About Walram II, comte d'Arlon, graaf van Limburg

Walram Ier ou Waléran Ier de Limbourg, dit Udon, mort vers 1082, fut comte d'Arlon de 1052 à 1082, et comte de Limbourg de 1065 à 1082. Il semble être fils de Walram, comte d'Arlon.

L'origine de sa famille est mal connue, il semble qu'il soit membre d'une branche collatérale de la maison d'Ardenne. Il est aussi possible que sa mère soit Adèle de Lorraine, fille de Thierry Ier duc de Haute-Lotharingie

Il est d'abord comte d'Arlon en indivis avec son frère Foulques, puis devient seul comte à la mort de ce dernier en 1078.

Il épousa Jutte, fille de Frédéric de Luxebourg, duc de Basse-Lotharingie et de Gerberge de Boulogne, qui lui donnera comme fils :

   * Henri Ier (1059 † 1119), duc de Limbourg

Ce mariage lui apporta en dot le comté de la Len ou de Lengau, un ancien district du comté de Liège. Waléran s'installa dans cette terre, et fit construire un château qu'il nomma Limbourg (=Len-burg). Ce château et la ville qui l'entoure devinrent la capitale du comté de Lengau, qui prit ensuite le nom de comté de Limbourg. Il fut également avoué de l'abbaye de Saint-Trond, dépendant de l'évêché de Metz, que son beau-père avait déjà tenu, et dont il transmit la charge à ses descendants.


Waleran I or Walram I (died 1082), called Udon, was the count of Arlon from AD 1052 and Limburg from 1065. He was the son of Waleran, Count of Arlon. He was also the advocate of the abbey of Sint-Truiden.

The origins of his family are poorly known, he appears to have been a member of a collateral branch of the house of Ardennes, then ruling in Upper Lorraine. He may instead have been maternally related to that house. His mother may have been Adela, daughter of Duke Theodoric I.

He inherited Arlon together with his brother Fulk, who died in 1078, leaving him sole count. Waleran married Jutta, daughter of Frederick, Duke of Lower Lorraine. This marriage gave him the county of the Len (or Lengau), a district around Liège. Waleran constructed a castle in his new territory: the Lenburg, whence Limburg. Waleran made this castle his seat and he is known as the first count of Limburg. His son, Henry, inherited his counties on his death.

The Duchy of Limburg originated in the disintegration of the Duchy of Lower Lorraine in the 10th and 11th centuries. It mainly comprised the land of Eupen. The first known gentleman was Frederik van Luxemburg, about 1056. His son-in-law Walram I, Count of Aarlen (1061-1082) built the Limburg castle in the valley of the Vesder. Son Hendrik I also became the duke of Lower Lorraine, which left the duke title in Limburg
