Research Notes: Husband - Godfrey II Count of Leuven, Landgrave of Brabant

Count of Leuven and Brussels, Landgrave of Brabant and Margrave of Antwerp. Also Duke of Lower Lorraine (as Godfrey VII).

From Wikipedia - Godfrey II of Leuven :

Godfrey II (c.1110 - 13 June 1142 ) was the count of Leuven , landgrave of Brabant by inheritance from 23 January 1139 . He was the son of Godfrey I and Ida of Chiny. He was also the duke of Lower Lorraine (as Godfrey VII), and as such also margrave of Antwerp , by appointment in 1139 after the death of Duke Waleran .

He was first associated with his father in 1136 , when he first carried the ducal title. This was confirmed by Conrad III of Germany , who had married the sister of Godfrey's wife. Waleran left a son, Henry II of Limburg , who asserted his father's ducal rights. Godfrey and Henry entered into a war in which the latter was decisively and quickly destroyed. Godfrey did not long enjoy his victory. He was killed by a disease of the liver two years thence.

He was buried in St. Peter's Church in Leuven .

He married Luitgarde, daughter of Berengar I of Sulzbach and sister of Gertrude, wife of Conrad III of Germany , and Bertha , wife of Manuel I Comnenus , the emperor of Byzantium . He was succeeded by his son Godfrey III in both the counties and the duchy.

From Wikipedia - Godfrey III, Count of Leuven :

Godfrey III (died August 21 , 1190 ) was count of Leuven (or Louvain), landgrave of Brabant , margrave of Antwerp , and duke of Lower Lorraine (as Godfrey VIII) from 1142 to his death.

He was the son of Godfrey II and Lutgarde of Sulzbach. He was still an infant at his succession (therefore called dux in cunis) of which a few Brabantian vassals sought to take advantage to get independent from the duke (Wars of Grimbergen , 1141-1159). On 30 March 1147 , Godfrey was present at the coronation of Henry Berengar , son of Conrad III of Germany , in Aachen . When Conrad left on Crusade, war began anew in 1148. Peace was elusive until the election of Conrad's successor, Frederick Barbarossa . By marriage to Margaret, daughter of Henry II of Limburg , Godfrey united two powerful and antagonistic houses in the region.

In 1159 Godfrey ended the war with the Berthout, lords of Grimbergen , by burning their impressive motte at Grimbergen . In 1171, Godfrey was at war with Hainaut , but was defeated. In 1179, he gave his son Henry in marriage to a niece of Philip of Alsace , Count of Flanders .

Between 1182 and 1184 Godfrey went on a Jerusalem campaign. In the interim, Barbarossa granted Henry the title "Duke of Brabant ". Godfrey died in 1190, on 10 or 21 August. He left an increased territory and built the fortress of Nedelaer (near Vilvoorde ). The ducal title was transmitted to his son at the Diet of Schwäbisch Hall (September 1190).

From Wikipedia - Henry I, Duke of Brabant :

Henry I of Brabant (French: Henri I de Brabant, Dutch: Hendrik I van Brabant), named "The Courageous", was (probably) born in 1165 in Leuven and died in the German city of Cologne on September 5 , 1235 . He became Duke of Brabant in 1183/1184 and succeeded his father as Duke of Lower Lotharingia in 1190. He was the son of Godfrey III of Leuven , Duke of Lower Lotharingia and landgrave of Brabant , and Margaret of Limburg .
He married Mathilde of Boulogne (Mathilde of Flanders), daughter of Marie of Boulogne and Matthew of Alsace 1179.

He had six children by his first marriage:
Marie (c. 1190 - May 1260), married in Maastricht after May 19 , 1214 Otto IV, Holy Roman Emperor , married July 1220 Count William I of Holland
Adelaide (b. c. 1190), married 1206 Arnulf, Count of Loos , married February 3 , 1225 William X of Auvergne (c. 1195-1247), married before April 21 , 1251 Arnold van Wesemaele (d. aft. 1288)

Marie, died young

Under Henry I, there was a town policy and town planning. Henry's attention went out to those regions that lent themselves to the extension of his sovereignty and in some locations he used the creation of a new town as an instrument in the political organisation of the area. Among the towns to which the Duke gave city rights and trade privileges was 's-Hertogenbosch .
He was buried in St. Peter's chapter church at Leuven where you can still see his late romanesque effigy.

From http://cybergata.com/roots/3162.htm :
It appears that William de Lancaster I had been in high favor with William, Count of Boulogne and Mortain, Earl of Warren and Lord of Lancaster, who acquired the Earldom of Warren by his marriage with Isabel, the only daughter and heiress of William, third Earl of Warren, and the Honor of Lancaster by confirmation of King, as his rightful inheritance. Earl William, or Henry II, married William de Lancaster to Gundreda, sister of William, third Earl of Warren and widow of Roger, Earl of Warwick. It appears that at the same time, William was enfeoffed of one knight's fee in Ulverston, Warton and Garstang, and important estate of thirty six and one-half carucates of land. It was doubtless that at this time he assumed the surname of Lancaster, with the licence of the his chief lord and the King.

Research Notes: Husband - Saint Gondulphus of Maastricht, Bishop of Tongres

From Ancestral Roots, line 190-6 (St. Gondolfus), "He was almost certainly father of Bodegeisel II (Gen. 7), not Bodegeisel I as shown in earlier editions."

