INTRODUCTION

This document shows the nobility in the Lower Rhine area which in the present day straddles the eastern part of the Netherlands and the west-central part of Germany.  In medieval times, it lay east of the county of Hollan d and was approximately co-extensive with the archiepiscopal province of Köln.  In the 9th and 10th centuries, the area was divided between the kingdom of Lotha ringia (later the duchy of Lower Lotharingia) and the duchy of Franconia.  From about the early 12th century, it developed separately, dominated by the powerful archbishops of Köln.  In particular, the families of the Grafen von Berg, Jülich, Kleve and Mark intermarried frequently, and eventually in the early 15th century consolidated their states into the duchy of Jülich-Berg-Kleve which later passed by marriage to the Hohenzollern family and subsequently formed a significant part of that part of the kingdom of Prussia which was located in western Germany. 

Most of the local noble families emerge from the documentation only in the late 11th or early 12th centuries.  Before that, only the families of the Grafen von Jülich and Grafen von Kleve can be traced back to the Lotharingian period.  The reasons for the lack of continuity with the previous counties in the duchy of Lower Lotharingia (see the document LOWER LOTHARINGIAN NOBILITY) and the emergence of new counties in the Lower Rhine area in the 12th century has not been identified and deserves further study. 

The collected charters of the Lower Rhine area, dating from the 13th century, reveal a continuous story of family patronage on the part of the successive archbishops of Köln.  This is particularly apparent in the case of the documentation relating to archbishop Konrad von Hochstaden, who was closely related to the families of Gelderland, Jülich, Limburg and Mark.  The archbishops were appointed from the dominant families in the region, and were closely involved in the constant petty feuding and changing alliances between the local nobles.  The documents show that the archbishop held a tight grip on the purse-strings, offering financial loans to the nobility in return for allegiance.

Chapter 6.    GRAVEN van GELDERLAND

The Chronologia Johannes de Beke records "Theodricus Hollandie, Henricus Gelrie, et Theodricus Clivie" as the principal vassals of the archbishop of Trier in 1156[183]

A.      GRAVEN van GELDERLAND

GERHARD von Wassenberg, son of DIETRICH "Flamens" Graf [von Wassenberg] & his wife --- (-before 9 Apr 1138).  The Chronicon Huberti names "Gerardus et Gozwinus filius eius [=Theodericum]" in 1082[184].  Graf von Wassenberg.  The Gesta Abbatum Trudonensium records that "Gerardum…de castello…Guassenberge et Gozwinum avunculum eius de castello…Heinesberge" introduced abbot Luipo into the abbey of Saint-Trond in 1085[185].  "Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed a donation of property "in Traiecto quam comes Gerardus de Wassenbergen invaserat" to St Servatius, Maastricht by charter dated 1087[186].  Graaf van Gelderland 1096.  "…Gerhardus comes de Gelleren et filius eius Gerhardus…" witnessed the charter dated 1117 under which Friedrich Archbishop of Köln donated property to Meregelpe[187].  His supposed marriage with "Clémence de Poitou, widow of Konrad I Comte de Luxembourg"[188] is based on a falsified document purporting to be the foundation act for the monastery of Schiffenberg in 1129[189]

m ---.  The name and origin of the wife of Gerhard is not known.  However, a clue may be provided by the Liber de Restauratione Sancti Martini Tornacensis which names "Hiolendem, filiam Gerardi Babinbergensis comitis" (her daughter) and specifies that she was "neptem Clementia Flandrensis comitissa"[190].  The relationship between Yolande and Ctss Clémence has not been established, but this text suggests that Yolande's mother may have been --- de Bourgogne, daughter of Guillaume II "le Grand" Comte de Bourgogne & his wife Etiennette ---, and therefore the sister of Clémence.  This is far from certain.  Another possibility is that "neptem" should be interpreted more broadly, and that Graf Gerhard's wife was a relative of Etiennette, wife of Guillaume Comte de Bourgogne, whose origin is not known. 

1.         JUTTA ([1087]-Rolduc 24 Jun 1151, bur Rolduc abbey).  The Chronicon Hanoniense records that "Balduinus comes Hanoniensis" married "Yolendem…comitis de Ghelra filiam", and that "aliam…eiusdem comitis de Ghelra filiam" married "Henricus dux de Lemborch" who inherited "castrum Wassemberghe" from her, a later passage adding that the father of the daughters was "comitis de Ghelra Gerardi"[191].  The chronology dictates that her husband was Walram [II] Graaf van Limburg not Hendrik.  Heiress of Wassenberg.  The necrology of Stavelot records the deaths "XVII Kal Aug" of "Walrani duci…dna Judith juge sua"[192]m ([1107/10]) WALRAM [II] "Paganus" van Limburg, son of HENDRIK I Graaf van Limburg, Duke of Lower Lotharingia & his second wife Adelheid von Botenstein ([1085]-6 Aug 1139).  Comte d'Arlon 1115-1119.  Graaf van Limburg 1119.  He was installed as WALERAN Duke of Lower Lotharingia in 1128. 

