The Landgraves and Dukes of Brabant

Welcome to the thread about the Landgraves and Dukes of Brabant.





Arms of the Duchy of Brabant
~ ¤ ~



From this wikipedia article:

The Duchy of Brabant was formally erected in 1183/1184. The title "Duke of Brabant" was created by the German Emperor Frederick Barbarossa in favor of Henry I son of Godfrey III of Leuven (who was Duke of Lower Lotharingia at that time). The Duchy of Brabant was a feudal elevation of the since 1085/1086 existing title of Landgrave of Brabant. This was an Imperial fief which was assigned to Count Henry III of Leuven shortly after the death of the preceding Count of Brabant, Count Palatine Herman II of Lotharingia († September 20, 1085). Although the corresponding county was quite small (limited to the territory of the lower town of Brussels and 25km to the west, between the rivers Senne and Dender) its name was applied to the entire country under control of the Dukes from the 13th century on. In 1190, after the death of Godfrey III, Henry I also became Duke of Lotharingia. Formerly Lower Lotharingia, this title was now practically without territorial authority, but was borne by the later Dukes of Brabant as an honorific title.
In 1288, the Dukes of Brabant became also Duke of Limburg. The title fell to the Dukes of Burgundy in 1430. Later on, it followed with the Burgundian inheritance until the French Revolution, although the northern part of the territory of Brabant was actually governed by the United Provinces during the 17th and 18th century (see Generality Lands).

The Dukes of Brabant had some fine mausoleums and tombs burials across the low countries sadly most of them were lost firstly during the 1566 Calvinist Iconoclastic Fury and hat survived were destroyed by the French following the invading French Revolutionary forces as symbols of feudalism.

Henri II ,Duke of Brabant and Count of Louvain reigned from 1235 to 1248 he married Marie de Hohenstaufen & following her death he married Sophie de Thuringia.
Following the death of Henri II he was buried at Cistercian Villers-en-Brabant Abbaye and his tomb survived until 1796 when the abbey by sacked and looted by the invading French .

Engraving from 1641 of the now destroyed tomb of Henri II.
