Gebhard (* 888 bezeugt; ? im Juni 910, wohl am 22., gefallen bei Augsburg) aus der Familie der Konradiner war Herzog von Lothringen von 903 bis zu seinem Tod. Sein Vater war Udo im Lahngau. Gebhard wird 897 und 906 als Graf im oberen Rheingau erw�ahnt, im Jahr 909 als Graf in der Wetterau. Er war ein Angeh�origer einer der zu dieser Zeit m�achtigsten Familien des Reiches, die als (einzige) Verwandte der Kaisers Arnulf und seines unm�undigen Sohnes Ludwig das Kind am Wechsel vom 9. zum 10. Jahrhundert eine zentrale Rolle spielten. Arnulf hatte Gebhards �alteren Bruder Konrad den �Alteren in seinem Kampf gegen die fr�ankischen Babenberger als Markgraf in Th�uringen eingesetzt, seinen j�ungeren Bruder Rudolf als Bischof von W�urzburg, und der Familie damit die vorherrschende Stellung in Franken verschafft (siehe auch: Babenberger Fehde). Unter Ludwigs K�onigtum und der Herrschaft vor allem der Konradiner wurde Gebhard als drittem Bruder 903 der Titel dux regni quod a multis Hlotharii dicitur gegeben, mit dem er - neben dem Grafen Reginhar - der herzogliche Statthalter des K�onigs in Lothringen war. Gebhard fiel im Juni 910 beim Kampf gegen die Ungarn in der N�ahe von Augsburg. Gebhard hatte zwei S�ohne: * Udo (? 949) 914 Graf in der Wetterau, 917 und 948 Graf in Rheingau, 918 Graf im Lahngau, stiftet 914/915 das Kloster St. Maria in Wetzlar, wo er auch begraben wurde, ?

The Notiti� Fundationis Monasterii Bosonis-Vill� 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 Ch�atenois. Emperor Heinrich III appointed him as GERARD Duke of Upper Lotharingia after his brother was killed in battle in Nov 1048. "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 me� Gisl�"[4]. According to the 14th century chronicle of Jean de Bayon, Duke G�erard was poisoned[5]. The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy records the death "11 Aug" of "Gerardus dux"[6]. m HEDWIG de Namur, daughter of ALBERT I Comte de Namur & his wife Ermengardis 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 [fili� Karoli ducis]" and as mother of "Theodericum ducem et Gerardum comitem fratres"[7]. 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"[8]. "Hadewidis ductrix" founded the abbey ofCh�atenois by charter dated to after 1075, confirmed "post obitum ductricis Hadewidis" by "dux Theodericus filius eius"[9]. Duke G�erard & his wife had four children: 1. THIERRY de Lorraine (-30 Dec 1115). The Notiti� Fundationis Monasterii Bosonis-Vill� records the succession of "dux Theodericus puer parvulus Gerhardi ducis filius"[10], 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 Vaud�emont 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 Ch�atenois by charter dated to after 1075, confirmed "post obitum ductricis Hadewidis" by "dux Theodericus filius eius"[11]. During the investiture crisis, Duke Thierry supported Emperor Heinrich IV who enabled him to take control of Metz after expelling Hermann Bishop of Metz[12]. Emperor Heinrich V granted him the title "Marquis" in [1114][13].

According to Poull, Duke Thierry unsuccessfully petitioned the Pope in early 1079 to marry Agn�es d'Aquitaine, widow of Pierre Comte de Savoie, which if correct means that his first marriage inevitably took place after this[15]. 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"[16]. The Genealogica Comitum Flandri� Bertiniana specifies that "Robertus comes cognomento Frisio" had three daughters "tercia Theoderico comiti Alsatie [nupsit]"[17]. Duke Thierry II & his first wife had three children: a) SIMON de Lorraine (-before 1095). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. 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[18]. The Chronologia Johannes de Bekerecords the marriage of Count Floris and "Petronillam Lotharii cesaris sororem"[19]. The Annales Magdeburgenses name "Gertrudeis comitissa de?Holland?soror Lotherii Saxonis ducis" when recording her rebellion in 1123[20]. 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"[21]. 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"[22]. Beke's Egmondsch Necrologium records the death "1144 X Kal Iun" of "Petronilla comitissa"[23]. m (1113) FLORIS II Count of Holland, son of DIRK V Count [of Holland] & his wife Othelindis --- (-2 Mar 1121). c) SIMON de Lorraine (-13/14 Jan 1139, bur St�urzelbronn). The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Symonem ducem" as son of "Theodericum ducem"[24]. He succeeded his father in 1115 as SIMON I Duke of Lorraine. - see below.

He succeeded in 1128 as THIERRY I Count of Flanders. - COUNTS of FLANDERS. e) [GERARD de Lorraine (-after 1117). The Passio Karoli Comitis names "Simonis et Gerardi" as sons of "Theodericus dux" & his wife Gertrude[26]. This is the sole reference so far identified to the couple having a son named G�erard. However, it is possible that "Gerardi" in the source was simply an error for "Theoderici". Considering the extent to which the role of the future Count Thierry is discussed in later parts of the Passio, it is barely credible that he should have been omitted from the section recounting the family's genealogy. The inaccuracy of this genealogical section is also demonstrated by Simon being referred to as Gertrude's son which, as demonstrated above, is unlikely to have been correct.] f) HENRI de Lorraine (-6 Jun 1165, bur Toul Cathedral). 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[27]. William of Tyre names him brother of Thierry I Count of Flanders when recording his presence with Konrad II King of Germany in Palestine in 1148[28].

