INTRODUCTION

 

 

The names of an entirely new set of nobles families start to emerge from the primary sources in the county of Holland in the mid-12th century.  This document includes details of the early generations of some of these families. 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 1.    HEREN van ALTENA

 

 

The lordship of Altena was located north-west of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, south of the county of Holland and north-east of the lordship of Breda, in the present-day The Netherlands.  Independent lords of Altena are recorded from the mid-12th century until the death of Dirk [III] Heer van Altena in [1241/47], after which the lordship passed to his relative Willem [II] Heer van Horn.  The lordship of Altena was different from the county of Altena, which was situated south of Dortmund, on the river Lenne, in the present-day German state of Nordrhein-Westfalen (see LOWER RHINE, NOBILITY). 

 

 

1.         DIRK [I] van Altena (-after 27 Feb 1168).  "…Theodericus de Altena…" witnessed the charter dated 7 Oct 1143 under which Heribert Bishop of Utrecht confirmed the privileges of Egmond church[1].  "…Theodericus de Altena, Florentius de Vorne, Isbrandus de Harlhem, Gerardus de Harlhem…Hugo de Vorne…" witnessed the charter dated 27 Feb 1168 which records a treaty between Floris III Count of Holland and Philippe Count of Flanders[2]

 

2.         DIRK [II] von Altena (-after 1203).  Klaversma indicates a charter dated 1189 under which “Rutger van Meerheim” donated property “de Winricushoeve te Linne” to Kamp abbey, witnessed by “Dirk aartsdiaken van Luik [cognatus of the donor]...Dirk van Altena en zijn zoon Boudewijn...[3].  The date of this document suggests that Dirk [II] was a different person from Dirk [I].  “...Theodericus de Altena...” witnessed the charter dated 1203 which records a treaty between Otto Graaf van Gelre and Henri Duke of Brabant[4]m ---.  The name of Dirk´s wife is not known.  Dirk & his wife had one child: 

a)         BOUDEWIJN van Altena (-after 21 Sep 1213).  Klaversma indicates a charter dated 1189 under which “Rutger van Meerheim” donated property “de Winricushoeve te Linne” to Kamp abbey, witnessed by “Dirk aartsdiaken van Luik [cognatus of the donor]...Dirk van Altena en zijn zoon Boudewijn...[5].  "Boudwinus de Halthena, Hugo de Vorne, Symon de Harlehem, Willelmus de Theylinge…" witnessed the charter dated 21 Aug 1200 under which Dirk VII Count of Holland donated property to Rijnsburg abbey[6].  "Hugo de Voirne, Baldwinus de Haltena…Hugo de Strien…" witnessed the charter dated 21 Sep 1213 under which Willem I Count of Holland granted protection to Geertruidenberg[7]

 

 

[Three] brothers, parents not known.  From a chronological point of view, it is possible that their parents were Dirk [II] van Altena and his wife.  Klaversma assumes that Dirk [III] was the son of Boudewijn van Altena, but it is not clear whether this is based on primary source documentation or is speculation[8].    

1.         --- (-[before 1212]).  It is probable that both parents of Dirk had died before [1212]: "Theodoricus dominus de Autena" renounced rights over "mansum unum in villa...Mirda" in favour of Averboden, for the souls of "patris et matris mee", by undated charter[9], maybe dated to [1212] which is the date of another charter in which the same donor donated "decimam...Mirta" to Averboden[10]m --- (-[before 1212]).  [Five] children: 

