Dukes of Brabant

The predecessor to Brabant was the duchy of Lower Lorraine that had been created in 959. This duchy included the larger part of Belgium and parts of western Germany but it soon disintegrated into smaller counties and duke of Lower Lorraine became a meaningless title. One of these counties was Leuven whose counts also was duke of Lower Lorraine 1106-1128 and 1139-1190. Hendrik I transformed these two possessions into the duchy of Brabant 1190. The house of Valois-Burgundy acquired Brabant through marriage 1406 and it was inherited by Filips the Good of Burgundy where after its history is identical with Belgium's.
