BIOGRAPHY Godfried III was the count of Leuven (or Louvain) and Brussels, landgrave of Brabant, margrave of Antwerp, and duke of Lower Lorraine (as Godfried VIII) from 1142 to his death. He was born about 1141, the son of Godfried II and Lutgardis von Sulzbach. He was an infant at his succession and the petty lords immediately sought to benefit from his minority to increase their own wealth and power. The abbey of Grimbergen was burnt in 1142. Only with the preaching of the Second Crusade was a truce reached. On 30 March 1147 Godfried was present at the coronation of Heinrich Berengar, the son of Konrad III of Germany, in Aachen. When Konrad left on Crusade, the wars began anew in 1148. Peace was elusive until the election of Konrad's successor, Friedrich Barbarossa. By his marriage in January 1155 to Margaretha von Limburg, daughter of Heinrich II, Herzog von Limburg, Graf von Arlon, Godfried united the two most powerful and antagonistic houses in the region. He and Margaretha had two sons of whom Hendrik I would have progeny. In 1159 Godfried embarked on a decade-long war with his vassals, the Berthout. In 1171 he was at war with Hainault, where he was defeated. At that point he associated his son Hendrik with the ducal throne. In 1172 Margaretha died, and in 1175 he married Imagina von Looz, daughter of Ludwig I, Graf von Looz, Burggraf von Mainz, and Agnes von Metz, and they had two sons who would both have progeny. In 1180 Godfried married his son Hendrik to Mathilde de Boulogne, a niece of Philippe d'Alsace, count of Flanders. With this marriage he yielded the counties of Brussels and Aerschot. He left Hendrik behind as regent when he went on Crusade between 1182 and 1184. In the interim, Barbarossa gave Hendrik the title of Duke of Brabant. Godfried died on 21 August 1190, leaving an increased patrimony. He had built the fortress of Nedelaer. The ducal title was transmitted to his son by the Diet of Schwäbisch Hall.