a)         DIRK [III] van Altena (-[26 Jun 1241/1247])A charter dated 3 Nov 1200, which records a treaty between Henri I Duke of Brabant and Dirk VII Count of Holland, names "homines comitis: Rutgerus de Merhem, Hugo de Vorne, Theodericus de Halthena…"[11].  "...Theoderici de Althena…" witnessed the charter dated Mar 1204 under which Dirk VII Count of Holland donated property to the church of Alne[12].  A charter dated 1206 (after 14 Oct), which records that Louis Comte de Looz swore homage to Henri Duke of Brabant, names "obsides comitis: Rotgerus de Merehem, Theodoricus de Altena…"[13].  "…Hugo de Worn, Theodericus de Alcena, Simon et Johannes et Isbrand de Harlen, Willielmus de Teylinge, Walpertus et Florentinus de Leda, Arnaand et Henr. de Riswic, Walterus de Egmund" witnessed the letter dated 1207 from "Adelheidis comitissa Hollandie" to John King of England concerning the marriage of "comes de Los" and "filiam meam"[14].  A charter dated 1212 records an agreement between "Theodericus de Altena et Johannes de Husden", sworn by "ipse Theodericus de Altena et frater suus Walterus et Henricus patruus eius…"[15]"Theodoricus dominus de Autena" donated "decimam...Mirta" to Averboden, with the consent of "uxoris nostræ Mariæ et nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi", by charter dated 1212[16]A charter dated 15 May 1219 confirmed that the abbey of St Pantaleon, Köln granted "villam in Wishem" to "Wilhelmo de Hürne, viro nobili, advocato in Wishem", witnessed by "Nobiles, Theodericus de Althena…"[17].  "Nobilies homines mei Theodoricus de Althena, Albertus de Kuch, Theodorus de Vorne…" witnessed the charter dated Jul 1220 under which Willem I Count of Holland granted Dordrecht and other property to his wife[18].  "Dominus Theodericus de Altena" confirmed property "in villa mea Hunen" to Berne abbey, for the soul of "uxoris mee domine Ymagine", by charter dated 26 Feb 1230, witnessed by "…Arnoldus avunculus meus…et W. frater meus…"[19].  "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland by charter dated 7 May 1230 witnessed by "…Walterus de Altena…"[20].  "Theodericus dominus de Altena" granted property at Schalwijk to certain men of Zeeland by charter dated 8 Aug 1233, witnessed by "Wilhelmus et Engelbertus de Horne, Rutgerus de Wickerode…"[21].  "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena" by charter dated 1235[22].  A charter dated 26 Jun 1241 records the reconciliation of "Th doctus dominus in Altena" with "Nicolaus dictus de Ema et Henricus filius suus ministeriales nostri", naming "domino Wilhelmo de Horne et fratre suo domino Engelberto…dominus Wilhelmus dictus de Strina…" among the fiduciaries[23]m firstly MARIA [van Horn, daughter of --- van Horn & his wife ---] (-after 1224).  "Theodoricus dominus de Autena" donated "decimam...Mirta" to Averboden, with the consent of "uxoris nostræ Mariæ et nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi", by charter dated 1212[24].  Her suggested parentage is based on the following reasoning.  The “nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi" in this 1212 document can be identified as Engelbert and Willem van Horn.  However, the sources appear contradictory regarding the precise relationship link between the Altena and Horn families.  Under a charter dated 1224, Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden and noted the donation "in villa de Brusthem" which was made by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[25].  This is similar wording to the 1212 document.  For present purposes it is assumed that "nepotum" can be interpreted in these two documents in its strict sense of nephew.  The presence of the wife of Dirk [III] van Altena in both documents suggests that the donor´s relationship with the Horn brothers was through her, which suggests that Dirk [III]´s wife was the paternal aunt of the two brothers.  However, a contrary line of argument is indicated by a charter dated 7 May 1230, under which "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland[26].  The word "consanguineus" suggests a blood relationship, not a relationship by marriage.  If this is the correct interpretation of the second document, it suggests that Dirk [III] van Altena was the maternal uncle of the Horn brothers, their mother being Dirk [III]´s sister.  This appears to be supported by the charter dated 1235 under which "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena", assuming that "avunculus" should be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle (which is far from certain)[27].  Wolters cites a charter dated 1244 which he quotes (in translation) as providing that Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode[28].  However, it is not known whether "oncle maternel" is the correct translation of the wording of the original charter which has not yet been seen.  This second line of argument also appears corroborated by the succession of Willem [II] Heer van Horn as Heer van Altena after the death of Dirk [III] van Altena in [1241/47], which is more easily explained if he was descended from Dirk [III]´s sister.  m secondly IMAGINA, daughter of ---.  "Dominus Theodericus de Altena" confirmed property "in villa mea Hunen" to Berne abbey, for the soul of "uxoris mee domine Ymagine", by charter dated 26 Feb 1230[29]

b)         WOUTER van Altena (-after 7 May 1230).  A charter dated 1212 records an agreement between "Theodericus de Altena et Johannes de Husden", sworn by "ipse Theodericus de Altena et frater suus Walterus et Henricus patruus eius…"[30].  "Dominus Theodericus de Altena" confirmed property "in villa mea Hunen" to Berne abbey, for the soul of "uxoris mee domine Ymagine", by charter dated 26 Feb 1230, witnessed by "…Arnoldus avunculus meus…et W. frater meus…"[31].  "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland by charter dated 7 May 1230 witnessed by "…Walterus de Altena…"[32]

