"Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis…" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice…". On his marriage, he entered into possession of the château and seigneurie de Montbéliard.
He succeeded his father in [1071/76] in his territories of Altkirch, Ferrette, and around Hagenau. He was present at the 1076 enfranchisement of the chapel in the castle of Amance. He inherited the region of the future county of Bar from his mother in 1093. He had taken a vow to join the First Crusade but was released from it due to illness. He was invested as Comte de Verdun after 1096 by Richer Bishop of Verdun. He dictated his testament in 1102 at the castle of Altkirch.
