Floris (Florent) II "the Fat" GERULFING Count of Holland (1091-1121)

  • Married: Abt 1108
  • Died: 2 Mar 1121

  Research Notes:

Floris the Fat, was the first from the native dynasty of Holland to be called Count of Holland.

Floris II ended the conflict with the Bishop of Utrecht (which he inherited from his father, and should be seen in light of the power struggle between the Pope and the Holy Roman Emperor), most likely by becoming his vassal. In 1101 he was endowed with the title of Count of Holland by the bishop of Utrecht, after acquiring Rhineland (Leiden and surroundings) ('comes de Hollant', up until that time the counts' dominion had been officially referred to as Frisia).

   Marriage Information:

Floris married Gertrude dit Petronilla DE HAUTE-LORRAINE, daughter of Thierry (Dietrich) II DE LORRAINE Duke of Upper Lorraine and Gfn. Hedwig VON FORMBACH, about 1108. (Gertrude dit Petronilla DE HAUTE-LORRAINE was born in 1095 and died on 23 May 1144.)