c)         [--- van Altena .  The sources appear contradictory regarding the precise relationship link between the Altena and Horn families.  The documentation which suggests that the first wife of Dirk van Altena was the paternal aunt of the two brothers Willem and Engelbert van Horne is discussed above.  However, a contrary line of argument is indicated by a charter dated 7 May 1230, under which "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland[33].  The word "consanguineus" suggests a blood relationship, not a relationship by marriage.  If this is the correct interpretation of the second document, it suggests that Dirk van Altena was the maternal uncle of the Horn brothers, their mother being Dirk´s sister.  This appears to be supported by the charter dated 1235 under which "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena", assuming that "avunculus" should be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle (which is far from certain)[34].  Wolters cites a charter dated 1244 which he quotes (in translation) as providing that Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode[35].  However, it is not known whether "oncle maternel" is the correct translation of the wording of the original charter which has not yet been seen.  The hypothesis also appears corroborated by the succession of her grandson Willem [II] Heer van Horn as Heer van Altena after the death of Dirk [III] van Altena in [1241/47].  m --- van Horn, son of ---.] 

d)         [ALEIDE .  Klaversma indicates two sources which indicate that Aleide, sister of Dirk van Altena, married firstly “Johannes van of in Potthe” and secondly “Hendrik van Erkenteel alias Argenteau[36]m firstly JAN [van] Potthe, son of ---.  m secondly HENRI d´Argenteau, son of ---.  "Nobiles, Theodericus de Althena, Henricus de Archenteyl, Ruthgerus de Bremich..." witnessed the charter dated 15 May 1219 under which Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed that Köln St Pantaleon had leased "villam in Wishem" to “Wilhelmo de Hürne[37].] 

e)         [SOPHIE van Altena ([1190/95]-after 1247).  Klaversma indicates that Sophie was the sister of Dirk van Altena[38].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.   However, it is suggested by the charter dated 1247 under which "Leonius castellanus Brusellensis et Sophia uxor mea" confirmed property "insuper Cruchtene et Werte" to "domini Wilhelmi de Altena", inherited from "domini Theoderici bone memorie de Altena"[39].  Her birth date is estimated based on her having two children by her first husband.  Her two marriages are confirmed by the charter dated Mar 1230 under which “Leonius Bruxellensis castellanus et Sophia uxor mea” confirmed that "Arnoldus de Grimbergis filius predictæ Sophiæ uxoris meæ et Arnoldi Grimbergæ domini" donated property to Dendermonde[40]m firstly ARNOUT van Grimbergen, son of GERARD [II] Heer van Grimbergen & his wife Mathilde van Ninove (-1211).  m secondly LEON [I] Châtelain de Bruxelles, son of GEOFFROY Châtelain de Bruxelles & his second wife Helwide --- (-after 1252). 

2.         HENDRIK van Altena (-after 1212).  A charter dated 1212 records an agreement between "Theodericus de Altena et Johannes de Husden", sworn by "ipse Theodericus de Altena et frater suus Walterus et Henricus patruus eius…"[41]

3.         [ARNOLD (-after 26 Feb 1230).  "Dominus Theodericus de Altena" confirmed property "in villa mea Hunen" to Berne abbey, for the soul of "uxoris mee domine Ymagine", by charter dated 26 Feb 1230, witnessed by "…Arnoldus avunculus meus…et W. frater meus…"[42].  It is not known whether Arnold was the paternal or maternal uncle of the donor.] 

 

 

1.         [WILLEM van Altena (-after Jan 1250).  "Leonius castellanus Brusellensis et Sophia uxor mea" confirmed property "insuper Cruchtene et Werte" to "domini Wilhelmi de Altena", inherited from "domini Theoderici bone memorie de Altena", by charter dated 1247[43].  "Johannem dominum de Huesden" reached agreement with the town of ´s Hertogenbosch concerning tolls at Heusden by charter dated Jan 1250 witnessed by "Willelmus dominus de Althena frater suus…"[44].  It is possible that this is the same person as Willem [II] Heer van Horn (see below) whose family inherited the lordship of Altena.]

