GERARD de Lorraine, son of GERARD Duke of Upper Lorraine & his wife Hadwide --- (-1108, bur Belval). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" as son of "Gerardus de Alsatia dux Mosellanorum"[748]. He opposed his brother's sole succession in 1071, waged war for two years, the dispute being settled when his brother ceded him the Saintois and other territories, which became the county of Vaudémont, 14 Apr 1073. Comte de Vaudémont. He constructed the fortresses of Deuilly and Châtel-sur-Moselle[749]. Pibon Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and named "dux Theodericus et Simon puer eius filius, et frater ducis Gerardus comes et Renardus comes Tillensis" by charter dated 10 Oct 1091[750]. He founded the Priory of Belval 1097. Vogt of Lure. m firstly ALBERADE, daughter of --- (-12 Aug ----). The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified. m secondly ([1080]) HEILWIG von Egisheim, daughter of GERHARD [II] Graf von Egisheim & his wife Richarda --- (-29 Jan before 1126, bur Belval). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the wife of "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" as "filiam comitis de Daburc, neptem sancti Leonis papa" but does not name her or her father[751]. “Helwigis comitissa, filia comitis Gerhardi de castro Egensheim…cum filiis ambobus laycis Hugone maiore et minore Udalrico” donated property to the church of Strasbourg by charter dated 1118[752]. Gérard & his second wife had six children:

  1. HUGUES de Vaudémont (-4 Feb 1155, bur Priory of Belval, near Portieux, Vosges). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Wanderii Montis Hugonem et sororem eius Gislam" as children of "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" & his [second] wife[753]. He succeeded his father in 1108 as Comte de Vaudémont.

- see below.

  1. ULRICH de Vaudémont (-1143, bur Belval). “Helwigis comitissa, filia comitis Gerhardi de castro Egensheim…cum filiis ambobus laycis Hugone maiore et minore Udalrico” donated property to the church of Strasbourg by charter dated 1118[754]. Graf von Egisheim 1125.
  2. JUDITH de Vaudémont (-[23 Mar 1161/64]). The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. Abbess of Remiremont 1114. Abbess of Saint Pierre in Metz 1139.
  3. ETIENNETTE de Vaudémont (-[4 Dec 1160/1188], bur Oelenberg). The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. The Necrology of Basel records the death "II Non Dec" of "Stehania comitissa" and her burial "in Oelenberg"[755]. m as his second wife, FREDERIC I Comte de Ferrette, son of THIERRY de Mousson & his wife Ermentrude de Bourgogne [Comté] ([1174/78]-19 Jul [1160], bur Oelenberg).
  4. GISELE de Vaudémont (-26 Dec after 1141, bur Saint-Mihiel). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Wanderii Montis Hugonem et sororem eius Gislam" as children of "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" & his [second] wife, specifying that Gisela was "comitissa Barri"[756]. Her first marriage is deduced from the same source which records that "comes Raynaldus Barri" became the stepfather of "comitis Frederici Tullensis et fratrum suorum Theoderici et Wedrici" although without naming his wife[757]. It should be noted that these two texts do not establish beyond doubt that the widow of Renier Comte de Toul was also the daughter of Gérard Comte de Vaudémont. It is therefore not impossible that Comte Renaud married twice, firstly to Gisèle daughter of Comte Gérard, and secondly to the unnamed widow of Comte Renier. However, no indication has yet been found in the primary sources to indicate that this is correct. m firstly RAINARD [III] Comte de Toul, son of FREDERIC [I] Comte d'Astenois et de Toul & his wife Gertrude de Toul (-[1116/20]). m secondly ([1120]) as his second wife, RENAUD I Comte de Bar et de Mousson, son of THIERRY de Mousson & his wife Ermentrude de Bourgogne [Comté] ([1175/77]-on ship in the Mediterranean 10 Mar 1149).
  5. HARA . The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. Canoness [1125/51]. Abbess of Bouxières.
