INTRODUCTION

 

 

The duchy of Lorraine was the rump of the early medieval duchy of Upper Lotharingia, centred on Nancy.  The difficulty is pinpointing the date when "Lotharingia" transformed into "Lorraine".  This document sets out the family of the dukes from the accession of the Matfriede dynasty in the mid-11th century.  However, as can be seen below, contemporary sources continue to refer to the duke as "dux Lotharingiæ" until well into the 14th century.  The duchy remained within imperial territory, the dukes being suzerains of the emperor/king of Germany.  However, Lorraine gradually lost status and territory, especially after the rise of the comtes de Bar to the west of the duchy.  Lorraine was even briefly placed under the suzerainty of Bar during the early years of the 13th century[1].  Duke Thibaut I became embroiled in the dispute over the succession to the county of Champagne in between 1216 and 1218, when Friedrich II King of Germany invaded Lorraine and took the duke back to Germany as a prisoner. 

 

The gradual assimilation of Lorraine into the French sphere of influence started with the reign of Duke Raoul, who succeeded in 1329 and spent most of his reign at the court of Philippe VI King of France.  A significant increase in the number of marriages into French comital families can also be observed from the end of the 13th century.  However, formal French acquisition of Lorraine territory did not accelerate until the mid-17th century, and the duchy was only finally annexed by the kingdom of France in 1766 after the death of Stanislas Leszczinski Duke of Lorraine, who was the father-in-law of King Louis XV.

GERARD 1048-1070, THIERRY II 1070-1115

 

GERARD, son of GERHARD Graf [von Metz] & his wife Gisela --- (-Remiremont [14 Apr] or 11 Aug [1070]).  The Notitiæ Fundationis Monasterii Bosonis-Villæ names (in order) "Adalbertus, Gerhardus, Cuonradus, Adalbero, Beatrix, Cuono, Huoda abbatissa, Azelinus, Ida, Adeleth" as children of "Gerhardus comes [et] Gisela"[2].  In an earlier passage, the same source names "Odelrico comite et Gerhardo duce" as sons and successors of "Gerhardus comes marchio [et] cum uxore sua Gisela"[3].  Comte de Metz, Comte de Châtenois.  Emperor Heinrich III appointed him as GERARD Duke of Upper Lotharingia after his brother was killed in battle in Nov 1048.  The dating clause of a charter dated 15 Oct 1062, which records a judgment of Udo Bishop of Toul, states “regnante Henrico IV Rom. Rege, Duce Gerardo, Ardulpho Tullensi comite...[4].  "Gerardus…Lothariensium dux" donated property to Echternach abbey by charter dated 11 Apr 1067 which names "uxoris mea Hadvidis filiique nostre Theoderici…patris mei Gerhardi matrisque meæ Gislæ"[5].  According to the 14th century chronicle of Jean de Bayon, Duke Gérard was poisoned[6].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy records the death "11 Aug" of "Gerardus dux"[7]

m HADWIDE de Namur, daughter of ALBERT I Comte de Namur & his wife Ermengarde of Lower Lotharingia [Carolingian] ([1005/10]-28 Jan [1080]).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Hadewidem et Emmam de Los" as the two daughters of "Ermengardis [filiæ Karoli ducis]" and as mother of "Theodericum ducem et Gerardum comitem fratres"[8].  It is likely that Hedwig was born during that latter part of the married life of her parents, given her own death in [1080] and her father's death before 1010.  The Liber Memoriales of Remiremont records the donation of "Haduydis ducissa…consentientibus filiis suis duce Teoderico atque comite Girardo"[9].  "Hadewidis ductrix" founded the abbey of Châtenois by charter dated to after 1075, confirmed "post obitum ductricis Hadewidis" by "dux Theodericus filius eius"[10]

Duke Gérard & his wife had four children: 