Chapter 8.    HEREN van HORN

 

 

The lordships of Horn, Cuyk and Kessel emerged on the left bank of the Maas in the area of the pagus Maasgau[196].  Horn was situated on the left bank of the river Maas, north-east of the county of Looz and south of the county of Kessel, the town of Weert later becoming its capital[197].  The territory is today located in the province of Limburg, in the south-east of the kingdom of The Netherlands.  The lordship of Horn consisted originally of the villages of Horn, Haelen, Buggenum, Nunhem, Heythuyzen, Roggel and Neer, which van de Boel suggests formed part of the “county of Hocht/Huste” [not yet identified] in the 10th century[198].  A useful description of the territorial extent of the lordship of Horn in the 13th century is provided by the charter dated Aug 1243 under which Willem [II] Heer van Horn declared the fiefdoms which he held from the comte de Looz[199]

 

According to Wolters, the Heren van Horn descended from Immo Comte de Looz (see LOWER LOTHARINGIAN NOBILITY) but his sources are incomplete and those which he does cite do not inspire confidence in the accuracy of the suggested descent[200].  In particular, the Vita Andreæ, first abbot of Averboden, in the Chronicle written by Nicolas Hogeland Abbot of Middelburg, names in 1131 "Theodoricum de Los primum dominum de Hornes", identified as Thierry son of Immo Comte de Looz[201].  Klaversma notes that this source is a 17th century forgery and is therefore unreliable[202]

 

 

The information available from primary source documentation is insufficiently precise to guess with any confidence at the family relationships between the first five individuals of the Horn family who are named below. 

 

1.         ENGELBERT [I] van Horn (-after 1102).  “Comes Gerhardus [de Gelren], Engelbertus castellanus et frater eius dominus Walterus, dominus Wilhelmus et dominus Rogerus de Kesnic, dominus Vdo de Lo. et dominus Engelbertus de Hurne...” witnessed the charter dated 1102 under which “Anselmus” offered “filiam meam Methildem” to Thorn abbey “per manus Gerhardi comitis de Gelren[203]

 

2.         --- van Horn (-killed in battle 1146).  The Chronicon Diestense records that “Arnoldus [...vel Arnulphus dominus de Diest], domini de Wezemael, de Rotselaer, de Bierbaco, de Leefdale, Hoerne, Transingys, Ravies” were killed in battle in 1146[204]

 

3.         ENGELBERT [II] van Horn (-after 22 Feb 1166).  "…Engelbertus de Hornin…" witnessed the charter dated to [1138/44] which records the ratification of the exchange of property between "Godescalcus…frater comitis Gerhardi de Lo" and the church of Rees[205].  Reinald Archbishop of Köln confirmed the foundation of a monastery at "castrum suum Mere" by "matrona Hildegundis cometissa de Are…filii sui Herimanni quem tunc unicum habebat", for the soul of "filii sui Theoderici quondam comitis Arensis", by charter dated 22 Feb 1166, witnessed by "…Engilbertus de Hurnen…"[206]

 

4.         WILLEM [I] van Horn (-after 1189).  Willem van Horn is named in a charter dated 1189 under which “Rutger van Mereheim” donated property to Kamp abbey before leaving on crusade[207].  The register of the archives of Roermond include a reference to “Theodericus aartsdiaken van Luik” confirming the donation of “Winricus mansus in Linna...rechten en allodia te Bemela” made by “Rutger van Mereheym” to Kamp abbey on leaving for crusade, dated 1189 at Meerheim, witnessed by “...Willem van Hornen, Dirk van Altena en zijn zoon Boudewijn, de voogd van Roermond, Herman van Holcho...[208].  [“...Duo fratres de Hornen, Otto de Buren...” witnessed the charter dated 1191 under which “Otto...comes Gelrie et Rychardis uxor mea” donated property “in curia Putten” to Werden abbey[209].  The names of the two brothers are not stated in the document but, from a chronological point of view only, it is possible that they were Willem [I] and Engelbert [III].] 

 

5.         ENGELBERT [III] van Horn (-after 1203).  [“...Duo fratres de Hornen, Otto de Buren...” witnessed the charter dated 1191 under which “Otto...comes Gelrie et Rychardis uxor mea” donated property “in curia Putten” to Werden abbey[210].  The names of the two brothers are not stated in the document but, from a chronological point of view only, it is possible that they were Willem [I] and Engelbert [III].]  “...Egelbertus de Horne...” is named as present in a charter dated 6 Mar 1196 which records a treaty between Henri Duke of Brabant and “comitem Gelriæ[211].  “...Egelbertus de Horne...” witnessed the charter dated 1203 which records a treaty between Otto Graaf van Gelre and Henri Duke of Brabant[212].  

