About Countess Liutgarde of Namur Waremme

Lutgarde de Namur first married Arnold, 3rd count of Haspinga. After his death, she marries Arnold's brother, Giselbert. Whilst Arnold had consolidated the various possessions of his father (Rudolph), upon his death his brother Balderic, bishop of Liège, would rearrange the structure of these possessions. They are then handed over to Giselbert, thus in effect creating the first County of Loon as we know it - as a consolidation of the various counties in Hesbaye (Haspengouw). Through these rearrangements and her subsequent marriages to Arnold and Giselbert, Lutgarde was obviously instrumental in the creation of the county. Documentary proof to this sequence of events will be added later to this and other related profiles. (Updated: June 17, 2011)


  • 4. [LIUTGARDE [Emma] de Namur . The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Hadewidem et Emmam de Los" as the two daughters of "Ermengardis [filiæ Karoli ducis]"[57]. The primary sources are contradictory regarding the identify of Liutgarde´s husband. The Gesta Abbatem Trudonensium names "Lutgarde filia Hermegardis Namurcensis comitissæ, Ottonis prefati ducis filie" as wife of "Ottonis comitis de Los", and the couple as parents of Baldric [II] Bishop of Liège[58]. From a chronological point of view, it is impossible for a daughter of Albert I Comte de Namur and his wife Ermengarde (married in 990) to have been the mother of Baldric Bishop of Liège (installed as bishop in 1008). Another version is provided by the Vita Arnulfi which names "Lugerdam, Godam, Ermengardam" as the three sisters of "Albertus comes Namurcensis", adding that Liutgarde was the mother of "Emmonem et Ottonem fratrem eius"[59]. No primary source has so far been found which names the father of the brothers Emmo and Otto. From a chronological point of view, it is possible that their father was Giselbert, son of Otto. If this is correct, it is possible that Liutgarde´s husband was Giselbert Comte de Looz.
