William I (c. 1167, The Hague – 4 February 1222), Count of Holland from 1203 to 1222. He was the younger son of Floris III and Ada of Scotland.

Life

William was raised in Scotland. He started a revolt against his brother, Dirk VII and became count in Friesland after a reconciliation. Friesland was considered as a part of Holland by the Counts of Holland. His niece, Ada, eventually inherited Holland in 1203, but William couldn't accept this. After a civil war, which lasted for several years, William won the war. Louis and Ada were supported by the bishop of Liège and bishop of Utrecht, and the count of Flanders. William was supported by the duke of Brabant and by the majority of the Hollanders.

Emperor Otto IV acknowledged him as count of Holland in 1203, because he was a supporter of the Welfs. He and many others changed allegiance to emperor Frederick II after the battle of Bouvines in 1214. He took part in a French expedition against king John of England. The pope excommunicated him for this.

Possibly because of this, William then became a fervent crusader. He campaigned in Prussia and joined in the conquest of Lisbon. In Europe, he came to be called William the Crazy for his chivalric and reckless behaviour in battle. William conquered the city of Damietta during the Fifth Crusade.

Evolution of the county

There were great changes in the landscape of Holland in the end of the 12th and during the 13th century. Many colonists bought land to turn the swamps into polders. Most of the swamps had been sold, and irrigation had started during the reign of William. Huge infrastructural works were done; the island called Grote Waard was enclosed with dikes all around and a dam was built at Spaarndam. New governmental bodies were created, the so-called waterschappen and hoogheemraadschappen, which were charged with the task of protecting the polders against ever-present threat of flooding. Count William granted city rights to Geertruidenberg in 1213, to Dordrecht in 1217, to Middelburg in 1220 and perhaps also to Leiden. In this way he gave an impulse to trade.

Family

Count William was married twice. First, he was married in 1197 at Stavoren to Adelheid of Guelders, daughter of Otto I, Count of Guelders and Richarde of Bavaria. Adelheid died on 12 February 1218 while William was away on crusade. On his return he married secondly, in July 1220, Marie of Brabant, daughter of Henry I, Duke of Brabant and Maud of Boulogne and Alsace. She was the widow of Emperor Otto IV. William and his first wife Adelaide had the following children:

Floris IV, Count of Holland (24 June 1210 The Hague–19 July 1234, Corbie, France).

Otto (d. 1249), Regent of Holland in 1238-1239, Bishop of Utrecht.

Willem (d. 1238), Regent of Holland in 1234-1238.

Richardis (d. 1262).

Ada (d. 1258), Abbess at Rijnsburg 1239.

Familie [Bearbeiten]

Er war der Sohn von Graf Florens III. von Holland und Adelheid von Huntingdon, Tochter des Prinzen Heinrich von Schottland.

Wilhelm I. heiratete 1197 Adelheid von Geldern (* 1190; † 4. Februar 1218) Tochter von Otto I. von Geldern und Richardis von Bayern. Aus dieser Ehe stammen die Kinder:

   * Florens IV., Graf von Holland (* 1210; † 1234)
   * Otto III., Bischof von Utrecht († 1249)
   * Wilhelm († 1238)
   * Ada († 1258), ab 1239 Äbtissin in Rijnsburg
   * Ricarda († 1262)

Er heiratete 1220 Maria von Brabant († 1260), die Witwe Kaiser Otto IV.. Die Ehe bleib kinderlos.

Leben [Bearbeiten]

Er nahm 1189 gemeinsam mit seinem Vater Florens III. am Dritten Kreuzzug unter Kaiser Friedrich Barbarossa teil. Auf diesem verstarb sein Vater 1190 in Antiochia.

Nach seiner Rückkehr begehrte er gegen seinen Bruder Dietrich VII. auf, der die väterliche Grafschaft Holland übernommen hatte. Dabei wurde Wilhelm vom Grafen von Flandern und den Friesen unterstützt wurde. 1195 wurden er und seine Verbündeten allerdings bei Egmont von seiner Schwägerin Adelheid von Kleve entscheidend geschlagen und er musste seinen Aufstand aufgeben.

Nach dem Tod Dietrichs 1203 nahm er den Kampf um die Nachfolge in Holland wieder auf, diesmal gegen Dietrichs Tochter Ada und deren Gatten Ludwig II., Graf von Looz. Bis 1206 hatte er sich gegen seine Gegner durchgesetzt.

Im Kampf der Staufer und Welfen tendierte er zum Lager der Staufer. Zwar kämpfte er 1214 im Heer Kaiser Ottos IV. in der Schlacht bei Bouvines. Allerdings wechselte er bald die Seite und schloss sich dem französischen Kronprinzen Ludwig (VIII.) bei seiner Invasion in England 1215/16 an.

Seine Unterstützung für die staufische Partei brachte ihn in Ungnade des Papstes Honorius, weswegen Wilhelm sich 1217 veranlasst sah, sich dem Fünften Kreuzzug anzuschließen.

Im Sommer 1217 brach er mit einer Flotte niederländischer, flämischer und friesischer Kreuzfahrer von Holland aus ins Heilige Land auf. In Portugal ließ er sich vom dortigen König Alfons dem Dicken überreden, dort zu überwintern und für ihn Al-Qasr, Setúbal und Rabeta Ruta von den Mauren zu erobern. Bis April 1218 traf er in Akkon ein. Mit seiner Hilfe gelang im August 1219 nach 16-monatiger Belagerung und erbitterten Kämpfen die Eroberung der ägyptischen Stadt Damiette. Nach der Eroberung der Festung betrachtete er sein Gelübde als erfüllt und kehrte in die Heimat zurück.

Seine erste Frau war in der Zwischenzeit verstorben und er heiratete 1220 in zweiter Ehe Maria von Brabant, die Witwe des Kaisers Otto. Drei Jahre später starb er.