From Wikipedia - Gondulphus of Tongeren :
Saint Gondulphus of Maastricht (also Gondolfus, Gundulfus, Gondulf, Gondon; born c. 524, died c. 6 July 607) was the Bishop of Tongres and Bishop of Maastricht in the sixth century.

His predecessor, Monulphus (Monulf), transferred the seat of the bishopric from Tongeren to Maastricht , which thenceforth was the actual residence of the bishops of Tongeren. However, the official title of the Bishop of Tongeren, episcopus Tungrorum, was retained until the eleventh century, even when the episcopal see had been transferred by Lambert of Maastricht from Maastricht to Liège .

Bishop Gondulphus is a somewhat enigmatic figure indeed, one is inclined to question whether he be not identical with Monulphus. But the two saints must nevertheless be distinguished. Monulphus must have occupied the See of Tongeren until the end of the sixth or the beginning of the seventh century, while a Bishop of Maastricht named Betulphus was present at the Council of Paris in 614. Gondulphus, then, would be inserted between Monulphus and Betulphus, at least if this Betulphus must not be identified with Gondulphus on the grounds that the case is analogous to that of the episcopal list of Mainz , where Bertulfus and Crotoldus must be reckoned identical. Furthermore, the episcopal lists of the eleventh and twelfth centuries, whose value is, however, not very great, ignore the historically attested Betulphus, and make Gondulphus the immediate successor of Monulphus. The biographies of Gondulphus, which are handed down to us from the Middle Ages, are merely an extract from the Vita Servatii of the priest Jocundus. They are quite without value and are full of legends. If they are to be believed, Gondulphus endeavoured to rebuild the town of Tongeren, which had been destroyed by the barbarian invasions. But heaven opposed his scheme, and miraculously manifested its desire to the saint. Furious wolves fell upon the pagan colonists of this region, and devoured them before the eyes of the horrified bishop. Thus has legend quite obscured the authentic history of St. Gondulphus, the fact of his episcopacy at Maastricht being the only one that is authentic. According to local tradition he occupied the episcopal see for seven years and died about 607. This last statement does not tally with his presence at Paris in 614, if he is to be considered identical with the Betulphus who assisted at that council. In any case he was buried in the nave of the church of Saint-Servais at Maastricht, which had been magnificently restored by his predecessor, St. Monulphus.

The bodies of Monulphus and Gondulphus were solemnly exhumed in 1039 by the Bishops Nithard of Liège and Gérard of Cambrai . An epitaph commemorating this event was afterwards misinterpreted, and gave rise to a legend according to which the two saints arose from their tomb in 1039 in order to assist at the dedication of the church of Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle), and at the conclusion of the ceremony returned to their tomb to resume their eternal sleep.

Together with St. Monulphus, St. Gondulphus is secondary patron of the city and church of Maastricht. His feast is kept on 16 July or 17 June .[citation needed ] The commemoration of the exhumation of 1039 is celebrated in August.

St. Gondulphus is known to have been married to Palatina de Troyes , they had a son named Baudgise D'Aquitaine II, who became Duke of Aquitaine , France.

King of Britain north of the Humber; reigned 2 years.

From Wikipedia - Marganus :

Morganus (Welsh : Morgan) was a legendary king of the Britons as accounted by Geoffrey of Monmouth . He was the son of Maglaurus, Duke of Albany , and Goneril, the daughter of King Leir .

Morganus, grandson of Leir, despised the rule of his aunt Cordelia in Britain . With the help of his cousin Cunedagius , Morganus took over the kingdom from Cordelia and ruled half of it. Following Cordelia's suicide, Morganus came to rule the region of Britain northeast of the Humber .

Morganus was eldest male heir of Leir and, influenced by his peers, became discontent with ruling only half of Britain. He began a scorched earth march through Cornwall until reaching the army of Cunedagius. Cunedagius defeated Morganus and Morganus fled. Cunedagius followed him throughout Britain until cornering him in Wales . There Cunedagius killed Morganus and became king of all Britain. He named the place Margon in honour of his cousin.

From http://cybergata.com/roots/441.htm :
Background Information. 220
Richard Fitz Gilbert, styled from his possession "de Bienfaite," "de Clare" and "de Tonbride," was son of Gilbert, comté de Brionne in Normandy, which Gilbert was son and heir of Godfrey, comté de Brionne, illegitimate son of Richard, Duc de Normandie.

~Cokayne's Complete Peerage, 2nd Edition, (Clare), Vol. III, p. 242
• Background Information. 732
When Richard's father, William Longsword, was assassinated in 942, his Uncle, Bernard the Dane, brought Richard from Bayeyx, age ten years at the time, so that he might be solemnly invested with ducal sword and mantle and to receive homage of the Normans. He received the acknowledgement the Norman chiefs. King Louis captured and imprisoned the young Richard under the pretense of providing Richard with an education at Motleon. Richard, with the help of Osmon the Dane who had accompanied Richard to the king's court, was able to escape and return to Normandy. Louis, with the aid of Hugh the Great, attacked the Normans. The Kings of Denmark came to the assistance of the Normans and Louis was defeated.