April 14, 1070) was the count of Metz and Chatenois from 1047, when his brother Duke Adalbert resigned them to him on becoming the duke of Lorraine. On Adalbert's death the next year, Gerard became duke and was so until his death. In contemporary documents, he is called Gerard of Alsace (after his familial homeland), Gerard of Chatenoy (after an ancestral castle near Neufch�ateau), or Gerard of Flanders (after his wife's homeland). His name is spelled G�erard in French and Gerhard in German. He was the second son of Gerard de Bouzonville, count of Metz, and Gisela, possible a daughter of Thierry I, Duke of Upper Lorraine. Henry III, Holy Roman Emperor, invested Adalbert with Lorraine in 1047 after confiscating it from Godfrey III. Godfrey did not back down, however, and killed Adalbert in battle. Henry subsequently bestowed it on Gerard, but the deposed duke continued to stir. Godfrey had the support of a faction of the noblesse who did not want a strong hand at the ducal helm and Gerard was imprisoned. Gerard, however, had the support of the chiefest of his bishops, that of Toul, Bruno of Eguisheim-Dagsburg (later the sainted Pope Leo IX), who procured his liberationin 1049. The emperor gave him troops to assist him in his fight, for the rebels had the support of some elements in the church. Gerard himself remained, as his brother had, faithful to the end to the imperial dynasty and his descendants would remain so as well even into the Hohenstaufen years. His alliance with the church was regular but inconstant and he founded Moyenmoutier Abbey, Saint-Mihiel Abbey, and Remiremont Abbey. The former was the abbey of Cardinal Humbert of Silva Candida, who excommunicated the patriarch of Constantinople, Michael I Cerularius, in 1054, thus precipitating the Great Schism, and the latter was his own final resting place. On 18 June 1053, Gerard and Prince Rudolf of Benevento led papal and Swabian troops into battle on behalf of Pope Leo. This was the Battle of Civitate and it was a disastrous loss for the pope. His enemy, the Normans, under Humphrey of Hauteville and Richard of Aversa, defeated his allies and captured his person, taking him prisoner in Benevento. Gerard, however, returned to Lorraine. Among his other construction projects, was that of the castle of Pr�eny, in the centre of the duchy, the beginnings of the capital city, Nancy. He died at Remiremont while trying to kill a revolt. Poisoning was suspected. The dateof his death is either 14 April or 11 August. He was married to Hedwige of Namur (or of Flanders), daughter of Albert II, Count of Namur, and Regilinda of Verdun. This marriage helped patch up relations with the baronage. They had the following issue: Thierry II (c.1055-1115), successor in Lorraine Gerard (1057-1108), count of Vaud�emont Beatrice, married Stephen I, Count of Burgundy, M�acon, and Vienne Gisela, abbess of Remiremont He was the progenitor the line of duke which ruled Lorraine until 1755. -------------------- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerard,_Duke_of_Lorraine -------------------- Gerard, Duke of Lorraine From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Gerard IV, Duke of Alsace (ca. 1030 ?

Regino records the war in 902 between "Adalbertus cum fratribus Adalhardo et Heinrico" against "Eberhardum et Gebehardum et Rodulfum fratres", specifying that "postmodum iussu Gebehardi decollatus est"[270]. Regino names "Chuonradus senior [et] frater eius Gebehardus", specifying that Gebhard "in Weidereiba poterat"[271]. Duke of Lotharingia. "Hludowicus?rex" confirmed privileges to KlosterSt Gallen by charter dated 24 Jun 903 in which among "fidelium nostrum" was listed "?Kebehart dux regni quod a multis Hlotharii dicitur?"[272]. "Hludowicus?rex" confirmed property of Stift Kaiserswerth naming "Cuonrat?propinquusnoster et abba c?nobii sancti Suithberti" at the request of "comitum?Cuonrati?et Gebeharti" by charter dated 3 Aug 904[273]. Graf im Wormsgau: "Hludowicus?rex" confirmed property of the church of Worms including "res in pago Wormazfelde in comitatu Kuonrati" which "comes Gebehartus" held, by charter dated 2 Sep 906[274]. "Hludowicus?rex" confirmed an exchange of properties between Kloster Fulda and Kloster Echternach after consulting "fidelium nostrorumcomitum vero Kebeharti, Liutpoldi, Burcharti, Eginonis, Liutfredi, Iringi et Cunpoldi" by charter dated 19 Mar 907[275].

Regino records the death of "Gebeardus comes" fighting the Hungarians[277]. m ---. The identity of Gebhard's wife is not known with certainty. Jackman highlights the LiberMemorialis of Remiremont which lists (in order) "Gebardi duci, Hidda, Riquinus, Christianus, Raginfridus". He associates the first two with Duke Gebhard [Konradiner] & his wife, whom he therefore speculates was named '''HIDDA [Ida]''', and the last three with the family of Gebhard's wife[278]. Jackman speculates[279] that the wife of Duke Gebhard may have been a sister of Hermann Archbishop of K�oln, and descended from Christian [I] Graf von Grabfeld, possibly the daughter of Christian [II] Graf im Grabfeld. This series of suppositions provides support for his theory that Gebhard's grandson Otto was the same person as Otto Graf von Grabfeld. *Duke Gebhard & his wife had two children: # '''UDO''' ([895/900]-949). # '''HERMANN''' (-10 Dec 949, bur Reichenau Island) -------------------- http://genealogy.euweb.cz/lorraine/lorraine1.html#GM The early generations of The House of Lorraine are as follows, starting with three brothers: * A1.
