Counts and Dukes of Limburg

Today there is both a Belgian and a Dutch province with the name Limburg, the original Limburg was a county that does not have much in common with these provinces. The counts of Limburg were also dukes of Lower Lorraine 1101-1106 and 1128-1139 but they lost Lorraine to the counts of Leuven (Brabant). As a compensation Limburg was elevated to a duchy 1106. Limburg was later united with Brabant after a war over the succession 1283-1288 and together with Brabant became Limburg a part of the Burgundian lands 1430. The northern half of Limburg with the city of Maastricht was later conquered by The Netherlands during the Dutch revolt. The former Austrian Netherlands, Which southern Limburg belonged to, joined the Netherlands in 1815 and a province named Limburg that was much larger than the original county was created. The Belgian revolt 1830 led to a partition of that province. Apart from a small strip of land have the Belgian province nothing in common with the original county. The southern French speaking half of the county is instead a part of the Belgian province of Liťge today.