2.         YOLANDE van Geldern (-after 1122, bur Mons).  The Chronicon Hanoniense records that "Balduinus comes Hanoniensis" married "Yolendem…comitis de Ghelra filiam", in a later passage naming them "Balduinus comes Hanoniensis, Balduini comitis et Yde comitisse filius" and "Yolendem comitis de Ghelra Gerardi filiam"[193].  Heiress of Dodenweerd.  The Liber de Restauratione Sancti Martini Tornacensis names "Hiolendem, filiam Gerardi Babinbergensis comitis" as wife Comte Baudouin, specifying that she was "neptem Clementia Flandrensis comitissa"[194].  The relationship between Yolande and Ctss Clémence has not been established, although a possible interpretation of the text is that Yolande's mother was Clémence's sister and therefore another daughter of Guillaume I Comte Palatin de Bourgogne (see above).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Yolendis de Gelra" as mother of "comiti Balduini de Haynaco"[195].  The Chronicon Hanoniense records that "Yoandis comitissa vidua" married secondly "Godefrido de Bochesin castellano Valencenensi", by whom she was mother of "filium…Godefridum et filiam Bertam [uxorem] comiti de Duraz, deinde nupsit Egidio de Sancto Oberto a quo filium…Gerardum et filiam…[uxorem] Nicholao de Barbencione"[196].  Regent of Hainaut.  m firstly ([1107]) BAUDOUIN III Comte de Hainaut, son of BAUDOUIN II Comte de Hainaut & his wife Ida de Louvain (1088-1120).  m secondly GODEFROI [II] de Ribemont Châtelain de Valenciennes, son of GODEFROI [I] de Ribemont Châtelain de Valenciennes & his wife ---. 

3.         GERHARD [II] (-before 1134, bur Wassenberg).  "…Gerhardus comes de Gelleren et filius eius Gerhardus…" witnessed the charter dated 1117 under which Friedrich Archbishop of Köln donated property to Meregelpe[197]Graaf van Gelderland.  The Kronik van Arent toe Bocop records that "Gherit" was installed as "grave van Gelre" in 1107 and died in 1131, adding that he married "greve Floris van Hollants dochter"[198].  This latter statement is impossible from a chronological point of view as any daughter of Floris I Count of Holland would have been born too early, and any daughter of Count Floris II too late, to have married Graf Gerhard [II].  m ([1115/17]) as her first wife, ERMGARD van Zutphen, daughter of OTTO [II] "der Reiche" Graaf van Zutphen & his wife Judith --- (-after 1134).  She married secondly (before 1134) Conrad II Comte de Luxembourg.  Gerhard [II] & his wife had two children: 

a)         HENDRIK ([1117]-[27 May/10 Sep] 1182, bur Kloster Kamp).  The Kronik van Arent toe Bocop names "Henderick" as son of "Gheritgrave van Gelre", adding that he succeeded his father in 1131[199].  He succeeded as HENDRIK Graaf van Gelderland, Graaf van Zutphen. 

b)         SALOME (-before 1194).  The Annales Stadenses refer to the wife of "Heinricum frater Christiani [de Aldenburg]" as "sororem comitis Heinrici de Gelre" but does not name her[200]m HEINRICH [I] Graf von [Wildeshausen], son of EGILMAR [II] Graf & his wife Eilika von Rietberg (-1167). 

 

HENDRIK van Geldern, son of GERHARD [II] Graaf van Gelderland & his wife Ermgard van Zutphen ([1117]-[27 May/10 Sep] 1182, bur Kloster Kamp).  The Kronik van Arent toe Bocop names "Henderick" as son of "Gheritgrave van Gelre", adding that he succeeded his father in 1131 and also that he married "hertig Goewert van Brabans dochter"[201], but this last named person has not been identified.  He succeeded as HENDRIK Graaf van Gelderland, Graaf van Zutphen. 

m ([1135]) AGNES von Arnstein, daughter of [LUDWIG [II] Graf von Arnstein & his wife Udelhildis ---] (-before 1179).  The Vita Lodewici comitis de Arnstein records that "in castro Arnstein…comes…Lodewicus" had seven sisters, of whom the seventh married "in Sutpheniensem…comitiam"[202].  It is more likely from a chronological point of view that Agnes was the daughter of Ludwig [II] than Ludwig [I] but the primary source which confirms that this correct has not yet been identified.
