Lambert I (Lions)
Lambert married the Carolingian Gerberga (* probably 975; † January 27 after 1018) around 985-990 , the eldest daughter of Duke Karl of Lower Lorraine , who had been pretender to the West Franconian throne since 987 and was imprisoned by Hugo Capet in 991 and was in Orléans until his death was incarcerated. Lambert and Gerberga are buried in the monastery of St. Gertrud zu Nevilles.
From this marriage, the Counts of Löwen derived their claim to the Duchy of Lower Lorraine, which Lambert's descendants were also able to realize from 1106 with Gottfried I von Löwen .
Lambert and Gerberga had at least four children:
- Henry I the Old († 1038 after August 5), Count of Leuven and Brussels from 1015 to before 1038; ∞ Marriage to a daughter of Count Baldwin IV of Flanders is sometimes accepted.
- Lambert II († Doornik, June 19, 1054), Count of Leuven and Brussels around 1041; ∞ Oda von Verdun († October 23 of an unknown year after 1047), daughter of Duke Gotzelo I.
- Mathilde; ∞ Eustach I, Count of Boulogne († around 1049)
