van Saksen. Zij was de dochter van Bernhard II van Saksen (Zie Hertogen van Saksen II nr. 5) en Eilika van Schweinfurt. Kinderen van Floris en Geertruida waren:

Dirk V van Holland (1054-1091)(Volgt 6) Floris, jong overleden te Luik, waar hij mogelijk heen was gestuurd voor zijn opvoeding Bertha van Holland (ca. 1058-1094), gehuwd met Filips I van Frankrijk (Zie De Capetingers nr. 11) Adelheid (1045-1085), gehuwd met Boudewijn I van Guînes (Zie Graven van Guînes nr. 8)