 

 

1.         GERARD [I] van Horn (-after 1220).  Heer van Horn.  "…Gerardus de Hürne…" is named as present in a charter dated Aug 1220 under which records the peace agreement between Engelbert Archbishop of Köln and "dominum Walramum comitem de Luzelenburch"[213].  "…comes de Lon, Gerhardus de Hurne et socer eius, Hermannus nobilis advocatus…" witnessed the charter dated 1220 under which Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the foundation of the church of Rade near Suchtelen[214]

 

 

1.         --- van Horn .  From a chronological point of view, it is possible that this person is the same as Willem [I] van Horn who is named above.  If that is correct, it may help explain the joint appearance of members of the Horn and Altena families as witnesses to the 1189 document which is quoted above, assuming that this person´s wife was a member of the Altena family as suggested below.  m [--- van Altena, daughter of ---.  The documentation which suggests that the first wife of Dirk [III] van Altena was the paternal aunt of the two brothers Willem and Engelbert van Horne is discussed below.  However, a contrary line of argument is indicated by a charter dated 7 May 1230, under which "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland[215].  The word "consanguineus" suggests a blood relationship, not a relationship by marriage.  If this is the correct interpretation of the second document, it suggests that Dirk [III] van Altena was the maternal uncle of the Horn brothers, their mother being Dirk´s sister.  This appears to be supported by the charter dated 1235 under which "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena", assuming that "avunculus" should be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle (which is far from certain)[216].  Wolters cites a charter dated 1244 which he quotes (in translation) as providing that Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode[217].  However, it is not known whether "oncle maternel" is the correct translation of the wording of the original charter which has not yet been seen.  The hypothesis also appears corroborated by the succession of her grandson Willem [II] Heer van Horn as Heer van Altena after the death of Dirk [III] van Altena in [1241/47].  Two children: 

a)         WILLEM [II] van Horn (-[1237/41]).  Heer van Horn.  A charter dated 15 May 1219 confirmed that the abbey of St Pantaleon, Köln granted "villam in Wishem" to "Wilhelmo de Hürne, viro nobili, advocato in Wishem", witnessed by "Nobiles, Theodericus de Althena…"[218].  Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden by charter dated 1224 which refers to the donation "in villa de Brusthem" by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[219].  "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland by charter dated 7 May 1230 witnessed by "Nicholaus de Putte, Willelmus de Striene…"[220].  "Theodericus dominus de Altena" granted property at Schalwijk to certain men of Zeeland by charter dated 8 Aug 1233, witnessed by "Wilhelmus et Engelbertus de Horne, Rutgerus de Wickerode…"[221].  "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena" by charter dated 1235[222].  Willem van Horn witnessed the charter dated 1237 under which Otto Graaf van Gelre reached agreement with Hendrik Heer van ´s Heerenberg concerning the advocacy of Emmerick[223].  A charter dated 26 Jun 1241 records the reconciliation of "Th doctus dominus in Altena" with "Nicolaus dictus de Ema et Henricus filius suus ministeriales nostri", naming "domino Wilhelmo de Horne et fratre suo domino Engelberto…dominus Wilhelmus dictus de Strina…" among the fiduciaries[224]m ---.  The name of Willem´s wife is not known.  Willem [II] & his wife had two children: 

i)          WILLEM [III] van Horn (-1264, bur Keysersbosch)Heer van Horn.  "Wilhelmus dominus de Altena et de Horne" acknowledged holding "grefliche gerichte…in Geystingis…" in fief from "domino meo comite de Loos" by charter dated 1243[225]

-         see below

ii)         A--- van Horn (-after 27 Jul 1260).  "Theodericus comes Clevensis et Theodericus frater eius dictus Lof" settled a dispute between “Johannes dominus de Huesden” and “dominus Robertus et dominus Henricus fratres eius”, with the advice of “Ottonis comitis Ghelrensis, W. domini de Altena, domini A. fratris eius, Th. domini de Herlar, H. de Merwyc et aliorum consanguineorum suorum...”, by charter dated 27 Jul 1260[226]

b)         ENGELBERT van Horn .  Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden by charter dated 1224 which refers to the donation "in villa de Brusthem" by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[227].  "Theodericus dominus de Altena" granted property at Schalwijk to certain men of Zeeland by charter dated 8 Aug 1233, witnessed by "Wilhelmus et Engelbertus de Horne, Rutgerus de Wickerode…"[228].  A charter dated 26 Jun 1241 records the reconciliation of "Th doctus dominus in Altena" with "Nicolaus dictus de Ema et Henricus filius suus ministeriales nostri", naming "domino Wilhelmo de Horne et fratre suo domino Engelberto…dominus Wilhelmus dictus de Strina…" among the fiduciaries[229]