1.         THIERRY de Lorraine (-30 Dec 1115).  The Notitiæ Fundationis Monasterii Bosonis-Villæ records the succession of "dux Theodericus puer parvulus Gerhardi ducis filius"[11], although, considering the estimated birth date range of his mother, Thierry must have been adult when his father died.  He succeeded his father in 1070 as THIERRY II Duke of Lorraine, opposed by his brother to whom he ceded territories which became the county of Vaudémont in Apr 1073 after waging war for two years.  Weakened by this conflict, Louis Comte de Mousson claimed the title duke from Duke Thierry.  "Hadewidis ductrix" founded the abbey of Châtenois by charter dated to after 1075, confirmed "post obitum ductricis Hadewidis" by "dux Theodericus filius eius"[12].  During the investiture crisis, Duke Thierry supported Emperor Heinrich IV who enabled him to take control of Metz after expelling Hermann Bishop of Metz[13].  Pibo Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and named "dux Theodericus et Simon puer eius filius, et frater ducis Gerardus comes et Renardus comes Tillensis" by charter dated 10 Oct 1091[14].  Emperor Heinrich V granted him the title "Marquis" in [1114][15].  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[16].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy records the death "30 Dec" of "Theodoricus dux"[17]m firstly ([1080]) as her second husband, HEDWIG von Formbach, widow of GERHARD von Süpplingenburg Graf im Harzgau, daughter of FRIEDRICH Graf von Formbach & his wife Gertrud von Haldensleben (-[1090/93]).  According to Poull, Duke Thierry unsuccessfully petitioned the Pope in early 1079 to marry Agnès d'Aquitaine, widow of Pierre Comte de Savoie, which if correct means that his first marriage inevitably took place after this[18]m secondly (Han-sur-Lesse 15 Aug 1095) as her second husband, GERTRUDE de Flandre, widow of HENRI III Comte de Louvain, daughter of ROBERT I "Friso" Count of Flanders & his wife Gertrud of Saxony [Billung] (-[1115/26]).  Her parentage and both her marriages are deduced from the Cartulaire de Saint-Bertin in which is named "Gertrude filia Roberti Frisonis, vidua Henrici Bruselensis" mother of "Theodericum" who is in turn named "filium Theoderici ducis de Helsath"[19].  The Genealogica Comitum Flandriæ Bertiniana specifies that "Robertus comes cognomento Frisio" had three daughters "tercia Theoderico comiti Alsatie [nupsit]"[20].  Duke Thierry II & his first wife had [three] children:

a)         SIMON de Lorraine (-13/14 Jan 1139, bur Stürzelbronn).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Symonem ducem" as son of "Theodericum ducem"[21].  Pibo Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and named "dux Theodericus et Simon puer eius filius, et frater ducis Gerardus comes et Renardus comes Tillensis" by charter dated 10 Oct 1091[22].  He succeeded his father in 1115 as SIMON I Duke of Lorraine

-        see below.  

b)         GERTRUDE [Petronilla] de Lorraine (-23 May 1144, bur Rijnsburg).  The Annales Egmundani name "Petronilla" as widow of "Florentius crassus comes filius Theoderici" but do not give her origin[23].  The Chronologia Johannes de Beke records the marriage of Count Floris and "Petronillam Lotharii cesaris sororem"[24].  The Annales Magdeburgenses name "Gertrudeis comitissa de…Holland…soror Lotherii Saxonis ducis" when recording her rebellion in 1123[25].  Regent of Holland for her son Count Dirk VI during his minority.  She founded the Abbey of Rijnsburg in 1133.  The Annales Egmundani record the death in 1144 of "Petronilla comitissa uxor Florentii crassi comitis" and her burial at "Rinsburch"[26].  The Chronologia Johannes de Beke record that "Petronilla…comitissa" became a nun at Rijnsburg after her husband died, and died and was buried there "X Kal Iun"[27].  Beke's Egmondsch Necrologium records the death "1144 X Kal Iun" of "Petronilla comitissa"[28]m (1113) FLORIS II Count of Holland, son of DIRK V Count [of Holland] & his wife Othelindis --- (-2 Mar 1121). 

c)         [HARA (-after 21 Mar 1156).  "Simon...dux Lotharingiæ et marchio" donated “ecclesiam...de Pixerecourt...partem decimarum villæ...de Margeville et Augecourt” to the abbey of Bouxières-aux-Dames, in the presence of “soror mea domina Hara abbatissæ”, by charter dated 30 Mar 1130[29].  Abbess of Bouxières-aux-Dames.  Although described as sister of Duke Simon in the charter quoted above, there are three possibilities: full sister, uterine sister born from his mother´s first marriage, half-sister born from his father´s second marriage.  Matthæus...dux Lotharingiæ et marchio” confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Bouxières-aux-Dames donated by “pater meus Simon et avus meus Theodericus”, at the request of “patruæ meæ dominæ Haræ abbatissæ sanctæ Mariæ de Monte”, by charter dated 21 Mar 1156, in the presence of “uxore mea Bertha[30].

Duke Thierry II & his second wife had [five] children:

d)         THIERRY de Lorraine ([1099/1101]-17 Jan 1168).  He is named in the Cartulaire de Saint-Bertin, which also specifies his parentage[31].  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[32].  He succeeded in 1128 as THIERRY I Count of Flanders.

e)         GERARD de Lorraine (-after 1117).  The Passio Karoli Comitis names "Simonis et Gerardi" as sons of "Theodericus dux" & his wife Gertrude[33].  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[34]

f)          HENRI de Lorraine (-6 Jun 1165, bur Toul Cathedral).  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[35].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the appointment of "Henricus…frater ducis Simonis de Nanceio et illius qui postea fuit comes Flandrensis" as Bishop of Toul in 1126[36].  William of Tyre names him as brother of Thierry I Count of Flanders when recording his presence with Konrad II King of Germany in Palestine in 1148[37].  He was elected Bishop of Toul in Mar 1126, installed at Metz in Jul 1126. 

g)         BAUDOUIN .  The Cartulaire de Saint-Bertin records "Balduinum fratrem Theoderici comitis Flandrie"[38]

i)          [GISELA de Lorraine .  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[40], the wife of Graf Friedrich may have been the daughter of Thierry II Duke of Lorraine, but the basis for this speculation is not know.  The primary source which confirms her two marriages has not yet been identified.  m firstly --- [von Tecklenburg], son of ---.  m secondly FRIEDRICH [I] Graf im Saargau, son of SIGEBERT [I] Graf im Saargau & his wife --- (-before 1135).]

SIMON I 1115-1139, MATHIEU I 1138-1176, SIMON II 1176-1206

 

SIMON de Lorraine, son of THIERRY II Duke of Lorraine & his first wife Hedwig von Formbach (-[13/15] Jan 1139, bur Stürzelbronn).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Symonem ducem" as son of "Theodericum ducem"[44].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[45], Duke Simon was the son of his father's first marriage.  This appears to be confirmed by the charter dated 10 Oct 1091 under which Pibon Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the monastery of Toul Saint-Léon and named "dux Theodericus et Simon puer eius filius, et frater ducis Gerardus comes et Renardus comes Tillensis"[46].  Poull[47] refers to several sources which apparently indicate that he was the son of Duke Thierry II's second marriage, including Duke Simon's own act dated 11 Apr 1126 which refers to his deceased "mother Gertrude".  However, Duke Simon married "his stepmother's daughter whom she had by her first husband Graf Heinrich"[48], which is best interpreted as meaning that he married the daughter of Gertrude de Flandre, second wife of Duke Thierry II, by her first husband.  The alternative interpretation, that Duke Simon (assumed for the purposes of this argument to be the son of Gertrude de Flandre) married the daughter of Hedwig von Formbach by an otherwise unknown first husband "Graf Heinrich" presents major chronological difficulties.  Such a daughter could not have been born later than 1072 at the latest.  Considering that Hedwig gave birth to two children by her husband Gerhard von Süpplingenburg who died in 1075, such a birth date appears incompatible with Duke Simon's wife having given birth to at least seven children, even if their marriage took place as early as [1112/13] as suggested by Poull.  Two further sources confirm that Duke Simon was born from his father's first marriage.  Firstly, the Gesta Alberonis Archiepiscopi names "Lotharingiæ ducem Symonem, fratrem regis [=Lothar von Süpplingenburg]" when recording his excommunication 10 Apr 1132[49], Emperor Lothar being Simon's uterine half-brother assuming that Hedwig von Formbach was his mother.  Secondly, "Teodericus dux Lotharingie" donated the church at Nancy to the abbey of Molesme with the consent of "filio suo Simone" by charter dated to [1080/90][50] which, assuming this dating is correct, was before the date of Duke Thierry's second marriage.  “Theodoricus...Lotharingorum princeps, dux et marchio” donated “quidquid continetur a rivo de Grimommont usque ad nemus de Granviller et usque ad nemus de Stivay” to Saint-Dié, at the request of “Hugonis de Distorchio”, in the presence of “suorum filiorum...Simonis, Theodorici, Gerardi, Henrici”, by charter dated 19 Mar 1114[51].  He succeeded his father in 1115 as SIMON I Duke of Lorraine.  "Simon...dux Lotharingiæ et marchio" donated “ecclesiam...de Pixerecourt...partem decimarum villæ...de Margeville et Augecourt” to the abbey of Bouxières-aux-Dames, in the presence of “soror mea domina Hara abbatissæ”, by charter dated 30 Mar 1130[52].  “Simon...Lotharingorum dux” renounced claims over property of “ecclesia de Sancti-Remigii-Monte”, brought by “patris mei beatæ memoriæ ducis Theodorici”, with the support of “uxore mea...ducissa Adelide...cum Matthæo...unico  nostro filio”, by undated charter[53].  He founded the Cistercian monastery of Sainte-Marue-au-Bois at Stürzelbronn.  The necrology of Notre-Dame aux Nonnains records the death "15 Jan" of "Symon dux Lotaringeris"[54].  The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "XIX Kal Feb" of "Simon Lotaringorum dux"[55].  The necrology of Gorze records the death "XIX Kal Feb" of "Simon dux Lotharingiæ"[56].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy-lès-Toul records the death "14 Jan" of "Sigismundus dux"[57]

