BIOGRAPHY Gertrud was born about 1030, the daughter of Bernhard II, Herzog von Sachsen, and Eilica von Schweinfurt. About 1050 she married Floris I, Graaf van Holland, son of Dirk III, Graaf van Holland, and his wife Othelhildis. They had seven children, of whom two, Dirk and Bertha, would have progeny. Bertha married Philippe I, king of France. On the death of Floris in 1061, Dirk became Graaf van Holland. As he was still young she became regent.

When Dirk V succeeded his father, Willem I, bishop of Utrecht, took advantage of the situation, occupying territory that he had claimed in Holland. Gertrud and her son withdrew to the islands of Friesia (Zeeland), leaving Willem to occupy the disputed lands.

In 1063 Gertrud married Robert I 'the Friesian', Graaf van Vlaanderen, the second son of Baudouin V, Graaf van Vlaanderen, and Adèle de France. She and her husband, who had five children of whom three would have progeny, acted as co-regents for the young count. Gertrud died on 4 August 1113.
