Baldwin: Birth: 1088. Death: 1120
Note: He was the younger son of Baldwin VI, Count of Flanders and became Count after the death of his older brother, Arnulf III, Count of Flanders. The family claim to the title Count of Flanders was lost by his brother's death. He married Ida of Louvain (a sister of Godfrey I, Duke of Lower Lorraine) in 1084. Baldwin joined the First Crusade and was sent back to Constantinople with Hugh of Vermandois after the siege of Antioch in 1098, to seek assistance from Byzantine emperor Alexius I. However, Baldwin disappeared during a raid by the Seljuk Turks in Anatolia, and was presumably killed.
