About Walram count von Jülich


Walram, Count of Jülich (1240/45 – Battle of Furnes, August 20, 1297) was the second son of William IV, Count of Jülich and Richardis of Guelders, daughter of Gerard III, Count of Guelders.

In 1278, Walram succeeded his father as Count of Jülich when his father and his elder brother, William, were slain together in Aachen. He served as Provost at Aachen as late as 1279/1280. Walram was a fierce opponent of the Archbishop of Cologne and a partisan of the Duke of Brabant in the War of succession for Limburg. In the Battle of Woeringen in 1288 he captured Archbishop Siegfried, which enabled him to gain supremacy over the Archbishop. He won Zülpich among others and secured his other fiefs.

Walram was killed in the Battle of Furnes on August 20, 1297, fighting alongside Guy, Count of Flanders against the French.