2.         [MARIA [van Horn] (-after 1224)"Theodoricus dominus de Autena" donated "decimam...Mirta" to Averboden, with the consent of "uxoris nostræ Mariæ et nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi", by charter dated 1212[230].  Her suggested parentage is based on the following reasoning.  The “nepotum nostrorum Engelberti et Willelmi" in this 1212 document can be identified as Engelbert and Willem van Horn.  However, the sources appear contradictory regarding the precise relationship link between the Altena and Horn families.  Under a charter dated 1224, Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden and noted the donation "in villa de Brusthem" which was made by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[231].  This is similar wording to the 1212 document.  For present purposes it is assumed that "nepotum" can be interpreted in these two documents in its strict sense of nephew.  The presence of the wife of Dirk [III] van Altena in both documents suggests that the donor´s relationship with the Horn brothers was through her, which suggests that Dirk [III]´s wife was the paternal aunt of the two brothers.  However, a contrary line of argument is indicated by a charter dated 7 May 1230, under which "Theodoricus dictus dominus de Altena…et consanguineus meus Wilhelmus de Horne" recognised "castrum meum de Altena" as a fief held from Floris IV Count of Holland[232].  The word "consanguineus" suggests a blood relationship, not a relationship by marriage.  If this is the correct interpretation of the second document, it suggests that Dirk [III] van Altena was the maternal uncle of the Horn brothers, their mother being Dirk´s sister.  This appears to be supported by the charter dated 1235 under which "Wilhelmus dominus de Hoirne" confirmed "avunculus meus…dominus Theodericus de Altena" in possession of "castri de Altena", assuming that "avunculus" should be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle (which is far from certain)[233].  Wolters cites a charter dated 1244 which he quotes (in translation) as providing that Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode[234].  However, it is not known whether "oncle maternel" is the correct translation of the wording of the original charter which has not yet been seen.  This second line of argument also appears corroborated by the succession of Willem [II] Heer van Horn as Heer van Altena after the death of Dirk [III] van Altena in [1241/47], which is more easily explained if he was descended from Dirk [III]´s sister.  m DIRK [III] Heer van Altena, son of --- (-[26 Jun 1241/1247]).] 

 

 

WILLEM [III] van Horn, son of WILLEM [II] Heer van Horn & his wife --- van Altena (-1264, bur Keysersbosch)Heer van Horn.  Engelbert Archbishop of Köln confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Averboden by charter dated 1224 which refers to the donation "in villa de Brusthem" by "vir nobilis Theodericus de Altena" with the consent of "uxoris sue ac nepotum suorum Willelmi et Engelberti"[235].  "Wilhelmus dominus de Altena et de Horne" acknowledged holding "grefliche gerichte…in Geystingis…" in fief from "domino meo comite de Loos" by charter dated 1243[236].  Willem van Horn confirmed the donation of property by "son oncle maternel Thierry Seigneur d´Altena" to the abbey of Herckenrode by charter dated 1244[237].  Heer van Altena [1241/47].  "Wilhelmus dominus de Altena" confirmed “decimas in Woldrichem in Alle et dimidiam partem decimarum in Gesen” to Utrecht by charter dated 21 Mar 1259[238].  "Theodericus comes Clevensis et Theodericus frater eius dictus Lof" settled a dispute between “Johannes dominus de Huesden” and “dominus Robertus et dominus Henricus fratres eius”, with the advice of “Ottonis comitis Ghelrensis, W. domini de Altena, domini A. fratris eius, Th. domini de Herlar, H. de Merwyc et aliorum consanguineorum suorum...”, by charter dated 27 Jul 1260[239]

m ---.  The name of Willem´s wife is not known. 