m ([1112/13]) ADELAIDE de Louvain, daughter of HENRI III Comte de Louvain & his wife Gertrude de Flandre (before 1095-4 Nov after 1158).  Simon Duke of Lorraine married "his stepmother's daughter whom she had by her first husband Graf Heinrich"[58].  In light of the chronological difficulties of this having been a daughter of Duke Thierry II's first wife, it is likely that Duke Simon's wife was the daughter of the comte de Louvain, whose wife married Duke Thierry as his second wife.  “Simon...Lotharingorum dux” renounced claims over property of “ecclesia de Sancti-Remigii-Monte”, brought by “patris mei beatæ memoriæ ducis Theodorici”, with the support of “uxore mea...ducissa Adelide...cum Matthæo...unico  nostro filio”, by undated charter[59].  Her name is confirmed by the charter dated 1155, after 1 Sep, under which "Judit Romaricensis ecclesie abbatissa" donated property at the request of "Aledis mater ducis Mathei"[60].  After the death of her husband, Adelaide retired to the Cistercian abbey of Notre-Dame du Tart, near Dijon[61]

Duke Simon I & his wife had [eight] children: 

1.         [MATHIEU de Lorraine (-4 Nov [before 1119]).  “Simon...Lotharingorum dux” renounced claims over property of “ecclesia de Sancti-Remigii-Monte”, brought by “patris mei beatæ memoriæ ducis Theodorici”, with the support of “uxore mea...ducissa Adelide...cum Matthæo...unico  nostro filio”, by undated charter[62].  This charter is dated to before the birth of the dukes younger sons.  It is unclear whether Duke Simon´s son Mathieu, named in the document, was an older son who died young or the future Duke Mathieu I.] 

2.         AGATHE de Lorraine .  The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising records the wife of Comte Renaud as "Simonis Lotharingiorum ducis filiam"[63]Raynaldus Burgundiæ comes” donated property to Besançon cathedral, with the consent of “fratris nostri Guillermi comitis et...collateralis nostræ Agathæ Lotharingiæ ducis filiæ”, by charter dated 1148[64]She was first cousin once removed of her husband but no mention of a Papal dispensation for the marriage has so far been identified.  “Matheus...Lotharingorum Dux et marchio” donated property to Tart abbey, with the consent of “uxoris mee Berthe...fratris mei Balduini et Agathe sororis mee”, by charter dated 1142[65]m ([1130]) RENAUD [III] Comte [Palatin] de Bourgogne, son of ETIENNE [I] Comte de Mâcon & his wife Beatrix de Lorraine (-22 Jan 1148 or 20 Jan 1149).
