LAMBERT [Baldric] de Louvain, son of LAMBERT [I] "le Barbu" Comte de Louvain & his wife Gerberge of Lower Lotharingia [Carolingian] (-after 21 Sep 1062, bur Nivelles). The Vita Sanctæ Gudilæ records that "Lambertus…comes" succeeded his brother Henri[52]. The Genealogica comitum Buloniensium records that "Henricum seniorem de Bursella" was father of "Lambertum comitem et Henricum fratrem eius et Mathildem sororem eorum", but this appears to be a confused representation of the situation[53]. He succeeded his brother in 1038 as LAMBERT [II] Comte de Louvain, after depriving his nephew of his rights: the Chronicon Sigeberti records the death in 1038 of "Henricus Lovaniensis Comes" and the succession of "filius eius Otho" who was deprived by "patruus eius Baldricus qui et Lambertus"[54]. The Chronicon Brabanti also refers to the two names of Lambert when recording the death of "Lambertus II qui et Baldricus dictus Cum-Barba"[55], although it is unclear how reliable this is as "cum-barba" is the nickname applied in other sources to Comte Lambert [I]. If Lambert [II] was in fact also called Baldric, it suggests a relationship (which has not been identified) with the early Graafen van Betuwe (see the document HOLLAND) and Comtes de Looz (see LOWER LOTHARINGIAN NOBILITY), in which three bishops of Liège named Baldric belonged. "Baldricus…cum uxore mea Oda" founded the collegial church in Brussels by charter dated 1047[56]. The Vita Balderici refers to "comes Lowaniensis Lambertus vir profanæ mentis et moribus barbarus"[57], presumed to refer to Comte Lambert [II].

m UDA de Lotharingia, daughter of GOZELON I Duke of Lower Lotharingia & his wife --- (-23 Oct, after 1047). The Vita Sanctæ Gudilæ names "Oda…Gozelonis ducis filia" as wife of "Lambertus…comes" in a passage dated 1047[58]. The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Godefridum ducem, Odam et Regelindam" as children of "Gozelo, frater Arnulphi et Godefridi"[59]. "Baldricus…cum uxore mea Oda" founded the collegial church in Brussels by charter dated 1047[60].

Comte Lambert [II] & his wife had [four] children:

1. HENRI de Louvain (-[1078/79], bur Nivelles) m ADELHEID, daughter of EBERHARD Graaf van Betuwe en Teisterbant & his wife --- (-after 1086).

2. ADELA de Louvain (-1083). m firstly (before 1060) OTTO Graf von Weimar, son of WILLIAM [III] Graf von Weimar & his second wife Oda der Ostmark (-early 1067). He succeeded his brother in 1062 as OTTO Markgraf von Meissen. m secondly (1069) as his second wife, DEDO [II] Markgraf der sächsischen Ostmark [Niederlausitz] [Wettin], son of DIETRICH [II] Graf in Eilenburg [Wettin] & his wife Mathilde von Meissen (-Oct 1075).

3. REGINAR de Louvain (-killed in battle Hesbaie 1077). Lovene"[94].

Lambert II (d. Tournai, June 19, 1054) was count of Louvain between 1033 and 1054. Lambert was the son of Lambert I of Louvain (d. 1015).

According the Vita Gudilae (recordend between 1048-1051) he followed his brother Henry I of Louvain. Lambert scorned both temporal and spiritual authorities and in 1054 even took up arms against Holy Roman Emperor Henry III. He was defeated and lost his life at Tournai.

During his reign Brussels began its growth. Lambert arranged to transfer the remains of Saint Gudule to the St. Michael church. This church, thereafter known as Saints-Michel-et-Gudule, developed to become St. Michael and Gudula Cathedral. Lambert also constructed a fortress on the Coudenberg hill.

Since Lambert II died in 1054, an imperial charter of September 1062 connecting a certain Lambert to the county Brussels, is probably is refering to another person. This biographical article of a European noble is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it.