Willem [III] & his wife had two children: 

1.         WILLEM [IV] van Horn (-killed in battle Zierickzee 1304, bur Keysersbosch)Heer van Horn.  Jean Duke of Brabant granted revenue (“redditus nostros”) from “Buscho-Ducis...Laet et Ghieleyde”, after the death (“post decessum”) of “dominæ Mariæ quondam uxoris domini de Peruwez bonæ memoriæ dominæ de Ninive”, to "Domino Willelmo domino de Hoern" by charter dated 2 Feb 1271, witnessed by "Henricus de Lovanio dominus de Harstallio, Walterus Berthout dominus Magliniæ et Henricus dominus de Bautershem"[240].  The wording of the document suggests that Marie was still alive at the time and that the grant would take place after her death.  "Wilhelmus de Althena et de Horne dominus et Wilhelmus filius suus primogenitus" granted “decimam de Uppel” to “nos Lodowico kastellano”, provided that “uxor sua et filii sui” transfer it to “Beatrici filie sue cum Johanne de Merwede viro eius”, by charter dated 25 Apr 1277[241].  "Willelmus dominus de Horne et Altena" donated property to Keyserbosch, with the consent of "Willelmo primogenito nostro", by charter dated 1285[242].  "Willem ridder van Hoorne heere van Outena" sold half of property “in Vorenzaterwairt” to “onsen...neve den heren Willem heere van Striene” by charter dated 2 Feb 1285[243].  The relationship between the Horn and Strijen families has not been traced.  "Willelmus dominus de Horne et Willelmus primogenitus eius milites et Theodericus eiusdem domini Willelmi filius præpositus ecclesiæ Trajectensis inferioris" swore allegiance to "Ioannem ducem Lotharingiæ, Brabantiæ et Limburgi" by charter dated 1193 (misdated, 1293?)[244].  "Willem heere van Hoerne ende van Altena, ende Diederic provost van Sinte Salvatoere in Utrecht, sone des voirseyds heeren Willems, ende Willem, riddere, des voirsz. heeren Willems oudste sone, ende Gherard, ridder, syn joncste sone, ende Engelbrecht canonic van Sente lambrechts te Ludeke, sone des voirgenoemde heeren Willems" proclaimed their innonence in the assassination of Floris V Count of Holland by letters dated 12 Feb 1299[245].  [m firstly MARGUERITE de Looz, daughter of ARNAUD [IV] Comte de Looz & his wife Jeanne de Chiny (-before 1275).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed only by a monumental inscription at the Carmelite Abbey in Brussels which records the death of her son "monseinour ly cuens Geerarts sire de Hornes, Wiert, Altena, etc., grand-veneur héréditable de l´Empire…fieulx à monseinour ly cuens Willaumes, sire des dits lieux, et à madame Marguerite, fiele a ly cuens Arnould de Looz"[246].  This inscription is discussed in detail by van de Boel who suggests that it is unreliable as a later production[247].  The language clearly indicates that the inscription is not contemporary.  However, it is not known whether it might have been based on information from earlier reliable sources.  This possibility should not be dismissed as other parts of the same inscription, relating to other members of the Horn family, are corroborated by other documentation.  A connection between the Looz and Horn families is indicated by the confirmation given by Arnaud [V] Comte de Looz to Geraard van Horn for his grant of property to his wife (see below).  However, the document in question does not specify any family relationship between the two, in contrast to the case of one of the witnesses whom Comte Arnaud describes as “nostrum consanguineum”.  It is possible, therefore, that the confirmation was given only because Comte Arnaud was Gerard´s suzerain.  The chronology of the Looz family indicates that it is possible for a daughter of Comte Arnaud [V] to have married Willem [IV] van Horn.]  m [secondly] AGNES, daughter of --- (-after 1275).  “Willelmus vir nobilis dominus de Horne” sold property “in Blarthem, que dominus dux nobis allodialia reddidit” to “Henrico dicto Coman opidano in Buscho”, with the consent of “Agnes uxor ipsius domini de Horne”, by charter dated 1 Oct 1271[248].  Van de Boel cites another source which names “een vrouwe van Horn...Agnes” in a 1275 donation to Keiserbosch[249].  He suggests that the wife of Willem [III] was related to the Perwez/Brabant family.  m [thirdly] (before 13 Jun 1278) ALEIDIS van Bernhamme, daughter of ---.  “Wilhelmus nobilis vir de Horne miles” and his wife “Aleijdis de Bernhamme” donated property to Klooster Bethelehem near Doetinchem by charter dated 13 Jun 1278[250].  Willem [IV] & his [first] wife had four children:
