About Henry VI, count of Luxembourg

Henry VI, Count of Luxembourg

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 (Redirected from Henry VI of Luxembourg)

Henry VI (ca. 1240 – 5 June 1288) was count of Luxembourg and Arlon from the death of his father, Henry V the Blond in 1281 until his own death, seven years later, when he was succeeded by his son, Henry VII.

Henry was the son of Henry V the Blond and Marguerite of Bar. His father took part in Saint Louis's crusade against Tunis and he continued this war, being killed alongside three of his brothers at the Battle of Worringen by a knight of John I, Duke of Brabant.

Henry married Beatrice d'Avesnes (d. 1 March 1321, daughter of Baldwin and granddaughter of Bouchard IV of Avesnes) around 1260–1 and they had three sons, two of whom attained the highest honours and excellence:

Baldwin, afterwards Archbishop-Elector of Trier, and

Henry, who would become King of the Romans in 1308 and Holy Roman Emperor (as Henry VII) in 1309, being crowned as such by Pope Clement V in 1312.

Walram, died at the siege of Brescia in 1311
